Garbage band 1/5
No matter how many times I try I CAN NOT Install this app, it'll get to about 98% and then a pop up appears telling me it's unable to download and prompts me to retry... PLEASE HELP
Great app but... 4/5
The app is great, however it would be really nice to see some more instruments, such as a ukelele option for the guitar, a piccolo, and some more options for music around the world such as pan flutes or Asian drums. Overall it's a great app, but could become even better with more instruments.
Something wrong with this app i tried many times to download this app it doesnt work?
Getting better and better!!! 4/5
I absolutely love garage band. It has gotten me so far, but as a voiceover user, it is so difficult to use. It is possible, but it is very difficult. When I am using live loops, I wish you could double tap on each loop, so you will not accidentally press the wrong one. Also, when you are using live loops, you can select a genre. It sounds like to me, quite a few sounds in dub step sound like something you would here in hip-hop. So for the synths,I sometimes will use the dub step genre. It would be great to have more of the modern sound of hip hop beats, but still not forgetting the old school sound When you are not using live loops, is it possible that the drums can have more of a kick, or 808 sound? When you press random pattern, or even when you are not using the random pattern button, it would be cool to have more of a swing like you would here in hip-hop beats. Maybe you can select the style of hip-hop beat. Such as trap, dirty south, east coast, old school, etc. when using the smart piano, maybe it should ask you what kind of piano genre sound you want. So if you want a piano you were here in hip-hop, you can select that. Nothing too different, it can be just like selecting an instrument by swiping three fingers left or right. In the basis, couldn't have more of a selection of rhythms instead of the same thing? In other words, Kennett have a little bit more auto play selections? Now, it only goes up to four. It will be cool if he could have eight or so. I don't want to ask for too much, but I am asking this because I know GarageBand can help me be the true position I want to be. It has helped me, and it is constantly improving, so here are some suggestions that will be great to have. #GarageBand
FIX THIS NOW 1/5
By I'm cool hdjfj
Im furious i make beats from scratch on this and rap to them for fun i spent all day making this beat and then i get an optimizing performance pop up and then my bass was super messed up and my beat sounded like trash this is the second time this has happened and its unacceptable fix this now
Great app 5/5
So many options. Very high quality. Professional app!
Best free music app hands down 5/5
GarageBand is amazing. The drummer option is still one of the best sounding natural drum ai I've heard on ios. The sample instruments sound great (particularly the whirly and EP sound really spot on). The recent addition of alchemy synth is an added bonus. Really great analogue and also newer synth sounds there.
Now a lot of people have complained about the guitar sims but honestly they sound pretty good (better than ampkit in my opinion) and while they don't hold up against tonestack (my favorite) or bias/jamup you can't complain when it's free and it can definitely get the job done unless your songs are mostly guitar. In that case I'd get tonestack and run it into garageband instead.
The only real complaint I have is the sequencer daw. Its a very clunky interface compared to other daws like nanostudio/beat maker but definitely better than korg gadget (what a nightmare). Fix that and id be happy as hell.
All and all even with the daw issues I can't really complain. Its an amazing app that's also free and does a lot of different things well!

I would like to Have GarageBand As an inter App Audio for cubasis 2 And beatmaker 2
By Sev Jordan999019
It's good, I just wish there was more to work with. Epic fighting sound effects like back where Spartans were, for example the movie Troy's soundtracks have epic sounds that make them soundtracks and go with the movie.
Alchemy Won't Work on iPad Mini 2? 1/5
I used Alchemy for years prior to it's it's maker, Camel being purchased by Apple, which was a very sad and frustrating period for me.
You see, I had purchased multiple sound packs from Camel, which I lost access to. They kept the synth up for a while, but what was the point? The import/export no long worked.
I moved on to other DAWs.
Prior to this happening, I could access, import/export and utilize every function of Alchemy with my iPad Mini 2 with no lagging or freeze ups. Fast forward to the present day, and now Apple has included Alchemy as part of their Garage Band app, but the Alchemy patches will no longer work on my Mini 2. Moreover, with no slot available for a memory card (standard on my $49 Kindle), I discovered that using a memory intensive app with no other secondary storage option other than iCloud is decidedly less than optimal, especially when traveling overseas.
Spending $700 for a new iPad without additional storage so that I can access Alchemy again is also less than optional, at least for me.........
PLEASE FIX 2/5
Yo, on the audio thing, please fix it. I cant see a thing! When i was tryna make a ringtone, i couldnt see the loop thing or anything!!
Won't let me download 1/5

You should allow soundfonts to be played in the app.
Timpani, Bass Drum? Great app, could be better. 4/5
By Please add it please please
Why didn't you do that apple? This app has an orchestra in it and the timpani and bass drum are nowhere to be found. I
PLZ FIX THE VOCAL TRANSFORMER 4/5
Hey Apple, I LOVE GARAGEBAND! I use it almost everyday and it's super pro for its price BUT I have one major issue, the vocal transformer effect. (The voice pitcher etc.) everytime I try to use it my voice becomes really choppy and delayed from the mic idk why and its rlly annoying because I really need to use that effect and its pretty much useless because you can't record anything while using it with the delay and the choppiness :( . PLZ FIX THIS, IM BEGGING YOU I LOVE THIS APP!!!🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
Allows one to make professional sounding songs 4/5
By Really dont get this
I've been using garage band for a few years now, and I use it as a base template for sheet music making and I just love this, it's better than some music making softwares PC or Mobile out there. Since it's updates and improvements it is definitely more professional sounding, able to be taken seriously, and allows for some cool synth, pop, etc. sounds. However, the optimizing performance notification is really annoying and wastes time, I hope that is fixed in the future. For now, this app is fantastic.
I don't know if this is because I am a iPhone 6 user but I can't download the app. I have a lot of space maybe like 29 GB
But I can't download the app. Please help
Its great but... 5/5
Please add more beats like more Sub Basses and Drum kits
By Martina Jas
Trying to download garage band app and its seem to keep on saying try again.Could you please fix it
Apple has updated this a few months ago. They added great new features like beat mixer things. It's amazing! No problem whatsoever.
Worse ap 2/5
By sharyn belieber
I'm trying to download this ap whit my wifi n still can't even be complete I been waiting 1hour n I will just have to give up downlaoding this crap
They should add accordions.
I have an idea 5/5
By Dangr noodl
This is an awesome app! I really like the new update. I've been wanting a bass for a long time. One thing that would also be pretty cool is a ukulele. But you could make it a little bit different. There could be the normal option to play it on the app, but you could also do this: have a case that connects an iPhone to an iPad(not like you're stacking them, more like the bottom of the phone is connected to the top of the iPad) have it so the fret board is on the iPhone, and you can strum on the iPad. Idk, I think that would be a cool idea.
My favorite app 5/5
This is one of my favorite music apps.
This app is great! 5/5
I recommend this app highly because it is just super amazing! You can do so much stuff and create the best songs! Although, I would like it a bit better if you made like bells you could use? Or maybe a beach drum? But otherwise, This app is great! Thank you 😊 !
Want download 1/5
But takes up a lot of room.
Great app with a request 5/5
By Yo boi Austino
GarageBand is a great app for on the go music making. I love the new alchemy update.
My request, it would be helpful if there was a "create your own drum pad machine" option with variety of snares, kicks, hit hats, and claps that I could choose from to make my own drum pad machine.
GarageBand is already an amazing app. I just think it would be even more amazing if that option was available.
Luv app 4/5
By MIDI me
There are only two things I have found that I dislike about this app;
1. There are only three time signatures available.
2. I can only have one time signature to a song.
Ok so I like it but 5/5
By Gt 🚀✈️
Could you guys add a mini synth
This app absolutely amazing. Five stars
This is the best music making app there is right now 5/5
5 stars for this manly because it's such a fantastic app for music. A lot of starters can get their feet off the ground with it. Apple has done an amazing job with this. Especially the update. Simply Amazing
A6 live loops 4/5
My iPad is an older model, and it can't support live loops. Could you update this so I can use it?
(edit) I just got a new iPad, so that fixed the problem. But there are still features I can't use. Could you at least make a less sophisticated version of those features compatible with the iPad mini 2?
Just a Thought ☺️ 4/5
The app is really amazing and I truly love it, but I think like a GarageBand 2.0 would be really cool! It might have like more common band, or orchestral band instruments in it! Maybe some woodwind, brass, and low brass instrument!☺️
Great but one thing 5/5
We need more serious sounds, like the one rappers or The Weeknd uses, and make a pad for drums, like a legit one
By Petty nisa
Trust me it's worth it
Needs Bluetooth recording feature! 3/5
By Minnie crymes
I have a bluetooth device do i should be able to use my Bluetooth earpiece right? It is made for phone calls by why draw the line there when my Bluetooth can play music? So in that sense i should be able to record music with it because lets face it. A mic is too expensive when i ALREADY OWN A RIDICULOUSLY EXPENSIVE APPLE DEVICE, and headphones are not cutting it for recording purposes anymore! Just sounds bootleg and cheap and unprofessional to sing in a plastic mic connected to my ear with a thin chord! Bluetooth earpiece devices have so much better quality for picking up your voice and clearing it so your words are annunciated without you having to try! Please add this feature apple!
Add uke, plz 4/5
I love the app, really want unique instruments like a ukulele or something
Every time the app says it's normalizing or whatever, it messes up everything on my songs! I literally just finished the instrumental for a song and I can barely hear it now with the volume all the way up. Fix this app!!!!!!
Changed my life 5/5
I totally recommend this app for music-making lovers. I use GarageBand to make my own songs and they come out amazing. 😍 I was first introduced to this app as a sophomore in my music exploration class on my school iPad. Ever since the first days of school, I have kept using this app. I have more than 5 songs already made with this app, and I keep using it.
There is a problem 2/5
By omg fjcghbvcffghbvd
So I've used at our school iPads a lot and I thought it was fun but I downloaded it on my iPhone 5s and it said unable to download please fix this.
So cool 4/5
I love this game so much. I like it better than any other music games. But one problem with it, I don't understand anything so many you can do a tutorial or something that will show me or any other confused people how to play this. Can't wait for you to fix it. Thank you 😊.
If you want to make music and be known for your music and impact the world. Apple gave you that ability with this application. Blessed to be apart of the Apple family and it's GarageBand project.
Great music app. It is a lot of fun to make your own music.😋🦄 🎶
Wow! Suggestions also 5/5
Please add a Brass Section in the instrument categories with
- French Horn
Also with the sections of them all together to create a Brass Ensemble! It would be cool!
As a matter of fact, I notice the icons show instruments unavailable on the app and they all also need to be added with anything else you'd like. And please undo the Maxium of 32 instruments please. Make it unlimited because this song I'm making is important and special! Thanks! I hope you read this Apple!
By Kayla. Gaming
The apple company has made many good apps/games before but this one I would have to say was the best one! It's calming, shows creativity, motivates you to play music in real life, and it helps you learn to play real music! I love it and keep up the good work!
I hate it😤😤😠😡😡😡😡😡😡😡 1/5
This app is so stupid the that I do with the drums is not the beat I do with the drums are not the same
