GarageBand is one of three of the apps in the iLife suite.  It turns your iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch into a collection of Touch Instruments and a full-featured recording studio — so you can make music anywhere you go. Use Multi-Touch gestures to play pianos, organs, guitars, drums, and basses. They sound and play like their counterparts, but let you do things you could never do on a real instrument.

Enjoy a range of Smart Instruments that make you sound like a pro — even if you’ve never played a note before. Plug an electric guitar into your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch and play through classic amps and stompbox effects. Gather your friends to play and record like a real band with Jam Session.* Use the built-in microphone or a guitar to record or capture any performance. Then mix up to eight tracks to create a song you can share in email or send directly to Facebook, YouTube and SoundCloud.

Some great features include:

  • Use your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch to play or record live over Wi-Fi or Bluetooth with up to three of your friends
  • Tempo, key, time signature, and chords automatically sync to the bandleader
  • Jam with any Touch Instrument or live instruments like electric guitar or voice
  •  Tap Record at any time to capture your band’s best moments
  • The bandleader automatically collects everyone’s recordings so they can be mixed as a song and shared
  • Share your songs directly to Facebook, YouTube, and SoundCloud
