GarageBand Pros

Almost perfectOk so I’ve been using GarageBand seriously for 3 years. And I’ve enjoyed making beats on it. I truly have. I think it just needs a little bit of adjustment. One thing I request is to add in a saxophone sound. I’ve been trying to make a chill beat with a saxophone in it and I’m not gonna buy a saxophone for this one beat. Another thing is to have tuned drum kits. For example, in the FL studio you can use a hi-hat sound, but it on a piano roll, and make a cool effect where if you make a quick chromatic sequence, it has a cool ascending hi-hat sound. I have one last request. Auto-tune. Now you don’t have to, but it would be a cool little feature to have on GarageBand. Like say I were to record me singing one note, say middle C. I would like for that note to change into other notes. Like if I recorded myself singing the note C, and the word “office”, and both syllables were on beat, each syllable could be different notes, or to make it more complicated, divide the syllables by twos, threes, fours, fives, sixes and so on and so fourth. Ok that got complicated. I just wanted to get the specifics about a possible new auto-tune feature. But so far the app is great I just request those three things. Have a great day!.The child indoorsVersion: 2.3.7

Great but it won’t let me download it.So when I first clicked on the app I thought it wouldn’t be much but then I thought wrong. I immediately got addicted. Then I woke up and saw the app not on my iPad. I searched everywhere how to get it back. Then I updated my system software and search in the App Store, AND ITS THERE! I start jumping. I then click the cloud and look at it download. The circle didn’t even fill up? I cancelled the download again and again. And it still doesn’t let download it...Sgt seedsVersion: 2.3.8

GarageBand Cons

Good but a few drawbacksIt’s a good and well made app don’t get me wrong however this game is absolutely MASSIVE this takes up wayyyy too much storage, just to download the app I had to delete over 100 photos and videos and several apps. I personally think there are some rather unused features which could be removed to help with this also the application can be pretty laggy and crash at times especially for people like me who have a slightly older phone. On a side note I personally think it’s quite confusing and hard to navigate sometimes which is quite off putting for new users but that might just be me. But nonetheless it’s a pretty solid app and fun to mess around with or to make genuine music with. it works, and once you get the hang of it, it is very good..Rayrac82Version: 2.3.8

Sucks nowIt was great but I can’t use it anymore.Husb shsVersion: 2.3.8
