GarageBand Pros

Some Suggestions?Hello! I’ve been a fan of GarageBand for a long time now- back before the Alchemy Synth and the orchestral instruments were added. It’s been great making music, whether it’s covers of songs or my own creations, but I do have a few things to suggest. Key changes and tempo changes. When you’re working on a song, there are times when you realize, “Dang. This needs a cool change!” Here’s what I’m thinking: When you duplicate/add parts or edit them, there’s a switch for key/tempo changes. When you turn them on, the app will ask what key you want to change it to, or the tempo screen will pop up and say, “What tempo will your song be?” or something. 😂 Ukulele. Please. People may‘ve been asking for this already, but please, please add this in! It’s a cute sounding instrument and for those of us who don’t own one but want to use one in our music, who better to ask than the GarageBand team? Otherwise, it’s a great app, and I love using it. I haven’t experienced any bugs so far, and I’m happy I haven’t! Keep doing what you’re doing, guys! ❤️ Peace out! ✌🏻.—• B •—Version: 2.2.2

Tuning, and time signaturesHello! I love this app and I use it all the time to jot down music ideas I get through the day. One thing that I struggle with, though, is working around 4/4 or 3/4 or 6/8 when I’m trying to work in other time signatures. Things don’t meet up on the ones anymore and it’s a struggle to wrap my head around. Also, when trying to develop ideas in other tuning systems, like just intonation, it’s extremely tedious to 1. Record one midi string note 2. Merge that to itself so it’s just audio 3. Put that audio into the sampler 4. Adjust tuning by using the fine tuning feature 5. Merge new sample midi with itself so I don’t change the tuning for note a when I’m trying to change the tuning of note b. Can you add some way to make each sample track individual so when you adjust things like tuning, it only adjusts that one track and not all other sample tracks? Ideally I would like to have a feature where you can slide each individual note in a midi string track +/- 50 cents. Maybe even adding something like the current articulation feature but for tuning on each note. That way we can slide our notes up and down to the exact vent we want..ThenachokillerVersion: 2.3.14

GarageBand Cons

I don't get itGarageBand is good in some ways, not good in others, and completely ridiculous in others. It's good about keeping everything in sync, easy to create tracks, easy to mix down, and simple to use. But some things in GarageBand makes you scratch your head as to what they were thinking. One of the biggest ridiculous things I've found is dealing with segmented tracks. In song creation it's often necessary to create segmented tracks....add a part here....then another part further down the timeline within the same track. It's also beneficial to then be able to merge some of the segments into one so that you're only dealing with one item rather than several. 6his can be done easily with drum tracks (colored yellow) and touch instruments (colored green). However, recorded tracks such as vocals or plugged instruments or anything recorded (colored blue) CANNOT merge segments together. Why? I have no idea and neither does Apple support. There's no logical reason why you can't do this for recorded tracks. All tracks are waveforms. A waveform is a waveform. It doesn't matter how GarageBand categorizes it. It's still just a waveform. Drum loops are waveforms and segments can be merged. Touch instruments are waveforms and segments can be merged. Recorded tracks are waveforms but CANNOT be merged. Completely ridiculous..OkieWolfVersion: 2.3.7
