Comments and Ratings for GarageBand

Experienced Users View of new interface/Options (10.2)
09/06/2017 14:17:54 5/5 By WorthyWarren
5* I Have been using GB for 5 years and was already happy with the amount of options to create, play around, and then master your work with… However while the new interface at first glance seems less ‘pretty’. It soon dawns on You the scale of the upgrade. No more waiting for new drummers to load (If transposing beats into other oddities is your thing). Panning etc can been clearly seen with the addition of colours. New Instruments and patches. The sheer ammount of additions almost renders it a new program. 10 out of 10. And ive only just got ‘under the hood’… I shall be Poking around the interface for a while yet, there are endless little tweaks and inclusions to hunt out...!

I want to revert to old version (10.2)
09/06/2017 07:15:47 4/5 By Louise35
Not happy with this update, new display is terrible and very off-putting how can you revert to previous version

New Update: June 2017 (10.2)
08/06/2017 17:00:00 5/5 By 11110000345
I found the new ‘Modern’ display system to be very off-putting. It seems they’ve tried to recreate the harshness of an Ableton so the £3.99 application is percieved as professional. it annoys me, but i’m sure i’ll get used to it. only the other hand, i’ve found the app has stopped crashing as frequently as it used to. and the update did add more Apple loops and Drum presets for the CHEATERS who use those kinds of features.

Never wanted it (10.2)

Rubbish (10.1.4)
30/12/2016 04:34:00 1/5 By Theo Livadeas
doesnt even open the app

removed instruments (10.1.3)
01/12/2016 13:40:00 2/5 By Widjii
they even removed violins, a lot, a lot, a lot of instruments have dissapeared int the latest version, i do not suggest updating

Great once you get into it. (10.1.3)
26/11/2016 13:42:00 4/5 By GibbsyG
Have been playing around with it for some time now, exploring what it can actually do. Pretty amazing really for the money. Have recorded some great sounding tracks with it. Love the automation edit facility. Cons, would love to see ‘Smart instruments’ as on the iPad version. wish there were some simpler drummers for i.e. folk/country type music. Scrolling down the almost endless over the top drum loops reveals nothing suitable. Oh for some simple classic beats! also wish there was an easier way to adjust echo timings.

A Poor Downgrade! Great for Kids!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! (10.1.2)
13/10/2016 09:32:00 1/5 By jakeyboy75
Absolutely gutted I bought this! This is a massive downgrade from the previous versions of GarageBand. This is now a toy version that is a child-friendly pointless piece of software. Where have the midi controls gone - you give only a couple of dials on the Synths and no external midi control over them - absolutely useless! This is just a toy now for kids to play with. Damn Apple once again! Plenty of crashes and freezes up regularly. Lots of faults with copy and pasting and the looping tool. Timing changes etc. etc. Can’t even finish the first track I made as the timing in the various instrument recording go out or double up if I dare to move anything. Absolute poorly though out RUBBISH!

wheres all sound purchase??? (10.1.2)
14/09/2016 17:28:00 3/5 By Zedamundo
