GarageBand For iPhone and iPod
- Apple expands GarageBand
- Play instruments
- Plug guitar into Apple device
Apple has announced that GarageBand is now available for iPhone and iPod touch users. Introduced earlier this year on iPad, GarageBand uses Apple’s Multi-Touch interface to make it easy for anyone to create and record their own songs, even if they’ve never played an instrument before.
GarageBand features a collection of Touch Instruments that make it easy for beginners or experienced musicians to play and record keyboards, guitars, drums and basses in a wide variety of styles. Smart Instruments allow users to choose from a new library of custom chords so you can play and strum along with your favourite songs.
You can plug an electric guitar into iPad, iPhone or iPod touch to play and record through classic amps and stompbox effects, or record your voice or any acoustic sound using the built-in microphone. GarageBand allows you to record and mix up to eight tracks and then share your finished song with friends or send it to your Mac to keep working on it in GarageBand or Logic Pro.
GarageBand 1.1 for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch is available on the App Store for recommended retail price $5.49 inc. GST to new users, or as a free update for existing GarageBand for iPad customers. GarageBand is a universal app that runs on iPad, iPad 2, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and iPod touch (3rd and 4th generation).
