One of the standout features of GarageBand is Live Loops. This feature makes it easy for anyone to have fun creating music like a DJ by triggering loops and audio effects in real-time. You can use Multi-Touch gestures to play keyboards, guitars, and drums while enjoying templates like EDM, House, and Hip Hop to get started quickly.

GarageBand also comes with over 1,200 Apple Loops in popular genres that allow you to build your own grid using any Touch Instrument or live instruments like voice or guitar. You can use Remix FX to perform DJ-style effects such as filters, repeaters, and vinyl scratching while tapping record to capture your Live Loop performance.

Another exciting feature of GarageBand is Drummer for iOS. This feature allows you to add a virtual session Drummer who takes direction and plays realistic grooves. You can choose from nine acoustic or electronic drummers with each character providing their own sound while creating over one million realistic grooves and fills.

The Alchemy Synth is another fantastic addition to GarageBand's arsenal of tools. It comes with over 150 synth patches that allow you to play and record using the new Alchemy Touch Instrument while swiping on the Transform Pad to morph any patch's sound easily.

GarageBand also lets users recreate legendary guitar or bass rigs using virtual amps & stompboxes while playing musical instruments on the innovative Multi-Touch keyboard. The Audio Recorder allows users always capture any sound they want then apply studio-class effects such as pitch correction distortion delay among others.

Smart Instruments are another great addition in Garageband which allows users play an entire string orchestra using Smart Strings. Perform with Chord Strips and autoplay using any keyboard instrument. Groove with a variety of Smart Basses using upright, electric, and synth sounds. Strum chords or trigger autoplay patterns on an acoustic and electric Smart Guitar.

GarageBand allows users to record, arrange and mix their song with up to 32 tracks using Touch Instruments, audio recordings, and loops. Record multiple times over any song section and choose your favorite using Multi-Take Recording while trimming musical regions exactly where you want them to play.

Users can also automate the volume and record the movement of controls on Touch Instruments while adding comments or lyric ideas to their songs with an integrated notepad.

GarageBand offers a mobile version of Apple's powerful iWork music creation tool, with only a handful of drawbacks to what is otherwise a powerful, intuitive tool. More powerful than many beginner tools but not nearly as powerful as some of the most robust tools on the market, GarageBand is a perfect entry-level tool for someone interested in multi-track recording or digital composition on a mobile device.

GarageBand offers numerous options when first starting. From keyboards to drums, to sampling and a number of presets that make it easy to create fun effects without having to play with the controls too much, GarageBand has a lot to play with. It operates only in landscape mode and some tools are better on the Mac--especially the keyboard interface--but many options like the amplifier option, recording tools, and samplers are very well crafted and perfectly easy to use, even for those with no experience creating music. Multitrack recording is another very useful tool here, and despite the resources this app must demand, it ran smoothly in every test we developed for it, from an eight track recording to multiple voice inputs and three- to five-minute audio recordings being edited onscreen.

GarageBand is one of those rare apps that can be useful for almost anyone interested in recording. Whether you are interviewing someone for your podcast or are playing with Smart Drums while connected by Bluetooth to three other iPad or iPhone users, this app never ceases to amaze. This is one of Apple's better iWork apps for the iOS platform.
