GarageBand for Mac

Incredible music. In the key of easy.

GarageBand is a whole music creation studio right inside your Mac — with a complete sound library that includes software instruments, presets for guitar and voice, and virtual session drummers. An intuitive interface makes it easy to learn, play, record, create and share your hits worldwide. It’s never been easier to make music like a pro.

Learn to play

Welcome to the school of rock.
And blues. And classical.

Get started with a great collection of built‑in lessons for piano and guitar. Or learn some Multi‑Platinum hits from the actual artists who recorded them. You can even get instant feedback on your playing to help hone your skills.

Make music

With or without an instrument.

Start making professional‑sounding music straightaway. Plug in your guitar or mic and choose from a jaw-dropping array of realistic amps and effects. Or get inspired by the huge collection of all‑new sounds and fresh loops. You can even create astonishingly human-sounding drum tracks.

Record. Mix. Master.

You run the studio.

Tons of helpful recording and editing features make GarageBand as powerful as it is easy to use. Edit your performances right down to the note and decibel. Fix rhythm issues with a click. Finesse your sound with audio effect plug-ins. And finish your track like a pro, with effects such as compression and visual EQ.
