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.
Welcome to the school of rock. And blues. And classical.
Get started with a great collection of built‑in lessons for piano and guitar. You can even get instant feedback on your playing to help hone your skills.
With or without an instrument.
Start making professional‑sounding music right away. 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, trunk‑bumping loops. You can even create astonishingly human‑sounding drum tracks.
Meet your session drummer.
GarageBand now features Drummer, a virtual session player created using some of the industry’s top session drummers and recording engineers. If you’re just playing around to have fun with music, Drummer will make it a lot more fun. And if you’re a songwriter or guitarist who doesn’t play drums — or in a band without a drummer — you are about to be very happy.
Each drummer has a custom kit, delivers his or her own signature sound, and takes your direction. You control everything from the groove to the drums they play using easy visual controls. Select any drummer below to preview his or her distinct style in the rock, alternative, songwriter, or R&B genre.
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.
