GarageBand for iOS.

The world is your stage. This is your instrument.

GarageBand for iOS is the most popular music creation app in the world. And now, more than ever, it’s easy to see why. A wide range of instruments at your command and new features like Live Loops and Drummer make creating your own songs even more exciting. And you can do it all straight from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch — so it’s easy to create incredible beats no matter where you are. Then share them, across the room or across the globe, with just a few taps.

Play music.

With or without an instrument.

The moment you launch GarageBand, you can start making music. Live Loops is a great new way to create electronic music and more.1 Drummer for iOS gives you beats in a variety of musical styles, instantly. And our collection of stunningly realistic Touch Instruments, guitar amps and stompbox effects makes it easy for anyone from total beginners to seasoned pros to play music at any time, anywhere.


Introducing Live Loops. Make music like a DJ.

Live Loops makes it fun and easy to create electronic music, no turntables or specialised hardware required. Simply tap cells and columns in the grid to trigger musical loops, and then build your own original arrangements and combinations of sounds. You can even use Remix FX to add creative, DJ-style transitions with Multi-Touch gestures, or just by tilting or moving around your iOS device. It’s an entirely new way to make music.

Drummer for iOS. Bring in a beatmaker.

Drummer makes its iOS debut with nine virtual session drummers, each representing a popular electronic or acoustic style. Each drummer provides a dazzling array of nuanced, incredibly realistic-sounding beats with a signature style. Drummers can even follow your lead by listening to a riff and coming up with the perfect complementary beat. And simple controls let you fine-tune a drummer’s performance until it sounds exactly the way you want.

All kinds of instruments. All right here.

GarageBand comes with amazingly realistic Touch Instruments built in. Or you can plug in — and amp up — your own instruments. You can even record other music apps into GarageBand or jam with friends on their iOS devices. It’s all right there at your fingertips.

Record. Arrange. Mix.

A full recording studio. To go.

With its powerful and intuitive interface, GarageBand makes it easy to capture your performance, fine-tune it and mix it down to a finished song. Build your songs with up to 32 tracks using Touch Instruments, audio recordings or loops. And edit single notes or entire song sections simply by dragging them where you want. For the ultimate iOS music experience, open GarageBand on the new iPad Pro or iPhone 6s to discover even more possibilities.

Crank up your GarageBand experience with iPad Pro and iPhone 6s.

GarageBand on iPad Pro gives you more room to play. For example, the keyboard displays nearly three octaves. Guitar players will love how the guitar neck has more playable frets — one full octave per string. The Live Loops grid displays nearly twice as many cells on iPad Pro as on other iPad models, and you can see cells and a Touch Instrument on screen at the same time — so laying down tracks is even faster and easier.

iPhone 6s offers new musical possibilities too. With 3D Touch, you can hold down keys on the keyboard to create a sweet-sounding effect known as ‘polyphonic aftertouch’.5 On iPhone 6s, Remix FX also delivers a retro, ’80s-inspired Tape Stop effect with a press of the XY pad. Making music is always fun. With iPad Pro and iPhone 6s, it’s even more fun.
