Apple’s GarageBand has added new Sound Packs from 10 top artists and producers.
New GarageBand Remix Sessions
Users can now learn remixing within the app via two Remix Sessions offering step-by-step video instruction and featuring hit songs from Dua Lipa and Lady Gaga.
“GarageBand is my idea bank and where I start my songwriting, so I’m excited to make my song ‘Free Woman’ available as a Remix Session,:” said Lady Gaga said about the launch. “I want musicians and music lovers to be able to see how a song is produced and be able to hear all the individual parts, and then put their own creative color on it, doing whatever they want in GarageBand.”
New Producer Packs
There are also seven new Producer Packs full of beats, loops, and instruments create for GarageBand by producers including Boys Noize, Mark Lettieri, Oak Felder, Soulection, Take A Daytrip, Tom Misch, and TRAKGIRL.
“Whenever someone asks me how to start producing and making beats, I tell them to grab their iPhone and open up GarageBand.,” said Oak Felder, producer for Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, and John Legend. “It removes all the technical obstacles and makes it easy to turn a simple musical idea into something great. I still use GarageBand to sketch out ideas, so it’s especially cool to be able to deliver my own selection of royalty-free sounds to help someone else write their own hit song.”
An additional Producer Pack offers a companion to the new Apple TV= Original docuseries “Watch the Sound With Mark Ronson,” premiering Friday, July 30. Viewers can experiment with sounds inspired by the music on the show.
“GarageBand continues to be a catalyst for music creation — making it easy for novices to get started and for seasoned pros to develop their ideas on the go,” said Bob Borchers, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “For this update, we’ve collaborated with an incredible group of artists and producers to give musicians an amazing collection of new sounds to play with, and we hope even more people will be inspired to tap into their creativity and start making music in GarageBand.”
