Madmeur. February 17, 2021 at 12:40:37 # Very very much missing:
– effect automations
– disable / enable midi device in the settings (to play on 2 devices in the background, in different applications)
– learning midi for devices (put twists and, for example, put drums on pads), there is no channel selection for midi
Docake. December 13, 2020 at 13:48:26 # over the past year and a half, everything goes exclusively towards the bottom. it became dumb to hope for the garage: he likes to crash from any sneeze, without doing autosaves, he can lose the last couple of hours of work at the same time. even more dumb. tends to drop DURING FILE SAVING, which is for any direction. just barbarism.
during the megre operation, it often takes off at the last stage. normalization.
At the same time, everyone loads the device to throttling. tougher than any of the competitors. nTrack, Korg Gadget, FL Mobile. who have enough brain and skills in such situations to teach the software to slow down the operation of the operation being performed in order to avoid crashes due to overheating. and this is software for hardware of its own production. I put out the light, by God. such jambs look very, very shameful. not to mention how much material was lost by such unexpected Bones bugs, and with it, their own nerves.
especially gourmet bottom. a couple of projects over the past year, of course, at the stage of “almost completed” have become broken and undiscovered in any way. even by importing to logic on a Mac. and this theme has been periodically shown in a mobile garage for at least five years (!), at least. With the release of updates, you hope that it is impossible for the development team to be such gouges, for sure they have already ruled out so shameless and imbecile, in addition, absolutely heartless bugs, have been fixed. After all, we are talking about (!) material (!), a product of human inspiration and an impulse of the soul, and its safety, if these loud and funny words say anything to developers at all. guess what ?! not a damn thing.
if for some reason one or another project you start to give in the garage. you sweat and shake all the time until you finish, because any file, even with the recording of two tracks of vocal takes. risks being beaten at the most unexpected moment.
honestly, for everything that I have experienced in total with this software. if I met the people responsible for its development live. would spit in my face without first brushing my teeth. no matter how disgusting it may sound and characterize me as a person. because there is a limit to the shameless bugs of this software. no, in principle, and it is simply impossible to predict any of its devilish manifestations. will hit the cabbage soup from the most unexpected side. it is inhuman. therefore I do not consider it necessary to be a human in response.
of course, almost all the processes have already been translated into other mobile solutions, each of which is more reliable, but recently, at my own peril and risk, I decided to dig into a project with long-recorded guitar takes in the amount of 4 tracks. if I knew what hell I doomed myself to and how many operations I would have to do 3-4 times due to unexpected departures without saving or DURING SAVINGS, damn you. now I know. and in this session there were as many of them as never before. and this is with a relative minimum of processing of the tracks themselves. testifies to the complete degradation of this development project. two years ago it was possible to use all 32 declared tracks in half with grief, now it is possible to reach this point only if, having died a couple of times on the way.

Haric 110. January 22, 2020 at 15:54:34 # The GarageBand application is developed to such a level that it can almost replace musical instruments by providing its virtual instruments based on physical modeling. But as I noticed in the process of long-term work with it, the keyboard of the keyboards even on the iPad does not allow you to play something on it, as on the Forte pianos or synthesizers, since there is not enough key length, which makes the hand squeeze when playing. This leads to painful sensations, can lead to injury, and, in principle, is harmful for the musician.
So while the application is not suitable for playing music on it, but it can be used for selecting a melody, playing and entering notes through editing.
I wish in future versions to add the ability to increase the size of the keys in the iPad version by collapsing the top bar (which with or without instrument controllers).
There is also a desire for an arbitrary time signature and the ability to change it in the project, a variable tempo. this will give more freedom for creativity.
Alexkotov. 09 March 2019 at 03:26:37 # I can’t download, namely I click on the icon and then nothing happens. The icon does not appear in the menu, and the loading bar is dead and I can’t even cancel. Also, the application for some reason cannot be found through the search and I had to open the list of all Apple applications. ♂️
Maktry. September 12, 2018 at 17:15:22 # There are no alternatives to this program, the best solution for a musician! Garage Band offers a wide range of features and quality that is completely unavailable on Android. It was she who led me to the Iphone, and showed all the possibilities. Prepare a demo for the studio, record a composition with mixing. easily! In emergency situations, she even helped out live! Huge thanks and respect for the developers!
I smashed the old Iphone, and bought a new one, the choice fell on the Iphone again thanks to this application! Reply
Ashurov isay. 06 August 2018 at 14:45:28 # Everything is great!)
I would really like to be able to edit the note pitch of a vocal track!)
As in Newtone, so as not to re-record the verse, chorus or bridge many times, this will help those who, like me, learn vocals myself, but there is already material to publish it!) Everything is ready, except for the voice, it seems that it is not badly recorded, but there are small roughnesses that you want to remove without rewriting.
And so, in my opinion, Garageband is much better than Fl Studio and other programs of this class!

It turned my life upside down!
I don’t know read this developers or not, but HUGE THANK YOU!

How to Change iPhone Ringtone Easily?

How to make a ringtone in GarageBand for iOS
Minimum time spent and programs used.
Some iPhone owners often think about personalizing their devices. In addition to all kinds of protective covers, the design for the smartphone’s desktop is also selected, and standard melodies are replaced with their own ringtones. Most of the users download ready-made songs, someone purchases suitable files from the iTunes Store.
Expectations are usually met by self-created ringtones. There are many apps for this in the App Store, although everything can be done in standard GarageBand. The whole process will not take even a minute.
Create a ringtone
- In the export menu, select the type of media file “Ringtone”;
- Write down the name of the composition and click “Export”;
- After completing the process, click “Use sound as”;
- Specify what the received ringtone will be used for.
For owners of the iOS version of GarageBand, this method of creating ringtones can be considered the most optimal. There is an important nuance that requires attention: the application does not work with files that are not locally downloaded to the iPhone. Also, the program will not import digitally protected files. The entire Apple Music library turns out to be completely useless in this matter. Otherwise, GarageBand successfully copes with the task of creating new ringtones.

How to make ringtone on iPhone without PC
It’s very simple if you know how to do it.
There are several convenient ways to create and download ringtones on iPhone. But most of them require the use of a computer, which users cannot always afford. How to make a ringtone directly on the iPhone and immediately set it as a ringtone was described in this instruction.
Note that this method of creating ringtones on iPhone without a PC has existed for a very long time. However, not everyone could use it. This is because the GarageBand application, with which we will create a ringtone directly on the iPhone, was previously paid for most users. But for a relatively long time, Apple made it free for absolutely everyone, thanks to which the method described in this manual for creating a ringtone on an iPhone without a PC has become relevant for every user.
Also, before starting, it is necessary to note two disadvantages of this method. First, the GarageBand app weighs 1.44 GB, which is why not all users will be able to keep it installed on the device. And secondly, alas, you cannot cut a ringtone from a song from the Apple Music collection using GarageBand.
How to make ringtone on iPhone without PC
Install the GarageBand app on iPhone and launch it.
Go to the “Audio Recorder” menu by scrolling to it on the main screen of the application.
Click on the button with the image of the layers in the upper left corner (shown in the screenshot below).
Turn off the metronome by pressing the button with its image.
Click on the “” button to the right of the recording track.
In the “Song Section” window that opens, select “Section A” and activate the “Automatic” switch.
Click on the loop icon in the upper right corner of the screen, select the “Music” tab.
Find the song from which you want to make a ringtone, hold it with your finger and drag it to the track on the main screen of the application.
Click on the imported track to enter edit mode.
Change the length of the song by moving the edges of the beginning and end of the track. Please note that the duration of the ringtone should be 30 seconds.
For the most accurate ringtone creation, zoom in the track by stretching it with two fingers.
After the ringtone is created, click on the triangle (or the inscription “My songs”) in the upper left corner. You will be taken to a list of songs you created in GarageBand.
Press and hold on the created ringtone, click “Share” → “Ringtone”, specify the name of the ringtone and complete the operation by clicking “Export”.
Done! Your ringtone has become available for installation in the “Settings”. “Sounds” menu.
How to create iPhone ringtone right on the iPhone itself
With ringtones on the iPhone, everything is pretty bad: you can’t put the songs from the player on the call, the ringtones themselves need to be made on the computer, and even synchronized via the hated iTunes. However, there is one easy way to turn any song in your library into a ringtone or message sound right on your smartphone.
To do this, we need a DRM-free track, that is, not purchased from the iTunes Store, and GarageBand for iOS, which you probably have. And of course, you can’t do without a couple of minutes of free time.
So, open up GarageBand and create a new project.
Choosing any tool to get started.
Switch to track mode by pressing the corresponding button.
Click the plus sign in the upper right corner and get to the section menu.
Here we need to increase the number of ticks. Open section A options by clicking on its line.
By touching the arrow button, we swipe and bring the number of measures, say, up to 60. Click “Finish”.
Now go to the loops menu by clicking on the loop icon.
Make Ringtone For iPhone Using GarageBand. 2020 [Easy Method!]
Switch to the “Music” tab and select a song from which we will make a ringtone.
Hold your finger on the title and drag the track to a separate track.
Reducing the track from the beginning and from the end, adjust the desired fragment and move it to the zero mark.
If the section is longer than 30 seconds, GarageBand will trim it automatically.
Go to “My songs” and, holding your finger on our track, open the “Share” menu.
Select the “Ringtone” option, assign a name to it and click “Export”.
After the export is complete, the ringtone can be immediately set to a call, message, or assigned to a specific contact.
I hope that now you will be able to change ringtones more often and in crowded places the chimes of the standard “Introduction” will not be heard from all sides.
