• Update for GarageBand for iOS Provides Support for Audiobus

    Apple recently released version 1.4 of GarageBand for iOS bringing a few enhancements to the mobile music production app, the most notable of which being support for third party app Audiobus. With the additional support, GarageBand can record audio piped in from standalone apps supported by Audiobus standard. Audiobus is a third-party iOS app that touts “app-to-app” streaming of compatible digital instruments like synthesizers and drum kits to other editing apps.

    The compatibility will be an added bonus to many music makers that seem to have invested in the Audiobus platform and want to use GarageBand’s flavor of multi-track recording. In recent memory, Apple hasn’t allowed such third-party integration with its mobile offerings. Along with Audiobus support, Wednesday’s update also brings the option to turn off grid snapping and fixes a feedback issue that occurred when a third-party accessory was plugged into an iOS device’s headphone jack.

    The release notes state the following:

    • Play and record music apps supported by Audiobus directly into GarageBand*
    • Turn off grid snapping to get finer control over region and note editing
    • Fixes an issue that resulted in feedback while connecting 3rd-party audio accessories into the headphone/microphone jack
    • Requires iPhone 4S, iPod touch (5th generation), iPad 2 or later. Audiobus requires a separate purchase.
    The latest iteration of GarageBand (version 1.4) weighs in at 588 MB and is available to download from the App Store for $4.99. Audiobus is a 3.9 MB download which comes priced at $9.99.

      As someone that produces music, this is awsome for those creative enogh to utilized all this. I would also reccen Nano Studio and iMaschine.They have some nice drums and If you know what you're doing and looking for some drums for your regular DAW, you can get those drum samples and import them into Logic using the EXS24 sampler. If they're royalty free, I don't see any wrong doing.
