Well this is a surprise and probably what a lot of people have been hoping for, for quite a long time. I think it’s time to look at GarageBand again. Here’s all the details:

  • Play and record using the new Alchemy Touch Instrument with over 150 synth patches*
  • Quickly find Touch Instruments and patches with a redesigned sound browser
  • Capture your voice or instrument and apply studio-class effects like pitch correction, distortion and delay with the new Audio Recorder
  • Use new mixing effects, including Visual EQ, Bitcrusher, and Overdrive
  • Add third-party effects using Audio Unit Extensions**
  • Record multiple times over any song section and choose your favorite using Multi-Take Recording
  • Perform with Chord Strips from any keyboard instrument
  • Add comments or lyric ideas to your song with an integrated notepad
  • Remotely add new tracks to your Logic Pro X project from your iPhone or iPad via iCloud
  • Stability improvements and bug fixes

* The Alchemy synth is available on iPhone 6 or later, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 4.
** Requires compatible third-party Audio Unit Extension instruments apps from the App Store.

  1. Yes, Alchemy is back. But my first impression is, that the standalone version delivered more interesting sounds. But that’s only the FIRST impression.
