GarageBand 4, also known as GarageBand '08, is part of iLife '08. It incorporates the ability to record sections of a song separately, such as bridges, and chorus lines. Additionally, it provides support for the automation of tempos and instruments, the creation, and exportation of iPhone ringtones, and a "Magic GarageBand" feature which includes a virtual jam session with a complete 3D view of the Electric instruments.
In addition to launching a new iOS version of iPhoto last week, Apple also updated GarageBand and iMovie. iMovie 1.3 merely brought the auto-generated "trailers" feature from the desktop, but GarageBand 1.2 saw some serious feature additions, including the ability to edit individual MIDI notes, a new "Smart Strings" instrument, and the ability for iOS devices to have a virtual "jam session" over Bluetooth.
A small note icon with wireless radio "waves" now rests on the top toolbar. Tapping this button will allow one device to start up a session. The other devices can tap this button to join in. The "band leader" device controls playback, key, tempo, etc.
We tested a quick jam session in action using an iPhone 4 and an iPad 2, and it performed flawlessly. We think this feature will really be a boon to bands demoing songs during the songwriting process, during practice, or even for recording a full album. GarageBand tracks from iOS devices can be imported on the desktop to GarageBand or Logic for further recording, editing, or mixing, so a jam session could easily end up as part of a finished recording. We also think the feature could be a lot of fun for music-minded friends, even just for goofing off.
Hello, great website! I have a 10 inch ipad pro, It has garageband. how do I find out what version of garageband that is? Also, what is the best audio interface with at least 2 inputs, for the version of garageband that I have?
Your review was written too soon. You may want to fool around with this app a little more. You will find that you can record more then just eight bars of musical time and you can even perform a midi instrument without having to keep in perfect time or have garageband correct your mistakes if you so choose to. It's a wonderful app

Public jam sessions are open to anyone and are a fun way to jam with other musicians. But sometimes you want to play more seriously with bandmates or friends. With jammr you can create private jam sessions and only invite your friends, too.Listen to and share your jamsJams are automatically recorded so you can listen to or share them with your friends. It's also possible to download individual instrument tracks for remixing.
iRig MIDI 2 is small, but it can be made even smaller when all of its cables are detached. Because of its Mini-DIN connector, you can remove all cables for extreme portability: Now you have something that you can easily carry with you in your pocket to any gig, performance, studio or jam session. In addition, all iRig MIDI 2 cables are bumper friendly, which means you can connect and start jamming without having to remove your mobile device's protective carrying case.
Hi there! Does anyone else have this problem? I imported a master quality backing track into my session and the quality is absolutely useless! Otherwise all the live audio tracks from vocals and guitars are fine. Until now I had a great response from support, but for some reason they don't want to touch this issue. Hope someone can help. Otherwise I will sadly have to forget about Jamkazam.
I wonder if anyone has had that problem? I imported a master quality backing track into the session and it's distorting. Can't use it. Big disappointment. All the other instruments and voices in the session are fine.
Hello Forum! I'm a newbie trying to run my first session with my music partner. I was able to monitor my mic and guitar channel thru my headphones in Jamkazam earlier today. But not anymore. No signal. I didn't change anything. Can anyone imagine where the problem is? I attached a screenshot. If you can help please respond at firstname.lastname@example.org thanks, Rick
To start, here is what I'm working with: Win 11, very capable PC, sufficient internet, Soundcraft Signature 16 mixer/interface with drivers installed.Here are my settings when configured: Audio input is Soundcraft USB Audio ASIO, Audio Output same as deviceSample rate set to match, which is 48000hz, Frame size 2 seems to be the clearest with 4.83ms latency and I/O rate 500, var 0.23(both green)Advance to set 5 to play test sound and there is a slight buzz or static at the end of the playback but the rest is clear(worse on any other frame size. I have had it completely clear before)After completing setup and moving into a test session my audio is working and all in the green(vocals not as clean and clear as i have heard before, but working. Some tweeking is needed somewhere else still but maybe clear up when other issues get resolved)If I use Audio Input Line WDM, and Output speakers WDM, Sample rate match, Frame size 5(low as i can go without terrible sound), latency is 10ms, I/O rate 200 Var 0(all green), I have the same test session results. When i close the program and open again, i dont get the same error messages but there is crazy echo in my vocals and my latency and frame size have increased to 40msWhen I first started using this mixer/interface with JKZ, it was working fine. Now every time I open it to use, I have to setup my audio gear each time because i get 2 error messages saying no audio configuration and high latency. The only way is to start over and add my gear in again fresh for it to work.What am i missing?What do i try next?Is this a driver issue?Do I use WDM or ASIO input?Do I download and use ASIO4All instead of my interface driver?HELP!
In addition to the JamKazam built-in quickstart session types, it would be nice to have custom templates to start a session right away, such as specifying all the session parameters: Genre, name, description, access: open or by RSVP, notation files, etc. So we could define our own session types, like this:Rock Session / "Classic Rock all night..." / open / Jazz Session / "Real book Jazz" / RSVP / Friends follow musician access / Notation files
With GarageBand, kids can record and layer up to eight tracks of loops, instruments, and vocals to create original songs and soundscapes. The app has several standout features: pre-recorded loops and drum grooves; a collection of virtual Smart Instruments with pre-programmed chord progressions, scales, and rhythmic riffs; music editing and production tools; and sharing features that can post songs, pair devices for a virtual jam session, and customize ring and text tones. Players can record vocals, live instruments, or ambient sounds using the in-app microphone. They can also connect an external microphone and plug a guitar into their iOS devices using specialized adapters for pro-quality live recording in GarageBand.
To do this, hover your mouse over the volume icon on any of the audio tracks. You'll see a slider with meter lights on the sides. Pull the slider in the JamKazam app up to make the track louder in the mix, or pull the slider down to make the track softer in the mix. Don't worry, as these changes only affect what you hear - they don't change what others in your sessions hear.
Also, please note that your personal mix is the mix that will be used for any recordings that you personally make in the session and also for any broadcast that you personally send from your computer to YouTube, Facebook, etc. If another musician in your session makes a recording or broadcasts your session, that musician's personal mix is the mix that will be used.
In this Recorded Audio section, you can open recordings you've made in JamKazam sessions, JamTracks (multi-track recordings of popular songs) you've purchased from JamKazam, or audio files (i.e. simple backing tracks). You can also start a metronome that everyone in the session will hear.
