Apple has announced a new update for Garageband iOS and iPadOS that includes sound packs, template sessions and music-making tutorials from artists like Boys Noize, Tom Misch and TRAKGIRL. Alongside the sound packs, Apple is also adding new ‘Art of the Remix’ templates with Dua Lipa and Lady Gaga, which let users open Garageband sessions full of stems from each artist with step-by-step “remix instructions”.
Apple is also releasing a new mini-documentary ‘Watch the Sound With Mark Ronson’, “Oscar- and Grammy Award-winning producer-artist Mark Ronson explores the intersection of technology and musical innovation”. The docuseries comes with a Producer Pack or Ronson’s sounds, so users can mix along with the videos.
Apple has also added short videos from each producer with “words of encouragement” for new producers and music makers. It's a direct response to Splice's growth in the recent past, who recently added tutorials to their sample subscription service.
The sound packs and templates are a free download as part of Garageband iOS and iPad OS 2.3.11. Find out more here.
