A string of reference links isn't an article, particularly when they don't say anything one couldn't just write. better writing, more details about the software and that last sentence verges on meaningless (references or no). I'll come back to this later - David Gerard 19:47, Jan 20, 2004 (UTC)

My comment on Garageband
You can change the tempo and pitch of the music... where it says the tempo (120 default, next to the BPM) you can click on the small # and move the slider up and down, if you raise the bar, the music speeds up, thus you have raised the tempo. Changing the pitch is harder to explain, so fool around with the options in each individual track...
Tempo and key signature
The article says that key signature and tempo cannot be changed within a song. This is not true; you need to click the Track Info button (marked with an ), click on Master Track, and the options for key and tempo will be there. Mattderojas 00:53, 6 June 2006 (UTC)
What it means is that it cannot start at one tempo/key and become another as the song progresses, i.e. you can do it in A, then change your mind and put it in B, but you can't have it change to this midsong. Powrtoch 05:58, 23 September 2006 (UTC)
Anyway, I took out the blip about only being able to import entire songs from a CD, as I personally have imported songs stored on my hard drive. Powrtoch 05:58, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

Garage Band for PC
Is there anything like this software for PC users.
Not to my knowledge and the Apple website describes it as unique.
P.S. if there WAS anything like that for PC's it wold be awfully expensive.Binglebongle2000 19:15, 19 May 2007 (UTC)
There are literally dozens of programs like this for PC. My personal favorite is FL Studio. There is Reason, Acid Pro, and so many others. Just look up DAW - digital audio workstation here. The program may be unique to Mac, but certainly not in the entire realm of computing. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 22:27, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
Under "External links", there currently is this here:
Is that legit, or did someone smuggle in a scam site or a site linking to a scame site (/review-qfqlcas+yfqlraqv/popular/garageband-6-0-5-for-windows/), respectively?---126.96.36.199 (talk) 15:56, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
I have reorganized the article, adding section headings and moving content araound to better reflect the structure. Very little content was changed/added/deleted; what was was minor. I hope this is an improvement. Baccyak4H 16:59, 13 November 2006 (UTC)
Was GarageBand going to be a Emagic release prior to acquisition by Apple, or was it developed specifically for iLife. And is Emagic still an entity, now owned by Apple, or has Apple completely taken over Logic/Garageband coding?
Just out of curiosity, is there a program similar to GarageBand for Linux?
Is it legal to sell music you produced on GarageBand? What if you used prerecorded loops?
I think...but probably not without Apple's consent and it would probably get sold on iTunes. You can publish podcasts that you make with GarageBand on iTunes free of charge, however.Binglebongle2000 19:13, 19 May 2007 (UTC)
Ok, I know now. After you make a song you can click "submit to iTunes". But I don't know that much more about it. Binglebongle2000 13:05, 26 May 2007 (UTC)
Logic Express Error
The page on GarageBand says that Logic Express - The "light" version of Logic Pro, intermediate in features between GarageBand and Logic Pro.
This is not correct. Logic Express is the same program as Logic Pro with some of the features turned off or missing.
I am not sure of the best way to say this. Robert Elliott 19:33, 2 June 2007 (UTC)
Jam Packs edit
I'm removing the second half of a sentence in this section
There was also another GarageBand Jam Pack 1 that was discontinued early on; the instruments were probably put into the other Jam Packs.
The part of the sentence after the semicolon is speculative and I doubt there would be any source stating that certain instruments were moved to other Packs. Rajrajmarley 00:29, 18 August 2007 (UTC)
Copyright status of loops/samples?
I'd personally love to know if GarageBand's loops and samples are restricted in some manner, or royalty free, as many restrictions would make the inbuilt samples pretty much useless for commercial music... Although, many people (including people on this talk page) have mentioned "(Notable Musician) uses a GarageBand loop". Xmoogle (talk) 00:03, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
Fall out boy creat song songs on it
Fort Minor produced their whole album on it aswell, this should be added to the wiki
Is there any existing Windows equivalent to GarageBand? you're not colorblind, it's colored this way. Or maybe you are. Misteryoshi 16:39, 3 August 2008 (UTC)
There are a lot. Check out Digital audio editor for a list of specific programs. My personal favorite is FL Studio. Acid Pro is less flexible and probably more like GarageBand. Also check out Multitrack_recording and Digital audio workstation. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 22:31, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
Only available with iLife?
I think this is misleading. Currently, yes, it is true, but previously it was included software, wasn't it? - Dudesleeper / 10:48, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
Audio Sample rate
Garageband records and exports audio with the sample rate of 44.1khz, and it can't be changed. Bit depth can be changed from 16 bit to 24 bits, though. This needs to be mentioned in the audio section.

incompatibilities between GarageBand for Mac and GarageBand for iOS
I am new to GarageBand, having just recently downloaded it to my iPad Mini. I am very happy with it, except for one huge problem -- I cannot collaborate with my friend who uses GarageBand on a Mac. He can import GB files I create on iOS, but I cannot import GB files he creates on his Mac. I have been googling the issue, and it appears that GB *used* to be able to share files between Mac and iOS, but with the latest versions, that functionality has been disabled? Is this intentional on Apple's part -- I can imagine they got worried about iPad sales cannibalizing MacBook sales -- or are there some technical aspects that drove this decision? Why wouldn't Apple have a function in GB for Mac to save a project in "iOS format" for sharing with iPad users?
