Analysis of GarageBand for iPad
I have to admit that from the first day I was in love with this awesome application named GarageBand and still believe that it is one of the best application of its genre.This app was first available for the Mac and soon the company cashed it into the other platforms of products as people were obsessed with it.May I inform all those who aren’t familiar with this application.GarageBand is a music creation studio and today I want to talk about the iPad version of this electrifying app.
Garageband for iPad is not a complete version of the desktop program but still has a really professional vein, but is an attempted adaptation to adjust some concepts and uses of a “traditional” program to a radically different device.
Garageband for iPad, same performance different experience
While Garageband for Mac OS X, the program included quite some time now in all versions of iLife, born in their day to bring professional experience of use and layout of audio for the user less experienced than just looking for a simple operation.
The result was a program with great ideas that has been growing gradually and increasingly offers more possibilities to user demands, while always maintaining a philosophy of simple and easy use.
Garageband for iOS rather for iPad, born with a design similar name but those are all similar.
This program is intended and designed almost from birth as a fun addition to the user and in rare cases as an editing tool a little more advanced, buts taking into account the limitations of the equipment. The similarities in design and name are all the similarities between the two programs.
The program works in a similar way as do all applications that Apple has released so far for the iPad.Using a carousel application allows us to switch between the different options and tools included. In total we have these options:
- Smart Bass. From the simplest intelligent instruments, does not add much.
- Smart Drums. Fun begins, instruments designed for people who have no idea how an instrument.The result? Impressive, though you may end up a little tired of it all sound alike.
- Sampler. A keyboard but intended for use with sounds, samplers, generated by us.
- Audio Recorder. A comprehensive plan to create a podcast anytime and edit directly from the iPad with a multitude of possibility, as editor would be identical to the traditional version of Gargeband.
- Guitar Amp. One of the most interesting options, thanks to this section can connect our guitar to iPad and convert it into a small amplifier. One of the most striking sections.
- Drums. Includes battery and other options percussion, although it is quite achieved the effect (in each area of ??the instruments sound different) generally gets a bit complicated to use.
- Keyboard. Access to the keyboard interface. Within it includes all the options associated with that instrument.
- Smart Keyboard. The same impression Drums, very interesting and the results are amazing, although it is normal, just touch buttons no idea but it sounds good.
- Smart Guitar. Another “smart” instrument designed to look like artists even without having any idea of the program.
So we talk about a bad app? For anything, it is an amazing application and surprises everyone sees how it works. There is a PC version of GarageBand available that can be downloaded by completing a short survey. The ideas and methods used to integrate it into a touch interface concepts are amazing and worthy of a great development as Apple usually done when launching these applications.
Garageband for iPad is simply a very advance version, or the next step in all these programs keyboards and guitars that existed for the iPad. More developed, with many more options, but basically the same intention: to entertain the inexperienced user .
