GarageBand for MacOS

GarageBand for Mac OS
GarageBand is an application designed by the Apple Inc. for their MacOS and iOS. It is a digital audio workstation (DAW) which allows you to create music or postcards. GarageBand is a part of iLife software suite. It's music and podcast creation system enables you to create multiple tracks, loops, an array of various instrumental effects, and voice recordings.


Features :

GarageBand is a music sequencer that can record and playback multiple tracks of audio. Built-in audio filters that use the AU (audio unit). It allows you to enhance the audio track with various effects, including reverb, echo, and distortion amongst others. As we know audio has two bits one is 16bit and another one is 24bit.So, GarageBand allows you to record both 16bit and 24bit audio. with a sample rate of 44.1 kHz.

Well, GarageBand has a ton of features and if we discuss all it can take a lot of time to read so, here are some Quick points :

* It has virtual software instrument
* It has Guitar
* It can edit MIDI. I.e, MIDI editing
* It has music lessons
* It has audio loops
* Jam packs etc.
This app can support any music format, including AIFF, WAV, and MIDI. The app can export songs to MP3, MP4 or AIFF format.
Support for 8-bits audio files was dropped in version 10.

Limitations :

There is also only limits on GarageBand; support for messages sent from MIDI keyboards, as only real-time pitch bend, modulation, sustain, and foot control is recognizable. GarageBand has no functions for changing time signature mid-song though the software does now allow a tempo track to automate tempo changes. However, since GarageBand other parameters affected by MIDI knobs can be automated later, per-track.
The ability to reverse tracks is also not available which is a kinda bad thing.
Other than pitch bend, GarageBand is limited to the pitches and intervals of standard 12-tone equal temperament, so it does not natively support xenharmonic music. Logic Pro supports many different tunings. GarageBand does not support different tunings, however, audio units which support micro tuning (using .scl or .tun files, or some other method) can be employed in GarageBand to produce alternative pitches.
Before GarageBand 10, there was no MIDI export option, and the only option was to save files as .band or export to iTunes.
