  • Love the Program but Can't Send Stuff with New Updates

    By TaraGozay
    Try using iMessage rather than email with Mac Catalina. Garageband needs to fix it so they can be sent through email with the new update. Right now I cannot recieve an important file through email!
  • Miserable!

    By Tim_is_not_Steve
    Nothing works with Catalina. Can't even get "About" to open. I switched from PC to Mac because - it always works - except it no longer does.

  • Pitch correction has a slight problem reaching the correct piches

    By Adrian Zano
    When I sing a certain note, it goes towards some flat notes when I'm singing in a major scale. It's bugging me a bit and I want to know if you can fix this. Please, and thank you. (Btw, No pun intended) But overall, I love making music on garageband and mixing my music.

  • Macbook vs Iphone

    By Emunti
    I enjoyed the mobile version better simply because there were more sounds. The mac version is nice but not as many options as the mobile.

  • Finilizing Songs

    By Muisc_Vic
    It wont let me finlize songs or upload them to itunes. I can only listen to what i made through garageband itself. No way of listening to the actula music without opening the app. Would give 5 stars if it weren't for that.
  • (UPDATE) Smart Controls Stopped Working

    By GlennBurchette
    10.3.4 Update: Smart Controls were not fixed at all on my Mojave machine. Still unable to control an instruments controls when selecting a new instrument. After the 10.3.3 update (on Mojave), Smart Controls no longer switch to the correct instrument's controls when choosing a different track with a different instrument. The controls still seem active, but the UI displaying what's going on is frozen to the last selected instrument.
