The moment feared by developers with apps for recording, producing, and composiong music on the iPhone and iPod Touch has arrived. On Tuesday, Apple announced that its top-notch GarageBand software is now available for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
GarageBand started as a Mac App in 2004 after Apple acquired Emagic/Logic Audio, then found its way onto the iPad in March of 2011, before arriving on Apple’s smallest hardware platforms. The new universal iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch version costs just $5, which would buy you a few microseconds of time at the average recording studio.
In addition to adding support for the iPhone and iPod Touch, the new version 1.1 adds the ability to create custom chords for your smart instruments and added supports for the waltzing time signatures, 3/4 and 6/8.
We can’t wait for someone to tell us about the first song or album to be recorded with this app; if you’re working on that, please let us know, and we’ll probably include your song in this post.
