Kickstart your musical creativity
Get creative inspiration from today’s biggest hitmakers
Meet Boys Noize, Mark Lettieri, Oak Felder, Soulection, Take A Daytrip, Tom Misch, and TRAKGIRL, several of the top music producers behind the latest Sound Packs for GarageBand.
Free Sound Packs make it easier than ever to create original music
Now you can create your own songs using eight new downloadable Sound Packs created for GarageBand and Logic Pro by some of the world’s top producers. Each Producer Pack is bursting with hundreds of royalty-free loops, beats, instruments, drum kits, synth patches, and samples that embody the sound and vibe of each producer. And in-app videos feature each producer offering words of encouragement to aspiring artists, as well as insights into their creative process.
“Whenever someone asks me how to start producing and making beats, I tell them to grab their iPhone and open up GarageBand. It removes all the technical obstacles and makes it easy to turn a simple musical idea into something great. I still use GarageBand to sketch out ideas, so it’s especially cool to be able to deliver my own selection of royalty-free sounds to help someone else write their own hit song.”
—Oak Felder, producer (Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, John Legend)
“We both got our start using GarageBand, met to form Take A Daytrip, and added Logic Pro to our production tools. Our new Producer Pack is a personal collection of signature sounds created from our favorite synths and gear so that we could always have access to them whenever we’re away from our studio. Our goal is always to make technology more accessible for the next generation of producers and artists. Making our own sounds for GarageBand is a perfect way to pay forward the inspiration we got from previous generations of creators.”
—David Biral and Denzel Baptiste, Take A Daytrip, producers (Lil Nas X, Kid Cudi, Travis Scott)
“It’s been an important mission of mine to help young women break into music making, and GarageBand is a powerful creative tool that everyone has access to. I hope my Producer Pack will inspire people globally to embrace their creativity and show that anyone can follow their dreams and get involved in music production.”
—TRAKGIRL, producer (Andra Day, Jhené Aiko, Vic Mensa)
Now the same experience first introduced in GarageBand has arrived in Logic Pro, created by some of the world’s most influential producers. Spark your creativity with Producer Packs and an ever-expanding library of sound.
Experiment with music inspired by “Watch the Sound With Mark Ronson”
In the new Apple Original docuseries “Watch the Sound With Mark Ronson,” Oscar and Grammy Award-winning producer-artist Mark Ronson explores the intersection of technology and music. With the exclusive “Watch the Sound With Mark Ronson” Producer Pack in GarageBand, you can extend your viewing experience by getting hands-on time with GarageBand versions of the music technology featured in every episode, from sampling to drum machines, synths to reverb, and vocal effects to distortion.
“Our new series, ‘Watch the Sound With Mark Ronson,’ explores and celebrates the intersection of music and technology, and it’s exciting to have GarageBand bring the beats and sounds from the show to anyone who’s inspired to create their own songs. This Producer Pack delivers the creativity and excitement of the show in a way I never imagined and couldn’t be more excited about.”
—Mark Ronson, artist and producer (Adele, Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga)
*Watch the Sound With Mark Ronson and Apple TV+ is only available in select regions.
Learn the art of remixing, right within the app
Ramp up your remix skills in GarageBand with two new in-app Remix Sessions featuring Dua Lipa and Lady Gaga. Each session includes inspirational videos from each artist telling the stories behind their hit songs “Break My Heart” (Dua Lipa) and “Free Woman” (Lady Gaga), as well as step-by-step remix instructions led by an Apple Retail Creative Pro using a GarageBand Live Loops version of each song.
“It’s amazing to see Apple bringing my music to life in GarageBand, so now anyone can experience how I made ‘Break My Heart’ no matter where they are. Music has the power to bring people together, and this is doing that in such an exciting way. I personally can’t wait for people to have a lot of fun experimenting and coming up with different versions of my song.”
—Dua Lipa, artist
“GarageBand is my idea bank and where I start my songwriting, so I’m excited to make my song ‘Free Woman’ available as a Remix Session. I want musicians and music lovers to be able to see how a song is produced and be able to hear all the individual parts, and then put their own creative color on it, doing whatever they want in GarageBand.”
—Lady Gaga, artist
