Overtaking Reasoning Pro
The biggest new addition are the drummer features carried over from the Logic Pro for Mac upgrade back in January. Now, in GarageBand on the Mac, you’ll get 10 brand-new drummers to use with your creations with an emphasis on hip-hop and electronic music.
Apple said in a telephone call this type of music should not be constrained by traditional drum packages and rather thinks of the new drummers as beat producers. This is shown in the UI with pads and other controls that differ from the present drum package designs in GarageBand.
A brand-new UI control called the Transform Pad lets you click and drag out your Mac to new pads, altering the noise and quality of your tones in real time. While tape-recording a track live, you can make these changes to your sounds and your modifications will be captured to the recording. This is likewise true for the knobs and controls on synths– each modification you make while tape-recording will be captured.
More loops and sounds
All told, there are 1,000 brand-new loops with a strong emphasis on hip-hop and electronic dance music (EDM) for Garageband for Android version. However it’s not just about hip hop and EDM; there have been numerous loops added to all genres with brand-new tunes, bass lines, percussion instruments, and many more.

Haptic feedback (like a vibration or click you can feel) makes dials more intuitive by giving you a push when hitting 0 dB on the Track Volume slider, or moving the Track Pan knob past the center position. These are nice touches because you might be used to using real-world mixing boards that have a particular feel while turning dials and knobs and these additions try to give you that physical response you’re utilized to.
