Apple Updates GarageBand with Free Artist Lessons and 1000 New Loops

Today, Apple has released an update to GarageBand (version 10.3), introducing new loops, sound effects, and more freebies.

The new update features 1,000 new electronic and urban loops, two new Drummers with Roots and Jazz-influenced brush styles, as well as Guzheng, Koto and Taiko drums for playing traditional Chinese and Japanese music. Apple has also added 400 animal, machine, and voice sound effects and five Vintage Mellotron patches.

Additionally, the company has included new free Artist Lessons that are designed to teach users how to play popular songs on piano and guitar. The lessons are taught by the artists that actually made the songs famous.

GarageBand is available as a free download from the App Store (for iOS and Mac). The app requires any device running iOS 11 or later and contains no in-app purchases.
