GarageBand is a fully equipped music creation studio that is an included as part of the iLife suite of programs that come with every Mac desktop and laptop computer. It has a complete sound library that includes instruments, presets for guitar and voice, and an incredible selection of session drummers and percussionists. With Touch Bar features for MacBook Pro and an intuitive, modern design, it’s easy to learn, play, record, create, and share your hits worldwide.
Like most Apple products, GarageBand only works with other apple products. Though it lacks the real time collaboration possibilities of a cloud based app, you can work on your GarageBand products using iCloud on your iPhone or iPad.
Though more robust than soundtrap as far as having more control over editing and recording parameters, it does lack the real time collaboration capabilities of soundtrap. GarageBand is a great next step up for the intermediate level music tech student.
