Apple’s GarageBand Gains Alchemy Synthesizer

Posted by at 10:28 am on January 18, 2017

Apple today announced a major update to GarageBand, its music creating and recording app for iOS devices.

Chiefly, GarageBand now includes the Alchemy synthesizer, which adds more than 150 new patches from Apple that span myriad styles like pop, rock, EDM, and hip hop. Apple says Alchemy’s on-screen tools let musicians merge up to eight patches at a time to create their own, unique sounds.

GarageBand includes a new sound browser, too, which should make it easier to find Apple’s Touch Instruments. A multi-take recording tool makes it possible for people to record several takes and then compare them to see which is best.

Last, the audio recorder has been redesigned with one-tap vocal effects, such as pitch correction, distortion, and delay. Singers can take advantage of visual equalizers to fine-tune their sound, as well as use third-party plugins for even more vocal sound options.

GarageBand is free for most modern iPhone and iPad owners
