Apple has updated GarageBand on the Mac, which provides a range of new tools aimed primarily at electronic dance music creators.
According to the Techcrunch.com, the update offers an expansion of GarageBand’s Drummer tool, adding 10 new EDM and 10 new Hip Hop virtual drummers to the existing crop of acoustic ‘players.’
In addition, there is a new ‘Transform Pad Smart Control,’ which is a virtual input tool that allows the user to shape the sound they are creating in real-time. With an interface divided into eight sections, the users can drag their cursor across to change the sound they are creating.
The update also adds support for Apple’s Force Touch trackpad. It now allows the users to vary the strength of some tools based on pressure changes from their presses on the trackpad on the new MacBook and the latest Retina MacBook Pro models.
Also, the new version of GarageBand on iOS allows for direct sharing to Apple Music Connect for artists who have enabled their account there.
This latest update is free for all existing users. The new users can get it for USD 4.99 from the Mac App Store.
