GarageBand for Mac updates with Music Memos & Logic Remote support, bigger sound library

Apple on Thursday released a new version of GarageBand for the Mac, improving support for recent companion apps on iOS, and greatly increasing the number of samples available to musicians.




The updated software —v10.1.1 —can open Music Memos projects, and be controlled by the iPhone and iPad Pro versions of Logic Remote. Similarly, the software should also be better compatible with GarageBand for iOS and Live Loops projects.

The app's sound library, meanwhile, now has over 2,600 more Apple Loops and sound effects. To make it easier to fetch more material, downloads have been made more reliable.

The update also makes several upgrades to Accessibility features, but Apple hasn't specified what these are.

GarageBand requires OS X 10.9 or later. Although it should come pre-installed on recent Macs, with free updates, it can also be downloaded from the Mac App Store for $4.99 if it's missing.
