    It looks awesome. I am hoping it works with the original iPad.

    Yeah, this will be the make or break decision for me. If Garageband can run (decently) on the original Ipad, then I'll be content with my current one. But if it's not, I'll be more than happy to upgrade.

    Hey, for my band's upcoming mobile studio, it beats buying a Macbook Pro, right? :p

    Indeed this is awesome news - although how will hooking up a live instrument like a guitar work? Is there a input port?

    I have used iSequence on the iPad - like it a lot - very handy to try out things and actually have produced satisfactory sound (for the effort, and for my "talent" level ;-) )

    I was sure I would hold onto my original iPad, and couldn't think what Apple would throw into the iPad 2 to make me want to upgrade. If GarageBand is only for the 2 that would make me seriously consider it. I'd probably still wait another year to upgrade, but be a little annoyed.

    Interesting - but $90 bucks to use a $5 buck GarageBand - interesting :)

    Wonder what you lose with iPad 1 vs 2...

    I'm close to MBPing it finally for some Apogee Hardware...maybe time to upgrade the iPad if GarageBand works better or has more features with the new iPad.

    How about MIDI instruments? Does it support USB-MIDI instruments through iPad Camera Connection Kit?

    may not be as good as Garageband for mac (for effects / reverb), but pretty sure it comes with basic reverb etc.

    you may need an external USB hub to connect decent mics like Blue Yeti.

    These things are pretty obvious.

    Dual core processing, and double the RAM are included in the iPad 2 - wouldn't be too much of a stretch to say that there might be some lag. In my opinion I don't really know why anyone is excited for a dumbed down version of a dumbed down recording utility.

    For anyone who gets garage band and has an iRig device to plug your guitar into your ipad, tell me if it works. I'm at work all day and won't be able to try my iRig with it until tonight. Thanks.

    iRig, Midi

    Quick test. iRig works as does a Akai LPK25 USB keyboard. Yes!

    Been using it for a while, and it is just fantastic. It is feature filled and fun! Easy to use, stunning interface. When splitting regions, you drag scissors down a track, pinch to zoom etc....

    There is even a really good quantizing feature also.

    A fantastic application! Much recommended.
