    i am really interested in garageband on ipad. what features does the mac version have that the ipad doesn't or does it have the same beats, features, everything? also does the ipad version have the "enhanced tuning" or auto tuning that is in the mac version? thank you i hope for some answers!

    I purchased Garage band for the Ipad for my grandson. It seemed like the perfect music teacher. He is almost 3 and loves the interface and "making" music. I would rather he use the IPad then my laptop.

    Not the answer you were looking for, but it is the way we use it.

    The iPad doesn't allow extra AUi or AU plugins, only allows for 8 tracks, and is a bit limited in its effects. However, for $4.99, it's steal. It's a lot of fun, and any project done in it can be brought into the desktop version, or even Logic 9. There are a number of things missing from it, namely the following missing:

    1. Edit MIDI after recording
    2. Edit/Import MIDI for Smart Instruments
    3. Import user-made Apple Loops from GB for OS X
    4. Manually inputting what chords to use for Smart Instruments
    5. Recording overlay (for drums, left hand, then right hand piano)
    6. Key change per section
    7. Display notes on keyboard/fretboard

    But it's a first version. I'm sure it'll get better.
