    OK. Please help me, please! I am about to buy an ipad.... 1 or 2 i haven't decided. Here's the question:

    Can I import Garageband files created on a macbook pro onto the ipad and edit them, add vocals to them, etc..?

    Can I export from the ipad to a macbook?

    Also, if the answer is no to the above, is there a hack, or workaround, or jailbreak thingy that can do this?

    If the answer is all no, then I have to go buy an air again. booo.

    This question is time sensitive? :confused:

    These are you only export options:

    Email or iTunes (as a .mp4 or .band file), but the Desktop version and iPad version do not communicate with each other, the Desktop version requires and updated version of Garageband (mine is up-to date), the same applies for Importing.

    I AM SAVED!!!!!!!!!! no apple butter for me. I am truly disappointed though- i wanted the cool factor of an ipad, but now will have to settle for the more expensive, "normal" MBA 11.6". Drats!

    you'll eventually get the functionality, just not yet. personally I'd still get an iPad 2 and deal with it for a few months til the upgrade. and I bet there'll be a jailbreak workaround soon

    If you're able to access the file system via jailbreak (and I use CyberDuck), then you can see if the project file before export might be in the same format and you can SSH it off.

    It wasn't "Apple Butter" it was "Almond Butter".


    Just trying to keep the facts straight.

    Yet more evidence that this device needs a productivity sub-set forum and that the search feature on just about any VBulletin site is flat out lousy..

    I swear, if no one on the forum can tell me if my underwear is yellow or white in the next 30 mins, I am NOT going to take a shower. Just because!

    Surely Apple Butter is the healthier choice.

    Well, IMO, the problem with having a subforum dedicated to "productivity," would be that there would be little agreement on what constitutes "productivity." Just look at all the threads we have on whether iPad is suitable for "real work" or not, and I think all the discussions end up being about what exactly is "work."
