Ahead of tomorrow's launch of the iPad 2, Apple has launched iMovie and GarageBand for the device, the two main apps featured during the iPad 2 launch event last week. Each app costs $4.99.

GarageBand [App Store] is an iPad-only application compatible with both the first- and second-generation models.GarageBand turns your iPad into a collection of Touch Instruments and a full-featured recording studio - so you can make music anywhere you go. Use Multi-Touch gestures to play pianos, organs, guitars, drums, and basses on your iPad. They sound and play like their counterparts, but let you do things you could never do on a real instrument. Enjoy a full range of Smart Instruments that make you sound like a pro - even if you've never played a note before. Plug an electric guitar into your iPad and play through classic amps and stompbox effects. Use the built-in microphone or a guitar to record, or capture any performance. Then mix up to eight tracks to create a song you can share.For U.S. customers, Apple will begin taking orders for the iPad 2 in its online store at 1:00 AM tomorrow, with in-store availability set for 5:00 PM local time.

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.

GarageBand and iMovie are now available in the AppStore!

In the description of iMovie you can read, that it is only for iPad 2. GarageBand should also be for iPad 1. But I'm not 100% sure! :)

It's a universal app but only works on the current lineup of iPhone4, iPad2, and iPod touch 4G. It's a free d/l if you bought the previous version of iMovie for iPhone only.

Cant beat the price. Thats what sets the iPad apart from other tablets. Content. Or should I say polished content.

Because Apple did not add 512 MB in the iPad 1, using this will be difficult. I guess that is why the did not add it to the iPhone 3GS

it's not the RAM since it is compatible with the iPod touch, which supposedly has 256MB. I would bet it just requires the A4 and Apple wanted to limit to devices that are capable of shooting video independently.

Have to download from a PC or Mac

I'll be in line at the Apple Store in St Louis tomorrow to pick up my iPad. As a musician, I'm pretty excited about Garageband being so portable.

Funny... I went on my iPhone4 and selected updates and it doesn't come up even though I own the app and it is on my phone. The updated version shows in the App Store as indicated. Wonder what's up with mine?

it can be universal and still be limited to a device and functionality, just like iMovie before this update was only able to be loaded on an iPhone 4 or a 4th Generation iPod touch.

Netflicks is a Universal app but only does video out on the most current devices.

I hope you'r right, GarageBand looks awesome, but the UK wont get iPad 2 till the end of the month. And I want to play it!

Great! I was hoping it would be a free iMovie update, but I feared not (just because Jobs didn’t mention that).

Time to grab GB, Pages and Numbers in preparation for my first iPad! I’ve already pre-bought a ton of iPad games by waiting for sales on AppShopper and PandoraBox during the past year.

I got the same message, but if you go to the App Store and click Buy, it will notify you that you have previously purchased that app and the you will be getting this update for free and to click "OK" or "Cancel"

no, they are available starting now ($4.99 each) if you would like to own those apps, but they are not part of iOS 4.3 or the new iPad 2.

MIDI Keyboard with iPad

Can anyone with an iPad and Garageband tell me if Garageband for iPad accepts MIDI input from a keyboard? I've been looking around online and on Apple's website and I can't seem to find any references about it. It just seems to mention plugging in a guitar.

it took me all but 10 seconds to download the update just a few minutes ago, check your internet connection. This file is only 69MB and should not take 20+ minutes

It is a free update.

Edit: nvm, Had to click buy again?

Having never purchased an Apple made app before (besides the ones that came with my ipod touch), how often do you think I can expect updates to garage band? Do they update often? Mainly I'd just love to see added instruments, effects, and such.

Yes i know this won't run on my touch, i'm planning on getting an ipad2 (well....probably).
