GarageBand 10.0.2

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

With the release of GarageBand 10.0.2 [1] for the Mac, Apple has finally brought back the capability to export in MP3 format, a feature missing since last October’s Mavericks-only update (see “New Free iLife and iWork Apps Share across Devices and Platforms [2],” 22 October 2013). It was a bedeviling change that exasperated a great many users (who voiced their frustrations on Apple’s Support Communities; here’s one discussion thread example [3]), and caused this writer to continue using the previous version of GarageBand (6.0.5). The update also offers multiple enhancements to Accessibility; adds three new Drummers and drum kits from the rock, songwriter, and R&B genres; and improves overall stability. (Free from the Mac App Store [4], 986 MB)
