Apple has released GarageBand 10.0.3 with support for OS X 10.10 Yosemite, though it’s remains compatible with 10.9 Mavericks (unlike the just-released “iMovie 10.0.6” (18 October 2014), which ups its minimum system requirement to Yosemite). GarageBand 10.0.3 now enables you to access audio effect plug-ins for more detailed control and build your own bass rig with Bass Amp Designer using vintage and modern amps, cabinets, and mics. It also adds a new Voice Template for fast and easy vocal recordings, the capability to share projects using Mail Drop (when signed into iCloud), a vertical zoom that automatically adjusts the height of your tracks, and multiple enhancements to Accessibility. ($4.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update, 1.17 GB, 10.9+)
