Apple has released a minor update to the Mac version of GarageBand. Version 6.0.2 reportedly improves overall stability, but most notably it introduces support for opening projects created in the iPad version of GarageBand (see “GarageBand for iPad and Mac Not Yet Ready to Play Together,” 11 March 2011). When you first open an iPad project after installing this update, GarageBand on your Mac will need to download an additional update that’s just shy of 200 MB. Note also that when you open iPad GarageBand projects, you’ll immediately be prompted to save them under a new name. That’s because once you’ve modified a project in the desktop edition, it can no longer be opened by GarageBand for iPad. ($14.99 new on the Mac App Store, free update, 47.44 MB)
