Garage Band ahoy

The world quivered with excitement at the launch of the iPad 2 on Wednesday, and the unexpected appearance of charismatic Apple chief Steve Jobs after he was signed off on indefinite sick leave in January.

And a detail that will please budding music makers is the news that the iPad 2 will feature a new GarageBand app. Costing $4.99, the app will let users access a virtual eight-track recording studio, complete with guitars, drums, piano, bass and electronics loops.

‘I can't even tell you how many hours teens are going to spend with this, teaching themselves about music,’ a buoyant Jobs proclaimed.

Maybe for the next incarnation on the iPad we can expect a multi-track recorder, or – dare we say it – an app for Logic. The latest plastic fantastic pad of I will hit UK shores on March 25.
