Garageband Goes (RED): Groovy Sounds For A Great Cause.

Apple pushed out an update to Garageband on Sunday, adding a timed in app purchase consisting of a special (RED) loop pack – an exclusive collection of 300 guitar, bass, synth and drum loops!

Unfamiliar with (RED) and what they do? Check out their manifesto right here.

As good causes go, it doesn’t get much ‘good-er’ than this and every penny you spend on the (RED) loop pack (as well as all other iOS apps involved) goes directly to help fund (RED)’s fight against AIDs.

At only £0.69 ($0.99 USD) it’s a bargain! The fact that the included sounds are absolutely stellar is a plus too…


Here’s a wee taste of what you’ll get:




To get your hands on these tasty new sounds, you’ll need to update your version of Garageband iOS, either by following the on screen prompt that will automatically pop up inside the app, or by manually heading to the app store.




One swift download later and you’ll have full access to over 300 new sounds! You can easily tell them apart from your existing loops by their distinctive red colour within the loop browser.


It’s as easy as that!


I’d highly recommend getting a hold of these new sounds before the December 7th cut off date – Not only are you supporting a fantastic cause, you’re getting some great sounding loops at an insane price!


Have you downloaded the (RED) loop pack yet? I’d love to hear how you’ve used them in your projects – post links to your (RED) loop infused tracks in the comments section below!

    Thanks, Patrick! I would otherwise never have known about this. Did you create the demo track? Nice!

  • Patrick

    No worries Diana. Yeah, it was great fun putting it together!

    I did Diana, using only the loops from the (RED) update – they’re brilliant!

    Is this loop pack still available?
