One of my favorite features, Garageband’s built in Amp Designer is all you need to produce amazing guitar tones in your project.

Lifted wholesale from Apple’s other music production software, Logic Pro X, the Amp Designer made it’s way into Garageband back in 2013. Whether you just want to pick a preset and rock out, or dig in and fine tune your set up in more detail, Garageband’s Amp Designer is sure to make your guitars sound awesome.

Jam packed with dozens of amp, head, cabinet and even microphone variations, you’re guaranteed to find the tone you’re looking for.
