Garage Band turns 15, music in the palm of your hand

Apple revealed Garage Band to the world in 2004, an amazing bit of software that allowed you to create music – without actual instruments – right on your Mac.

Whole songs have been produced using Garage Band.

Happy Birthday Garage Band, may you bring many more people hours of musical joy for many years to come.
