Like a lot of people I've been using Garageband on the Mac for years and decided to invest in an iPad version so I could work on new songs either on the Mac
or on the iPad.
I thought as they both had the same name they would share the same files. I was disappointed to discover that this was not the case.
Being a curious programer, I had a look at the file format and realised that each platform change the XML code, WHY? who knows. I made the changes to the files and found that they worked. But after doing this manually a few dozen times and screwing up a number of songs due to clumsy hands, tired eyes or messing around at 2am, I decided to write myself a simple program to do it automatically. One of those 30 minute jobs that takes weeks
The result was my:fixed1t Garageband Mac to iPad 2 and iPad 3 converter
You can review the video at my fixed1t youtube site:fixed1t Mac Garageband to iPad Garageband Converter Video
You can request a trial version of the software at my fixed1t websitefixed Garageband to iPad software webpage
Shortly after releasing the software, somebody asked about an iPad mini version, so I added it to the list of converters.
If your a Garageband user wanting to share songs with musicians on other platforms, take a look.
