More Robot Drummers and MP3 Exports Now Available for Your Next Mac GarageBand Opus

By Gerald Lynch on at

The Mac version of accessible music studio software GarageBand has just received an update, popping a trio of new virtual drummers and and new export options into the iLife application.

Wannabe Timbalands will now be able to call upon the services of "rock", "songwriter" and "R&B" automated drummers, along with appropriate drum kit sample sounds to accompany them. They'll be available to anyone that's bought the complete version of GarageBand through the one-time in-app purchase, and include a bunch of loops too.

The ability to export songs as MP3s also returns after a brief wilderness spell, letting musicians share certain-for-stardom bedroom electro noise clash tracks in the most pervasive audio file format.
