Artist-branded sound packs are all the rage on platforms like Splice, but we shouldn’t forget the music-making might wielded by Apple with its GarageBand software. That’s an opportunity for similar content, and Apple is taking it.
The company has announced a pair of new ‘remix sessions’ focusing on Dua Lipa and Lady Gaga. They are based on sessions that have been run in Apple Stores as part of the ‘Today at Apple’ program, with videos of the artists talking about the featured tracks, and isolated elements of the songs to play with in their own remixes.
The two sessions will sit alongside seven new ‘producer packs’ of loops, beats and instruments created by producers including Boys Noize, Oak Felder and Tom Misch. The samples are all royalty-free, and the packs (Dua Lipa’s and Lady Gaga’s included) are free to download too.
