    the UI is kinda nice and smooth though.

    Buy both they're really awesome! While your at the app store buy Synth X too.

    GarageBand is a totally different kind of app though. It's rock music focused, whereas BM2 is geared toward samlle-based beat-driven music. Two apps for two purposes, guys.

    I like both so I don't see them as competitors
    They are aimed at different markets and I can make samples in
    GB that I can use and chop in BM2!!!

    Me too! Want a good music app that is native to iPad, and at this point BM2 is it. I got Garage Band, and really like to play it. Really, a fun app.... I even played the acoustic guitar on it, and recorded into Reaper on the PC.... nice <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> But, it is not for real composing. As someone else said, they are not competitors. Two completely different apps, and both are excellent at what they do.... Now, where is our iPad version!!!!

    Garageband has some things that when compared to beatmaker2, I think you will agree may be more mindblowing.

    Although some think it is not spot on...gb does have fairly adequate velocity sensitivity...once it is tweaked it will most likely get better.

    It DOES have a sampler, and redmatica does make an app for users to create samples for it...it transfers samples via itunes

    I am sure it will support ios core midi...it is apple

    It will update more often than beatmaker2 and get added features, so i am assuming it will gain momentum.

    The instruments are really great sounding versus the general midi sounds of beatmaker2 patches...until they add more power to the keyboard sampler, bm2 will suffer from some cheesiness. The parameters need to be added to and updated with better synth features to get better sounds and sound programming capabilities.

    Although apple is very "communistic" in its app and computer approach, doing so enforces that the company has complete spec awareness and therefore can have an edge in app design.

    I really feel that intua needs a consumer advocate...i also feel that intua needs a real grasp on updating the app! They seem to have a tendency to feel the need to create a new app and scratch older code or something. In app purchasing exists, utilize it. Coming soon for 1.3 years is also not really coming soon...lol. Propellerheads are coming, and that can spell endgame to most as reason has a brandname!
