Apple’s FREE plugins – now more useful

https://youtu.be/nxip7tS-vio

The free Apple Audio Unit plugins have always been pretty cool, but they had a one major flaw – as soon as you closed and opened a project the parameters would be reset.

But now, in iOS 13 and the latest GarageBand version, we now have the ability to use all these free AU plugins and effects and all the settings will be retained!

Yes, just add any of the 15 free plugins and then tweak settings as much as you like and every setting will be kept in your project. This means you can use the EQs, limiters and other effects to help make your GarageBand songs the beat they can be.
