    Hello,

    I'm trying to run Garageband on android. I've tried an ios emulator but i can't get it to work. Is there a method I'm missing? I would love to run garageband.
    I dont want to go out and buy an apple product solely for garageband. :/

    You can run it on a pc, maybe via emulator (as in on your phone via a windows emulator)
    , I don't think music creation via phone is the way you want to go. It's very tedious, slow, annoying to deal with, bad ui, lack of features, etc...

    Why would you want Garageband when there are much better DAWs available that run natively? And as said above, composing on a mobile device, especially through an emulator, is not going to be a fun experience. In reality, these mobile DAWs are more like companion apps for their PC counterparts. Mobile devices don't have the power to render full tracks, and these DAWs are more for laying out simple stuff like percussion tracks that can later be exported to a PC for the rest of the project. Also, take it from a musician with a Mac; you don't want Garageband in general.

    Android is probably the worst platform to make music on. iOS is light years ahead in terms of audio processing and latency.

    Best way to start learning how DAW's work is by downloading a free one for PC, or a trial version of something like FL Studio or Ableton.
