4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Add On June 24, 2009
I use Garageband to help develop my guitar skills and I thought that the loops that came with GarageBand were lacking in the drums department. This JamPack has a good selection of drum loops that work great for playing along with or for piecing together an original songs. After installing the JamPack, I now have 1236 drum loops of which about one third are for soft instrument drum kits and the other two thirds are actual recorded sound. I am pleased with the variety of the loops and fact that there are some fills.

I used an entry level drum machine for a while, but it was difficult to set up with the provided beats and even more difficult to program original beats. The drum machine costs twice as much as the JamPack. The loops and fills provided with this JamPack are way easier to set up for a song and the midi data can be edited to create new beats.

Overall, I am very satisfied with the product. If it were less expensive it would probably get five stars. (I have not fully explored the bass loops because I record my own bass tracks, so I have no comment on that aspect.)

5.0 out of 5 stars A lot of rock for the buck March 7, 2008
I don't have a lot of music production experience, which is why I love Apple's GarageBand. This JamPack was easy to install - when I opened the program afterwards it was as if all of the new loops and instruments were always there. The sound is suprisingly warm and authentic, and I found the selection to be pretty comprehensive. This JamPack is a great foundation for anybody looking to learn the basics of the program... great drum kits and some incredible bass sounds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Guitars August 26, 2008
By jasmcl
I bought this just for the electric rock guitars and was not disappointed. Power chords, feedback, distortion, everything you need for real sounding rock sequencing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't get this... GET MAINSTAGE! April 17, 2015
If you want these jam packs don't get this... buy MainStage - an app in the OSX app store that will give you all of these (and the other jam packs) for a lot less... The sounds and loops are incredible!

Rather than hauling a drum set into my apartment, I can now build great sounding drum tracks into my Garage Band tunes. Lots of cool choices, patterns and styles.
