∞ GarageBand 6.0.2 supports GarageBand for iPad projects

Apple on Thursday released an update to GarageBand, its music making software for Mac that’s included with iLife ’11. It corrects a problem that The Loop’s Jim Dalrymple first identified on March 10th.

[ad#Google Adsense 300×250 in story]GarageBand 6.0.2 makes fixes that improve overall stability and correct minor issues, according to Apple, but one change was worth breaking out – it now supports the ability to open projects imported from GarageBand for iPad.

The new release, GarageBand 6.0.2, can be downloaded either from Apple’s Web site or from the Software Update system preference.

GarageBand for iPad was released in early March along with iMovie for iPad – Steve Jobs demoed both of them during the introduction of the iPad 2 (though GarageBand works with first-generation iPads too).

Apple recommends that all iLife ’11 users install the new version.
