FINAL Version with little more touches to apply more "epicness" : http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/759691

So, some of you may be thinking that Garageband iOS has very low quality of music making.

But it will be better than you expected.

This re-make song will be the proof of that.
And this would change your thoughts about Garageband iOS.

Hope you enjoy.

(Considering this song to be more fixed in the future. If you have any advice or comments, feel free to post below.)


- Garageband iOS (iPhone Version)

Brass Ensemble (Short/Sustain)
Hollywood Strings
String Staccato

- Medly iOS (iPhone)

All the percussions (Cymbals, Reverse Cymbals, All kinds of Drums)

My iPhone Status:
iPhone 5, iOS 10.3

--- All Mixed in Garageband iOS ---

[Yeah, I know. The drum might sound a bit off. You see, Medly only supports 4/4 beat while this song is 12/8 beat. I tried hard to match 4/4 and 12/8 but I guess it didn't work somehow.]

Created with Garageband iOS (iPhone Version)
Mixed & Arranged by Jessie Yun
Original Song : "He's A Pirate" by Klaus Badelt and Hans Zimmer

Listen to other good songs I've composed using Garageband iOS (These song will be much better than this, I guess!)

No way! You can do all of these things with GARAGEBAND?!?!? I had no idea. I have Garageband. Maybe I'll get into a bit of mixing.
You were right, it does sound a little off, but not too far off– it's good to me!

Great work! I think this version is better listening than the final, fwiw. :)

JessieYun responds:

Hi, All-Ears!

Thank you very much for the comment. Glad you enjoyed the song!
And I see! I'm glad this version sounded much more improved to you. :)

That title xD
But seriously, I really overlooked the garageband...It sounds AWESOME! The strings and Cymbals sounds epic and powerful (I think drum's sync is quite good too). And you said the drum might not sync because of the different time signiture, maybe changing 12/8 to 4/4 triplet rhythm could work... (not sure tho :P)

JessieYun responds:

Hi Steve!

Haha xD
Thanks so much for the comment! Glad you enjoyed it!
And... I've tried to, but unfortunately it didn't work :/

Thanks for the advice anyways!

Never underestimate the power of Garageband...

JessieYun responds:

You don't know the power of Garageband!

Thanks for the comment, PancakePocket!

You've changed my thoughts of the Garageband long time ago so no surprise here. But damn this is such a good remake, probably my favorite on NG. Please keep making music and proving us that Garageband can perform miracles in right hands!

JessieYun responds:

Hi Alex,

Thanks so much for the comment! Glad you loved the song!
And I will! :D
