VST plugins have become the glue that binds many processes in music making together and have gradually become essential to everything, from mixing to creative composition. Plug-in effects run within DAWs (Digital Audio Workstations) in a similar way to virtual instruments. You insert them on your instrument or audio tracks and open them up in the same way as a synth; and like those virtual recreations of classic gear, plug-in effects can also emulate old gear. In fact, many of the early ones were developed to copy expensive analogue equipment again, just like virtual synths. However, now there’s also a whole world of other effects available, from creative and compositional, to those that even do your mixing for you. Here we look at the best vst plugins – both paid and free – that will help craft better beats.

I’ve showed this trick in one of my videos, but I think it is worth showing with screenshots. Here’s a guide how to export track from GarageBand to other apps.
Open MySongs page in GarageBand, push the Edit button (on the top right corner of the screen) and select the song you want to export.
Choose Mail option and you’ll see Share Song window, click Email in the top right corner and you’ll see the picture below:
Push there Cancel button and choose Save Draft. So mail draft with you file attached would be saved in the mailbox.
So now you need to open Mail App, go to the iCloud/Drafts folder and open saved draft.
You’ll see same email with song attached but you can’t open the attachment while email is in the draft folder.
Now press the Trash icon. And your mail will be moved to Trash folder.
Go to the iCloud/Trash folder and open same email. You’ll see that now attachment is active. So tap and hold on the file and you’ll see standard Open in… dialog.
Now you the export track from GarageBand trick is done and your GarageBand song can be opened in any app that support m4a files.
Some apps support only wav files or AudioBus or AudioCopy so I recommend to use AudioShare to convert between file formats and sharing formats.
