Garageband No Sound

Although GarageBand detects the MIDI Driver, no sound is played when I hit the keys. I tested on The Musical Typing just to check that it wasn't a problem with the audio not being played from GarageBand, but nope - it's just my physical keyboard not playing sound.

Try again after each step

  1. In the App Store, tap Updates. Find GarageBand in the list. If you see Update next to GarageBand, tap Update. If not, skip this step.
  2. If you use Audio Units Extensions or Inter-App Audio apps as instruments or effects with GarageBand, check with the manufacturer for updates.
  3. If you use an external audio interface, disconnect it. If GarageBand works, you might need to update or service your audio interface.
  4. Delete any Audio Units Extensions or Inter-App Audio apps.
  5. Create a new song, then play it. If it works, check your other songs and solo tracks to see which one caused the issue.
  6. Reset GarageBand. Go to Settings > GarageBand, then tap Reset GarageBand. When you reset GarageBand, your song files, presets, or patches aren't affected. Other custom settings, such as the 24-bit audio resolution and Multitrack Recording settings, are reset to factory defaults.
  7. Back up any songs on your device. Then delete GarageBand and redownload it.
