    It's basically just like garageband. You can use a MIDI, you can record tracks, you can use some of their tracks as well.

    This is a loop mixing software that has a big variety of loops that can be purchased in packs. However you get 4 packs of your choice for free. Note: can not save until track is completed.

    As someone else said, it's just a loop mixing app. You could try it out, but I don't think it's worth the time if you're looking to create full-fledged songs that you want to sell.
