Apple Loops are prerecorded audio files that you can drag and drop into your GarageBand project. They automatically match the tempo and key of your song, so you don't have to worry about tuning or timing. You can also edit them to suit your needs. The Apple Loops in Jam Pack: Symphony Orchestra are organized into categories such as Strings, Brass, Woodwinds, Percussion and Piano. You can browse them by instrument, mood or genre. You can also search for them by keyword or filter them by scale type or time signature.
Software Instruments are virtual instruments that you can play with your keyboard or MIDI controller. They use samples of real instruments to produce realistic sounds. You can also adjust their parameters such as volume, pan, reverb and more. The Software Instruments in Jam Pack: Symphony Orchestra include solo instruments such as violin, cello, trumpet and flute; section instruments such as violins, cellos, horns and clarinets; and ensemble instruments such as string orchestra, brass ensemble and woodwind ensemble. You can also find some special instruments such as harp, celesta and choir.
