So, I have an opportunity to get an older IMac for pretty cheap. It’s hardware supports up to El Capitan.
However, it does not come with Garage Band installed.
The App Store does not support Garage Band for El Capitan away more, so you can not get it thru Apple.
I have not been able to find any downloads or torrents for a working ILife 11 (I think) or just Garage Band that will install on El Capitan.
My question is,
-have an answer for this?
-Know of a site to download a version I can install
-Have an ILife 11 or a version of GB that I could use?
I really want to get to recording, and I really do not like the option I have with just the Ipad.
The GB on the Mac is so much better and easier to use. I might be able to figure it out on the Ipad if I already know it, but It is not a good option for learning Garage Band, or at least I think it sucks.
THE ONLY SOLUTION I HAVE FOUND THAT WORKED ON MY NEIGHBORS IMAC THAT HE BOUGHT AT THE SAME PLACE WAS
I installed Catalina, the newer(est) OS for IMac on an unsupported system.
And while this works, it does seem to operate a bit slow, and I am sure it is due to the OS running on older hardware.
While it is not ideal, I can probably get away with it and, if its my only option , I may still buy the computer, but I am worried about overall longevity of the system, I mean I will have to turn off all auto updates…
Any answers? suggestions? Software you can upload to Dropbox and I can grab?
