Apple files for patent for ‘dynamic music authoring’

Apple has filed for a patent (number 10,224,012) for “dynamic music authoring.” It includes presenting, on a display, by a computing device (either an iPad or Mac, I would think), an audio effect menu. It most likely involves future changes to GarageBand and Logic Pro.

In the patent, Apple  notes that modern computing devices can be configured with software that allows users to create music at home. However, the music authoring software “is often difficult to use and often requires the user to have specific expertise or training in how to use the music authoring software to combine the music segments into a coherent musical product.” Apple wants to change that.
