Apple’s Worldwide Developer’s Conference (WWDC) might have ended last week, but the company is still announcing updates to its core products.

The Cupertino-based giant recently updated its GarageBand audio editor on macOS, adding some tweaks and refinements, while making it easier to use the app alongside the MacBook Pro’s Touch Bar.

Editors can more easily navigate the timeline, by dragging across the Touch Bar to get a full view of their work.

Additionally, an optimization Apple calls “Performance view” allows editors to turn the Touch Bar into a simple one-octave keyboard or drum pads.

On the subject of drums, GarageBand 10.2 also comes with three new drummers that play Pop, Songwriter, and Latin still beats. The update also introduces new drummer loops.

In addition to all of these updates, GarageBand 10.2 has been visually modified to bring it more in line with macOS Sierra.

Editors can also remotely add new tracks to their projects by using the iOS versions of GarageBand on iOS and iPad.

GarageBand is available for free on iOS, and is available for download on the App Store.
