If you're looking to bring some new voices to the music you make in GarageBand, Apple's got you covered. The company has recently added a slew of Chinese instruments including the pipa and erhu to the app. That's in addition to some 300 loops of music inspired by the region, and a new pair of grid templates for Live Loops -- the ultra simple music creation feature Apple introduced earlier this year.

The outfit's support for China goes even further and adds sharing options for Chinese social networks QQ and YouKu, as well. The free (for most) update is available right now across iOS and OS X. Oh, and Tim Cook will tell you all about it in the video embedded below. Thanks, Dad.
