There are a plenty of different Music Production courses out there where they focus on a lot of different things - but in this course I rather focus on the Music Production Stage and how to actually lay out ideas in GarageBand quickly instead of messing around with unnecessary knobs and other settings that you won't need to use ever in GarageBand.

This course is designed for every skill level from Beginners to Advanced. If you never used GarageBand for iPad (iOS) before, that's totally fine as well. This course includes an introduction section where we will download GarageBand on the iOS App Store and show you how to get the big additional sound library that comes bundled with GarageBand as well.

Just a few of the things you'll learn in this GarageBand for iPad course:

  • How To Get Your Musical Ideas Quickly To GarageBand
  • Produce One Full Song From Ideas Inspired Out Of Apple Loops
  • Get You Familiar With The GarageBand Interface And Looks

1. Introduction: Hey, guys, my name is Mona Svensson, and in this course GarageBand for IOS, I will show you how to learn and master Girls band. In just few hours, I'm going to show you how to download gosh man way to get it from and where to get all of the sounds from as well. I'm going to take an overview off the interface, and I'm going to talk about the different parts off garage band in briefly first. And then we're going to dive in into the different separate elements in gosh bands such such as the keyboard, smart piano alchemists and drum sections. More. Trump's acoustic drum beats a sequencer different AM's. We're also going to cover the audio recorder. You can record your own voice with different effects, as well as record guitars or linings with different amps. Also going to cover the string section based section, the tar section. You can create different, very cool cords with the guitar smart guitar, for instance. You can also set that you only play different scales off, get the guitar or the strings, piano and all off the other instrument as well. We're also going to take a look at the drummer in the drama, and you can choose different acoustic drummers, which will generate riel drum loops for, Let's Say, acoustic drums and electronic drums as well. We're also going to take a look at external instruments and plug ins, such as audio unit extensions, so that is separate rus APS that you can use within Garage band. We're also going to take a look at the Sound library that comes with Garage Band, which is huge. It's it is a lot of different sounds, and the sounds are really good, and they are all for free. Then we're also going to take a look at the live loops on live lips. It's a really cool way to get up with different music ideas in an instant, and we also go and take a look how to record your own sounds in the live loop mode as well . Then we're going to take a look at the arrangement we're going to cover how to move regions Cop Origin's at its meaty Reese Ice Loop rename and also creating apple loops, adding up loops and all of the different stuff they can do in the arrangement. We're also going to save our project with iCloud. Then I'm going to show you how to save and move projects from the iCloud to your iPad. And also I'm going to export to the full song to an MP three file that we're going to use so you can use it in your car or on your iPhone or whatever you're using there. So, as I said before, you will learn Gosh band in just a few hours with this course, So let's see you in the course. 2. Downloading GarageBand for iOS on App Store: All right. Hey, guys. In this course, I'm going to show you how to download GarageBand for iPad. So I'm here in the app store in my on my iPad here, and I'm going to write and got rush and careless. So here you can see garage band, and here are all of the different. Different. Um, yeah, um, information here. It's size, how big it is and everything I let and you can download it by pressing the little button here. I have it on open in Swedish air, as you can see. So let's open garage band. So we're now in girls band and see you in the next lecture where we explain brush man more in depth. 3. Overview of GarageBand for iOS: All right, so in this section, I'm going to show you Ah, overview off the interface here. So when we open garage band, we're going to be presented with this little window here. It's going to say sound library download for instruments, sounds and loops. And the first thing here issue can download sound library if you want to. We're going to cover that in a later lecture in a separate lecture. But just to show you a bit of an overview here, you can download a lot of different sounds, all for free from Apple, and they're very cool to have their and, as I said there for free, So just go ahead and download them. Next thing around here is the keyboard, and you can open up the keyboard by pressing it like that. You can go back with this button. Here. It can start something called Smart Piano Alchemy. Send sampler, and you can go with more sounds a swell to download even more sounds. Then we have the drum section here, Smart Trump's acoustic drums beat sequencer and even more sounds as well. I am the same thing here. You can either choose amp or you can choose a preset with clean AMP distorted bass or more there. Here we have an audio recorder, and it says, Use the microphone to record your voice or any sound so you can record a voice or you can record an instrument there. Then we have the string section, and it says top to play orchestral or solo string parts. So the same thing. If you're just pressing the strings like this, you will get a string into face. Or we can go back again. Just smart strings, for instance, something that and we have say scales here and more sounds base. Same thing Here is the same concept every time here, so base and they all have their different graphical interfaces here. As you can see guitar, its market are, let's say, I'm going to cover the different sections here. So you, if you're not, don't know what's market Tory's notes or scales. I'm going to cover all of these different sections in separate videos world, so you can change or said different settings for different presets off the world. Instruments here and the drummer. You can set acoustic drummers so you can play it here. You can also use external onto units extensions you so you can go to the APP store, which is separate for the audio units. So as you can see here, there are different. All the units and all the units are basically third party plug ins, which you can create different additional audio that isn't that doesn't come with cash. Ben was really cool. To have that as well, and as a said sound library, then we have live loops and live groups is a new thing here. It's a very cool way to come up with different ideas. So let's see e g. M. Here and now we can create different scenes with audio and these are pre made sounds, but you can switch out different sounds. Here. You can makes the individual sounds as well. You can mix down like that. You can compressor echo. You have different effects, says so it stayed up to play something here. - Okay , so there is a different things you can do here as well, and then we have arrangement section so you can always go there by pressing this button here, and it's just minimize this FX and hair is our arrangement section so we can access the apple loops, for instance, which is different sounds that comes with garage band. And if we choose that save want, we want a sense that it's Electra house. Now we can preview this sounds. And if you like a sound, we can just drag it from there to arrangement. And now we complete it, Release it through. That same thing goes with the audio recording here we can go to here. And now we can record audio here as well. We can choose different all your recorders, different effects. We can do it for fun. You can choose a different kind of filters here. And you could just play around with all your recording as well here. All right, so this was a brief introduction to GarageBand. Lets see you in the next lecture. 4. Overview of GarageBand - Part 1: So we have. Now Open up, Gosh, band on your iPad here. And this is the first page that we got here. So it's again. See, the first thing here is the sum library, and it says download free instruments, sounds and loops, and we're going to cover that in the letter. Later lecture here. So let's go to the first section here, which is the keyboard. So let's get get into the keyboard first. So legis click on it. But so now we can see this is our basic keyboard that Cashman present us with. So from here you can choose whatever somebody wants. The upper section here, so here can choose different instruments. Different pre made sounds. So let's say this is the sound that Guardsmen has, as the fault is called Epic confirmation. But let's say that we want this wondering voices here, so we're gonna go get done and how we can play here like that. Let's see for have something else. Maybe here, let's go for a synth classic eighties synth. That sounds nice. So as you can see, you can play your keys, you can create courts, and, as you can see, this blue little the blue marker there. There is where you can choose the pitch. So let's say that we have a C. Then you can just while holding your finger, you can drag it to the right side of her left side to get different pictures like that. You can also choose between Glisan dough scroll or a pitch for the same function here. So if you want to scroll through the different chords here, or the different or a different sections off the keyboard, then you will go to the scroll here. So let's go back to the pitch. All right, so here we have different settings off this instrument, so the 1st 1 is bright. But let's say that you want the filter down here. Does against you have four different presets off this son, and each synth has a difference. Different presets here. So let's say that we go with D plucked synth here. Maybe, as you can see, all of the different presets here change to this synth like that. You also have the different knobs here, so he can choose how much how much off the effect you want, how much a cut off you want and these snobs can also change to whatever instrument you have selected here. So as you can see now, all the knobs changed as well. As soon as we changed the instrument like that. Then we have the pitch. Norvir. This will define how much pitch you on. So let's playing out here. Next one is modulation. Same thing there. And here we can choose what Octave were playing. So either we can go with the scroll to find the right key. Or you can just scroll through like this instead. Then we have sustained. So let's play a key here. If you wanted to be sustained, then just dragging like that. And now it will be locked, so it will play all the time. Then we have that gear Oh, kind off function. So now I'm moving my head here, and I will choose different functions depending on how I have my iPad position. So if I play a key here now and I'm physically moving my ipad while doing this, So this is just to be kind of creative here. And as you can see, all of the knobs are moving as well. So this is kind of cool function here. All right, so then we have scale. So here you can choose different scales. So if we want, let's say you want a major here. So now I get this keyboard instead. And on all of these notes, there will be in major court thing. And then we can choose different courts here as well. So as it is here, it says, choose a scale to play a selection off notes that sound good Together, each scale has a different set of notes that gave the scale its unique sound. You can change the note that scale starts on by changing the song key. Then I have a keyboard setting setting here. So first, I'm going to get to get rid of that. Now we can chew. 5. Overview of GarageBand - Part 2: Now we can choose what keyboard we want here so we can have double keyboards. We can have a smaller keyboard, a larger one, and we can have a simple like that. Then we have the arpeggio here so we can put it to run. And now we can choose how much off the arpeggio you want. So you can either choose the speed off the appreciator. So let's say 1 16 notes and then we can choose octave range. So I'm gonna go with with four, actually, and let's see how this thing. So now it's playing basically Ford notes in different four different octaves. Then we have our smart keyboard here so I can choose on whatever you you type here, whatever you press here will be sounding good. So that's a really cool toe. How you're smart. Keyboard on. This is just this. Yeah, you can just come up with different courts by just pressing the different smart keys here, as they call it in Grossman. You can also put all to play in way like that. So you're basically choosing Darfur notes with this one on the lower notes with this one, with the order to play there. All right, so let's get back through our menu here and now we're going. Go to the smart piano. So here's a grand piano. Instead, you can click on this one to change it if you want to, but it's the same thing as I covered before. It's a smart keyboard, so whatever I'm pressing here was some good. They have the appreciator as well as I explain, and it's a stain. You can also auto play here as well. All right, So Man, the alchemy synth and this is the same thing. So it's basically exactly the same thing as the keyboard that we chose. Choose Then I have sampler, and in the sample here you can either record your own samples. So this is going to use the iPads built in microphone then. But if you have like, let's say something connected to your 3.5 millimeters sound audio inputs, then that sound will be recording. Instead, they can choose my samples as well, and here we have a smaller library here with different samples. Oh, wait. Can play that sample with a keyboard here. Some really funny. You can choose the length off the played sample like that. You can also just the length or to start an ending point. You can also reverse it, taking it really creative with this. So it's the same thing here, scaling our projector and different keyboard sizes as well. All right, so next thing here will be the drums. Let's go to the drum section here. So in this section I will get a drum in her face. But this looks more like a drum machine. So from here I'm going to create a very simple beat just to demonstrate how this works. So let's play this. 6. Overview of GarageBand - Part 3: So, as you can see, you can come up with very cool bait very easily here. And this is the main interface of this drum machine. But you can choose different, different separate sounds. Here. You can just switch them out, take and pre listen to them here. So let's say that I want to kick to here. Is that so? Just click it. You can also switch out the whole drunk it here. So you do that by going to this section here and let's say that I want a trap door instead . So now what? We use the same pattern here, but just with different sounds. So let's take a listen to this. Very nice. Then we have this thing here. It's different patterns, so this is pre made pattern. So let's say that we want a classic house pattern here. Nicosia Web two difference. Different parts here so you can just scroll through them like that, and here it can still modify this. So even though it's pre made, you can just make it your own. Here. You can have this as a starting point. They have different patterns here, can just swing machine sounds very eighties so, yeah, you have a lot of different stuff there, then we also have this one, and this is going to randomize different patterns. So there's a lot of things that can play around with here. Let's take a look at this one. This is the info so I can choose how long you want this pattern to be, how much of a step length he wanted to be so you can choose. Either it's 1 60 Notre King Get 18 Note instead. Well, basically, play ah, slower. By doing like that, then we have playback mold, so it's forward now. But we can choose, Let's say reverse that will actually played from the back to the forward. Have a lot of different settings here. Can you even choose Ping Pong? So it goes, Yeah, all the way back and then today, beginning there. So it's really nice to to play around with different cool stuff there. Then we have this section here, and this is basically the step on off. So first thing is, if we want different sounds to be played, so if you have this on, then this sound will play or if I have it often it wouldn't play. Then we have velocity. So now we can choose how much of the velocity you want off all of the each, each of them. The sounds individually, like this. You could just try them and said the velocity of them individually. Very easy and very nice time it like this. Then we have no trip eat. So now we can choose. Let's say all of these notes here is I can see are being played once, but you can actually make them to be played several times. So now if you said this four notes here, this particular sound will be played four times at this one shot here. So let's take a listen. You hear that? It actually played four times. Let's see, I'm going to creates for no stare three notes. Four notes there like that. And here two notes you can actually, as you see there a notes that they have chance, and this is how much of chance he wanted to be played. So it's getting It's like a game here. Almost They have loop, start, end. You can choose where you want this to be played here. You can either. You can even enable this section, Let's say from here, instead of having it playing played from the beginning again. She was the same thing with the ending here like that. And because we have it on being point our, it will actually play from the beginning to the end off the separate length here. So all of these are going to be played forward and back like this, and this will play like that. Let's see it now started bouncing about that enough. All right, so let's get back to our main in the face here. Let's go to smart drums and in the smart drums for have different things we can do here. Let's take the else that is on now We can take the different separate elements of drums here, and just try to me like this so you can see you can drag them to wherever you want here. And as you can see, it's allowed a complex, simple or quiet. So this is going to be a mix between all of those four here. So let's say we want this shaker to be very loud, but in the same time, we wanted to be pretty simple they want their clap to be simple. So you're just creating beats depending on where the different elements are in this loud, complex, simple and quiet area. Here, you can also switch out the different drum stick into your classics to tickets, and now it's going to be different instruments here. You can also reset here. So although I'm going to better be back there and you can also read it, randomize all of these here. That's a quiet good beat for just being randomized there. All right, let's get back to our menu here. Then we have beats sequencer as the same thing as I showed before, so let's go back to acoustic drums here instead of and here we have an acoustic drum sets, as you can see, So here we can play with the fingers if you want to. Very nice. We can also switch between the different drums. Here. You can even have Elektronik drunk. It's and this will create Elektronik kind of drum machine here. Instead, he gets that drive and crash and low and high cut as well. You can also choose different different sets of drums is you create a Chinese kit very cool interface here very nice and say We'll have the Bluebird. They're. And also, if you want to record something all off this that we're playing here, you can just hit the record button and just play on with your fingers. And that will create a region in the arrangement area that we're going to cover later on. Okay, so let's get back to the menu here. Let's go to the next one. 7. Overview of GarageBand - Part 4: All right, So next section is the amp so let's go to the ampere and from the AMP. We need to have some kind of input source. So we go this button here, and this will set our input level. And as you can see now, we have our built in iPad microphone and you can see me talking there. So, um, this will create an amp off my voice and we actually have to hit record to hear that effect as well. We can do that. We can just try try it out here, weaken. Set the different arms here. So choose that Brown, for instance. And it's that's recorded. Now I'm testing this. I'm testing this voice with the American a tremolo. I am. Let's go to the arrangement here and I can see my voice here. That's take this region and move it there. And now just plates testing this. I'm testing this voice with American troops testing this. I'm testing his voice with American trick. Don't know what what I got cut off there, but still you can hear that sound effect er with my voice. But if you would have a guitar, let's say you have a guitar, um, line into the iPad. Then you would have the iPad going through the AMP as well. So it's really nice. Let's go back to the ampere. You can also choose different bass amps and, uh, yeah, it can choose a lot of different times. We can just a setting Sierra's well with the knobs. You have a tuna here as well. So this will, Yeah, the girls band will detect what tune you are playing in where one note you're playing in and now it tries to determine what notes my voices. And so I don't think it's doing to got good of a job there. But still, you see, you get the point here with the tuner. So here we have the different effects. So you can see you can choose effects as well for damp. So you're clicking on empty space here, and it can just drag this effect here as well and can choose different levels off those effects also. So let's say that we want three effects. You can have as many affect us you want here, so it's really cool to have as well. All right, let's get back to the menu, and now we can see that we have clean. So these are just presets off different amps distorted. So instead off creating a new AMP. Every time you can just go directly to a clean AMP. Distorted or your bass AMP. Right now we have the only recorder. So don't you recorded it. Let's click that. And here we have a recorder. So the 1st 1 in the menu here is called fun. So yeah, it says Colleen here. So now we record something. It's going to record the order that we have. So is going to be my voice now. So if I'm just going to record, it's going to sound exactly like my voice that are so I can just different filters for the recordings. Then this is, as you say, See her fun. So this will be different effects. So let's say we're creating a robot here. Let's record my voice and take a listen to this one. Yeah, I'm gonna have to get back to the arrangement here and remove this voice. Let's lead it. Let's delete. This is a snippet that within here. All right, let's go back to the recorder, and that's record now testing the robots effect here with the voice recorder and all the recorder, all right around the region. Here, let's move it. Let's play. That was nice. All right, so you get the point here. You have different effects off creating with your voice, or you can even have different line inputs. So let's say obligatory. You can have your guitar being played with a robot effect so it can get really creative here with different inputs. Extreme tuning is actually really nice. Try that. Trying the extreme tuning filter with GarageBand on iPad. Let's see what this gives us. All right, take this region off. Let's take a listen, trying that extreme tuning 50 weight girlfriend. I see this gives us. So it's that actually had a pretty good job. Um, yeah, it's kind of like out auto tune there, so Oh, yeah, if if you're wrapping a lot on how creating hip hop music and R and B, that's filter is actually really good, Okay, so then we have the studio part here, and this is the same thing. You can choose different filters from this, but you can also said different filters. So let's say that we want classic keys here. Nets. Take a listen to this one. Testing the classic keys filter with the only recorder on iPad testing the classic keys filter with the only record so you can hear. It's just doing a reverb. It has some compression on. Ah, a little bit of delay there as well. And this is just if you're playing and classic keyboard, let's say that you have a keyboard and you have that line input from the keyboard or the microphone from the keyboard plugged into the iPad. Then you will have a great effect put on immediately there. When you record, it's so let's say that I'm creating drums. I say that I have microphones on from a DJ booth, and I can just record that DJ Booth and I will get nice effects from the sound recorded. Okay, let's get back to our main view here and are the same thing here with the voice. Or you can set instruments. So this is just if you're creating voice recording or if you're recording an instrument so that this is just a quick presets. Instead of going and choosing priests, as we did in this video, next things we have here is the strings. So let's click the strings here and from here I can play different strings. I can choose strings by clicking here again. Just choose by four different so cinematic modern pop dramatic. Let's try the pop on here. You can even rename them save them as well. But let's try the pop. So now I can just play here. So I'm just dragging my fingers between this different square started up here So this is really nice as well. You can also choose courts and courts will give you the smart keyboard as s in the keyboard section. This is the same concept. You can choose what instruments you want in this section. Here you can either enable or disable them individually, or you can have them said all of them as well. Same thing goes here, you can have the order play really powerful stuff there. Then we have notes. So it back here to the previous section as well, and you can choose to play the cello here again. Choose to play the bass and you can choose a different individual instruments here and then we have different settings here as well. Then we can choose a different cords here and now. We don't have any scale when I was going to be like we're playing. Ah, riel. Viola here sounds like a scary movie. So this is a good idea to just choose a scale that was sound good immediately them. 8. Overview of GarageBand - Part 5: all right to the next section we have Here is the strings. So that see here what this is and this is so next thing we have here is the base and this is the same thing. Here is the same concept. So let's see here it just looks a bit different graphically. But this is the smart keyboard that it's, um, that it comes with when you're pressing the base here so you can choose whatever scale you want there and you can also choose just courts like that. And if you go back, same thing here, smart base. You can choose what base you want here. You can also choose different synth basis as well, the Ram notes. Same thing here. It's just like playing a regular base here scales. And this is the same thing ass we had in the main base area here. So let's get to the next section. This is the guitar, and this says play on on screen guitar by strumming courts or tapping and bending notes. So let's click on it here. Same thing here. This starts with the scale. Things have different effects here as well, so you can enable and disable them. But like that, then you can also choose different guitars, seeking just between four of them. Theo. I think that let's go back. Same thing here as well. A smart guitar notes some different effects here. Since this is a different guitar, you can see so all of the different guitars has their own effects. So it's as you can see there. I have notes, same thing scales. And this is where we started with with the main guitar interface here. Let's go to the world. So this has played different instruments from around the globe. Let's see what this does. So same thing here. Can't you scale? Let's go back. You can choose different instruments here as well. Let's go to this one. So you have different settings here as well. Same thing here scales thinking just courts as well. So as you can see, if you start with the bottom here and this will be the Louis note, and then you will go up one octave on every single step here. The needs of the bars, Theo, and this goes with all of the different smart course as well 9. Overview of GarageBand - Part 6: All right, so let's take a look at the drummer section here. It says Create beats and fail for using a virtual session drummer. Let's see what this is all about. So from here you can choose different drummers, and these are named As you can see, they have all of different names here, and then I there have their own different styles as well. So let's say here, Kyle, he's playing a modern rock. So he asked that kind of a style. Then Logan here has a hitting Iraq beats and fares on the retro sounding kids and minus, for instance, is a popular dance music festival headliner. So he's creating electro house beats here, and you can also see in the opposite corner here and the right side here that Kyle is playing acoustic drums, princess and minuses, playing electronic drums with a drum machine here. So let's take a look at Kyle first. So let's stay has just played this drummer section here and let's take a listen to it. You can also see different presets here in the list, so let's take a listen to the different presets here. Did you notice that as soon as I switched the presets. All of the different settings in the bottom section here changed as well. So let's take a look at the different settings here. This 1st 1 in the left section here iss the puck and you can choose different settings. Depending on where you have this park Here, you can either go with loud, complex, soft or simple. We can also blend them calm, blend different setting. Siri can also blend them all together. Let's take a listen to it and you will see the notice between the different settings here. Don't have different drum. Syria can enable and disable of different elements of the drums. You also have different combinations off different elements. So here we have, ah, three combinations off percussion and this will be combinations off patterns that the drummers will play. So if you want, let's see this clap here to be played in another kind of pattern. Then you can just number two and number three. So it has up to three different combinations off patterns being played by the drummer and then you have the symbols. Here we have four different and kick and snare will have eight different here then we have swing also out and it can just different swings off the drummer. So let's take a listen to it. And then I have one more thing here. It's the feels she can choose. How much off fills you want the drummer to be playing so you can go. You just know no feels at all and you can have all of them. Let's take a listen to the different drummers here. I'm going to go with Magnus. Since this is a drum machine here, let's take a listen to this one. So this drama is playing E g m almost here. Okay, So same thing here aloud. Complex, soft, simple. But the only difference we have here is that we don't see an acoustic drum set since this is a drum machine, so you can enable and disable the different drum sections here. An individual drum drums here like this. All right, so that is the drummer section. Let's take a look at the external here, and this is all the unit extensions. It says playing record third party instruments directly into GarageBand song. So that's click on this one here. And this is all the unit extensions provide an easy way for third party instruments apt to be playing and recorded in garage Band. They want to browse a collection of compatible or the unit extensions available on the APP store. What this will do is it will take us to the APP store, and from there we can download different external other units. And the external units are basically just apse with different scents or different APS that generates sounds in some way. And as soon as we have the different instruments downloaded and installed on our iPad, those will show up in this menu here so you can click on them separately from directly from gosh man. You can record them inside here, and you can record them into your project here as well. 10. Overview of GarageBand - Part 7: All right, so let's take a look at the sound library, and this sets download free instruments, sounds and loops. Let's see what this is all about. So here you can see a lot of different sample packs that Apple provides us, and all of the sample packs are for free. So some of them contains apple loops, which is audio, and some of them contains drunk. It's on different drummers and different instruments. Some of the packs even have combined apple loops and instruments on drummers. So let's see here, for instance, this chill hippo pack here. As you can see, this contains almost 400 apple. Oops, it was contains all chemists and sounds, drum kits and live loop grids. The mucus. See, for instance, this rock drummers back here, this is three drummers on this will be hard rock in the disco and indie rock drummers and all of these simple tax are for free, so you can just go ahead and download all of them and try and just play around with them. It's really nice to just have some different new fresh stuff all the time. An apple or actually bringing in new free sample packs all the time here, so it's a nice place to just go and see if there is some new stuff added here. All right, let's go back to our main area here and let's go to live loops. 11. Creating a Track from Scratch - Part 1: So we're now in the live loop section here. As you can see, all of the different squares here is the friend joiners, so you can see e g m. A pop dubstep and so on and so forth, and all of these can be downloaded from the sound library as we looked at before. But now let's say that we want some. Let's say we go to hip hop here, and this will open up a live loop grade for the hip hop back. So all of these different squares here is just different audio loops, and the yellow squares are drummers, so drummer sections and pre made drummer sections the green squares here is different instruments and media that Apple loops has done for us. We can click on all of those squares to listen to them and also click on them again to stop them. Let's take a listen here. Just like that, you can also see the different individual instruments. By dragging this menu out, you can see that this horizontal instrument is toppers. This is sent pace. This is this. It can also mute them, or you can solo them as well. You can change different volumes here on levels off them. It's just close This for now, 12. Creating a Track from Scratch - Part 2: And as you can see here, all of those numbers here in the bottom section are different scenes. So if you play one of them, this will actually play the whole vertical line off the different sounds here and just press the last section the number 11 here to get the song to be stopped. Since there isn't any square stare with audio or anything containing audio information, they're all right. So this, as you can see here, you can also press this button here, and you can edit the difference square so you can move them. If you want to, you can click on them. You can edit them, so this will actually add it. The drummer section for this particular place here, you can go back here. You can also let's edit this one, for instance, like that, you can now have the audio region being Reese ice like this. You can also modify it so you can split it. You can the theoretic and copy. You can do a lot of different stuff here, so that's pressed down here and go back to this one. And you can also that see, making take up empty square here you can record into So So now you can record whatever you want to go into this cell. You can record a microphone signal. You can court record any line input signal here, so that would actually make it recorded into that cell. You can also create loops so you can push the blue button here, and this will create apple loops. It can choose different. Jonah's here. So let's say that we want, um, that's a hippo Barbie when I can pre listen different only loops here. Yeah, we want to hip hop r and B there. They say they were like this one. Now we can take this, drag it out here and just, um, just leave it like that. Now we have it into regret here, and we complain it. So just like that. 13. Creating a Track from Scratch - Part 3: You can also open up the mixer for the individual drum set individual. Since here, so as you can see, I can choose a different sounds. Instruments you can choose track, volume, track, Panyu commute and solo than from here as well. You can also compress so I can choose the compressor. Here you can just how much trouble on basic one, so a basic EQ. You can also put on some different effects, like echo and reverb for all of those individual sounds. Here, you can also go to the effects here that's close the mixer and from the effects you can choose different filters. Repeater. Let's say wobble. Reverb are bits and delay, and you can choose the same thing for the right side here and you control these with your fingers. And also you have different effects here as well as here, and I'm going to demonstrate this effects by playing them here way . - So that is how you do FX within the live loops here, and you can choose these FX and open up the mixer wherever you are in garage band. So that is really nice as well. He open up from this menu as you can see the upper menu here. All right, so next we're going to look at the arrangement and we're also going to create a track from scratch. We're going to create a full track for now, so let's see you in the next lecture. 14. Creating a Track from Scratch - Part 4: All right, so let's create a full track here from scratch. So I'm going to go with the keyboard. I'm going to start with a smart piano here and now I have a grand piano. I'm going to create some different courts, record them and see what this gave us. But let's first go to the arrangement area. So we go it by clicking here and because we played around with different drums here and drummers, we have two drummer sections, so I'm going to delete this region here on that. And now let's click on the grand piano and go back to the piano there. Ah said a temple here. I'm thinking of doing something like Elektronik. That's music here. So let's go with 1 26 Okay, let's get back to the arrangement area here and now we have our media Regan with the recorded with all of the recorded meeting. So now here is the piano rope waken. Select them like that. So now let's elect him, we can edit them. We can put velocity, for instance. We can also go back like that. I'm going to set some different apple apps here, so I'm going to go to this section here. Let's go with Gianaris. I'm going to go with Electronic. I want to take all drums. Let's take a listen. Let's take this one going to drag it in like that. I wanted to Qantas this piano as well, so I'm going to do it like this. So now it's going to will be played in sync with the song that's loop this region as well. And let's plate, I'm going to play this track and I'm also going to choose another apple before base. Let's take a listen to it. I don't think that really fits in here, so I'm thinking off getting rid of these grand piano here. So let's delete the whole track like that. And now I'm going to create something with Apple Loops here. That's so now we have three apple loops and I'm going to go with the drummer now 15. Creating a Track from Scratch - Part 5: residency is very easy to drag in different loops. Let's go to the drummer section here. As soon as you select one off the tracks, you will get an I can for whatever is set here. So for this one, you're going to get a drum like, um, for this one is going to get a voice recording. I can. So I'm going to, um, go for the drummer here. I'm going to tap create to add a new drummer region. So let's do that. And now I can choose whatever drummers I want here. So let's use miners here and let's play Magnus with our whole track. I think it's too much going on here, So I'm going to get back and take away this bounce beat here, says, Delete that and play. Now I think we have to do some mixing here, so I'm going to lower the sense and the second since, - All right, cool. I'm pretty happy with that. So now we have three different instruments, and we have our little sample track here. I'm going to create a new track, and I'm going to create a hip up this time. So let's click on this icon here nets the leads. All of these tracks like this, and I'm going to add a new track here. So I'm going to add, Let's see here. I'm going to add something else. Let's see a Wanda beat sequence here so I can create my own beat here. I think that way too fast for hip hop. So let's put the tempo to 80. Yes, all right, so let's record this and then we're going to have it in our arrangement area. So let's press record just like that. So now if you go back to the arrangement area now we have the media notes for this drum section here. I'm going to press on the region and press loop. All right, now let's go for an Apple Loops and I'm going to choose generous, and I'm going to go to hip hop and RB. And let's listen to the different since here 16. Creating a Track from Scratch - Part 6: Now let's create a bit of an arrangement here, so I'm going to zoom out of it, and this is Zoom out to the maximum since this is our son left and it's eight bars. So let's put this Teoh a lot bigger here. Let's go with this one for now and now, as you can see, it zoomed out to whatever beats or bars that we set here with 54 bars. So the song is now at 54 bars going, Teoh, create a shorter loops here like this. I'm going to zoom in at this section by just pinching with my two fingers. And now let's say that I want to move this one here. I'm going to create this time case here. It's loop it to their all right. I think I want some base here as well. So let's take a look at this one here. Lets see if at some base and let's listen to the track at the same time as we're choosing our base here. That is actually exactly what I wanted. I wanted some kind of some base there, so let's release ice this to here, and I'm going to I'm going to? Yeah, let's just make this a bit. That's here. I'm going to make this like that. Now let's make this bigger like that and I'm going to copy this region. So that's copy it. And now let's just paste it like best, not going to create this instrument here, most going to do the same thing here. Copy And now the top like that. Move it So it's in the right green there. And now let's loop that there. I don't want any base. Well, let's have the base there. Yeah, let's just take a listen to it. - Did you see that? I recorded some FX sister. He just hit the record and FX, and you do whatever you want to where the filter reverberate can choose, Let's say, echo repeater or something, and that will actually create it in the arrangement section, - Theo can see all of these effects curves here. This is automation, so the automation is saved by with their own FX tracks against here. This is really cool as well 17. Saving & Exporting: all right. So I think I'm done with this very, very simple and basic hip hop track that I did here and I'm going to save it. And I'm going to say with iCloud as well as I'm going to export it as an audio file. And how do you do it in Garage Band? You go to my songs. So now it's as you can see there. It's saving. And now this is called my songs. Six. I think. Yes, today, and as you can see, it's already uploaded it. It's 1.7 megabytes. So let's click and hold it like that. I can rename it. So let's rename it Teoh, Send off my song. Six. I would rename it Teoh Hip Hop A song like that. Now let's make it done. And from here I can choose, Select like this one and I can go to share. So now I can share the song. But what this does is basically to export the song to an audio file so you can either exported to a song and this will Um, yeah, this will export it to another file, and it says here tapped to send your song as hysteria audiophile. He can choose additional options in the following dialogue as well as you can also choose us a ring tone. Second, save it as a ring tone. You can use it in the ring tone section off your iPhone and as you can also shared as a project file so you can send it to someone that has Gershman, and they can open it up as well. So let's export it to a song. And here you can choose different audio quality so you can even even go with the locally. Or you can choose iTunes plus quality, as they call it here. You can also choose un compressed wave as well, so that choose iTunes, Plus here and share. Now it creates on export of it. I can airdrop it to my computer to my Mac book here. So let's do that. It's going to export the song, and this can take a while here, so I'm going to post this video bits here. All right, so now we're back on my computer here. So here we have our hey pop song that's opening up and take a listen to it. All right, so you can hear that this is the full track and it has all the automation in it and everything. So let's get back to the iPad now. And as you can see on the iPad, we have all over different garage band projects saved here. And as you can see on the left side here, this is the locations. So now we have our project saving on our iCloud drive. We can choose to move this to the space on our iPad so we can actually move this and we can go toe on my ipad and to the garage band folder. So now we can competent to there, and it will be located in or on her iPad here. That's really nice as well. We don't have to. Let's say that we don't want to pay for iCloud drive because that IHSAA monthly subscription fee for then we can just save it on your ipad. But let's say that we're Ripert gets stolen or we lost it or somewhere that if you say that an iCloud drive, then you can open it up even on your iPhone or if you get a new iPad, then you will see all of the projects there. So I think it's very good to save it in a nightclub drive and that it's what girls spend us by the fault as well. It can also choose more locations there, and this is if you have some subscription services like Dropbox or Google Drive, you can also save them there as well.
