About This Class

In this class, you'll be working with the Live Loops grid and the Remix FX Controls - two fantastic features of GarageBand for iPad. These features are suited best to people who want to play, mix and remix like a DJ on the fly. You'll learn to use the App in ways that require zero musical training or knowledge! Please use the 'Leave Review' button to give this class a thumbs up if you like it!

Note: You will however need to be using an iPad that meets the hardware requirements for these features - more info on this GarageBand for iOS page on iTunes

Considerations

Please note:
All videos are optimised for full screen viewing on iPad devices in 4:3 aspect ratio.
These tutorials are based on using GarageBand for iOS 2.1.

 

NOTE about GarageBand for iOS version 2.2:

In January 2017, Apple updated the GarageBand for iOS App which changed the way some things look and added some new features. 
Fortunately, I’ve been able to put together a FREE class that will help you if you’re looking at my previous classes that were made using version 2.1:
Mobile Recording Studio: GarageBand for iPad - App version 2.2 updates

This class will take you through changes made to the GarageBand App for iOS in version 2.2 - In particular, it will cover any part of the App that has changed or looks different in my videos made before January 2017.
