In this course, author and musician Garrick Chow reviews GarageBand for the Apple iPad—an inexpensive yet powerful app that allows you to record and edit music with both real and virtual instruments. The course begins with a tour around the interface, examining the instrument and track views. Garrick demonstrates how to play both touch instruments and Smart Instruments, as well as how to connect and use real instruments and microphones. Garrick then explains how to build, record, and edit a song from scratch, and how to then export and share your music with iTunes, Facebook, YouTube, SoundCloud, email, and with other devices.
And there you have it. I hope you have enjoyed going on this trip through GarageBand with me, and that you will be able to take what you have learned here and start creating some great songs on your own. Now I have mentioned this a few times throughout the course, but if you're interested in more information on how to connect all types of devices like guitars, keyboards, and mics to your iPad and play them through GarageBand, be sure to check out the course in this series called Inputs, Mics and MIDI. And be sure to check lynda.com regularly or sign-up on our mailing list to be alerted when we release new courses in iPad music production. So until next time, I'm Garrick Chow, and I hope you have a lot of fun creating music with your iPad and GarageBand.
