Sharing your song online

Video: Sharing your song online

If you want to share your song with a larger audience, emailing each person individually from GarageBand probably is going to be a little bit too time-consuming. Instead, you can take advantage of GarageBand's connection to three of the most popular social networks for sharing content. Again we start it the same way, here in the My Songs area, we tap Edit, we select our song and then we tap the Share button. So you can see here we have the options to share to Facebook, YouTube, and SoundCloud. Chances are, you already have a Facebook account or possibly a YouTube account, and you will find a lot of musicians have been signing up for SoundCloud accounts.

Sharing your song online

If you want to share your song with a larger audience, emailing each person individually from GarageBand probably is going to be a little bit too time-consuming. Instead, you can take advantage of GarageBand's connection to three of the most popular social networks for sharing content. Again we start it the same way, here in the My Songs area, we tap Edit, we select our song and then we tap the Share button. So you can see here we have the options to share to Facebook, YouTube, and SoundCloud. Chances are, you already have a Facebook account or possibly a YouTube account, and you will find a lot of musicians have been signing up for SoundCloud accounts.

SoundCloud is kind of the YouTube of audio files as a service dedicated just for serving up audio streams. So in each case, you will need an account with each one of these services before you can tap one of these buttons. So for instance, if I tap YouTube, the first thing it asked me to do is sign-in with my Username and Password. Once I do that, I can do things like adding a description to the video, adding tags, deciding whether the video or in this case the audio file, will be open to the public or just private on my YouTube account. I'll just cancel that. In the case of Facebook, it's going to switch over to my web browser, and it's going to ask me to sign into my account here so I can authorize this iPad to access my Facebook account.

Let's go back to GarageBand and the experience is very similar with the SoundCloud account. Once again you will have to sing into your account before you can access the services. But once you have signed into your account, you will be able to share your song by simply uploading it from your iPad directly to your Facebook, YouTube or SoundCloud account and share it with your hundreds or thousands of Facebook friends or even the millions of people on YouTube.
