Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Simultaneous multitrack recording, part of iPad Music Production: Auria.
In this movie we are going to look at simultaneous multitrack recording, and to help me out, I am now joined by the entire band, we have James on vocals and guitar, Alex on drums, Abe on bass, and Craig on the dobro. Here in Auria, you can see I have already set up eight tracks and they are all Record Enabled. If I go over to the Input Matrix, you can see each track has a separate input being routed to it. Now at this point, I am going to ask the band to play a little while I set the levels on my input device. I am also going to record the audio tests so we can get a look at the waveforms in the Edit window after the band has played a bit. So I am going to Record Enable, we are rolling.
And James, if you could play a few bars and kick us off? James: Sure, one, two, three, four. (music playing) Garrick: Okay, so the levels are looking pretty good at this point.
I am going to roll the playhead back to the beginning of song by double tapping the Rewind button. I am going to Record Enable again, and we are rolling. James: One, two, three, four. (music playing) Garrick: All right. That sounded great, guys. And there is our live multitrack recording.
This course will be updated regularly as new features are added to Auria, so check back often. Working with a different app? Check out other installments in this series, including iPad Music Production: GarageBand and iPad Music Production: AmpliTube.
