Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Add tracks, part of GarageBand Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Alright, so previously, we created…a new project from the empty project template,…and in doing so, we created this song with a single track,…this classic electric piano track.…With the exception of working with GarageBand's…built-in loops, any time you want to add an instrument…or sound to your recording, you have to first create…a new track to hold the sound you're gonna be recording…or bringing in.…You can create a new track, either by choosing…track, new track,…by hitting Option + Command + N on your keyboard,…or by clicking the new-track button up here.…
Then you'll be asked to choose a track type.…And you have to decide whether this is going to be…a software instrument track,…one of two types of audio, or real instrument, tracks,…or a drummer track.…Software instrument tracks are for recording sounds…from a MIDI source.…We'll be getting into this much more later,…but MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface.…Essentially, a software track is a track where you'll…either be recording your performance…
