Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a new project, part of GarageBand Essential Training.
…Now let's take a look at how to create a brand new project in GarageBand.…I'm going to close the project we were working on in the previous movie.…I don't need to save anything here. And now I see this new project window.…To create a new project, just make sure a…New Project is selected here in the left-hand column.…That gives you these seven options to choose from.…You can record any type of music using any of these options, but as you…can see these are basically templates to…get you started with particular types of music.…For example, if you're a keyboard player you may…want to double-click the Keyboard Collections.…That creates a new project with 15 different keyboard tracks pre-created.…
If you have a MIDI-keyboard connected to your…Mac, and I'll talk about setting up keyboards a…little bit later, you can select the track and…then start playing that particular keyboard type right away.…Let's close that without saving.…If you're a guitar player, you might want to start with the Amp Collection.…So here you get 15 tracks of different guitar amps.…
