Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Record a Real Instrument track, part of GarageBand Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Okay, so now that I have…my guitar audio track created,…and I've set it up to accept input…from my audio input device, I'm ready to start making…my first real instrument recording.…The first thing I'm gonna do is place that Click Track…we created in the previous chapter into my project.…Again, the Click Track is like an adjustable metronome track…that's easier to hear than GarageBand's built in metronome.…So I'll just do a quick search for the Click Track…that we created, there it is,…(metronome clicking)…and I'll just drag it into my project.…Starting at bar one, and I'm gonna loop that out…for a little bit here, and also move that up to the top…of the tracks here.…
I can also get rid of this Classic Electric Piano Track…and also this song I'm gonna be recording is in E Minor…so I'm gonna change the project key,…just in case I wanna add loops later…and if I do I want them to be in the right key.…The tempo will be 120 beats per minute, that's fine.…Alright so now we've got our Click Track,…our project is properly set up.…
