Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Record and composite multiple takes, part of GarageBand Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Previously, we looked at how to record…a real instrument track, as well as how to fix mistakes…by punching in either on the same track…or onto a new duplicate track.…But sometimes all of this stopping and starting…can really get tedious and ruin the groove you're in,…especially when you need to stop recording, trim regions,…and reposition the playhead between takes.…So in this video, I wanna show you a feature that allows…you back to back attempts at a selected section…of your recording.…You can then choose which take to keep or even chop…up the takes and use the best parts of each one.…I still have the rhythm guitar track we recorded…in the previous movie here, for this example, we're gonna…add a lead guitar over the intro.…
I've already created a second guitar track…and we've chosen a sound for it.…Alright so to perform multiple takes in a row,…we need to turn on our cycle region, which as you recall,…will loop the selected region over and over again…during playback or recording.…We used this previously when we were recording softer…
