Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the new synths in 10.1.0, part of GarageBand Essential Training.
- This is a new movie recorded…in July of 2015 after the release of the…GarageBand 10.1.0 update.…Now in the What's New movie at the beginning of this course,…I ran through a list of new features found…in this update including things like new drummers,…new loops, and new synth sounds.…But I felt that the new synth sounds deserved…to have their own movie,…because they actually come with a brand new…controller called the Transform Pad.…I'm going to create a new project…with the Keyboard Collection,…and we've seen this before.…This generates a new project…with several piano, organ, and synthesizer tracks…already created for us.…
So the Piano track is selected by default.…(piano sounds)…And you can see the Smart Control panel…is open here at the bottom of the screen.…And with each instrument we select…we see different Smart Controls.…The way you can tell which synthesizers…are new in this version of GarageBand…are when you select one, for example,…in this case, like 80s Sync Lead,…and you see the new transform pad here…
