Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing and exporting audio files, part of iPad Music Production: Inputs Mics and MIDI.
Throughout this course we have been looking at different ways to get live sounds into your iPad, …but before we wrap things up here I want to take a couple of minutes to look at how to …get prerecorded sounds from your computer onto your iPad. …Maybe you recorded a demo or even a single audio file that you started on your computer, …that you would like to continue to work on on your iPad. …Now whether you can do this or not, and how you do it, depends on the app you are using. …You also have to know what type of file the app can accept. …For instance, GarageBand can accept WAV files, AIF files, MP3s, and AACs. …You'll have to check with the app to see what type of file it can accept.…
But the way you do this is first connect your iPad to your computer with the USB cord and then start up iTunes. …In iTunes, select your iPad, then go to Apps and then you want to scroll down, and here …you'll find an area called File Sharing. …This will list all the apps that support transferring the files back and forth between your computer and your iPad. …
