Awesome face at 0:02… I thought I was the only one who makes this face. I’m impressed. Watching the video now to get my garage band skills up lol


Can you make it so I can play on my phone cuz I have a Samsung Galaxy J1 6

BlackburnBigdragon says:

And of course, search up and read that manual. There’s so much in there that it’s a must to read to make heads or tails of 80% of the stuff. The only thing that really screws me up is the use of symbols for every menu and a lot of the editing techniques are.. clunky. But for a functioning recording studio on my phone that’s pretty much freeware, I’m not going to complain too much. But really, read that manual. It looks daunting to read, and the way it’s formatted online is kind of awkward with it’s links all over the place, but it actually doesn’t take that long and it’s a must read with this powerful music maker.

Cullen Hart says:

Thank you sir.

Minecorp’s X says:

How do we export as .MP3 files?

Miss M says:

Thanks for the information. I’m recording an audio book using my ipad and Garageband. At the end of the segment/region, it will automatically start at the beginning. I do want to start over each time and the Loop setting is turned off. How can I stop this from happening?

How can I install the app

Coady Entertainment says:

I can’t seem to get the strings to mute and I’m swiping on the cord strips on the edges and on the sides as you suggest and it isn’t working. I’m using a newer iPad.

pastorgg1 says:

Can you change the key of the loop? If not how do you find loops in the key you are working in?
