You can now make music on your Ipad, how cool is that? It is pretty amazing that anyone (even those with zero musical abilities) can now use GarageBand, one of the newest yet highly recognized recording studios right in your Ipad.
But first things first, what is GarageBand? It is software for single and/or multi-track audio recording. When it was introduced to the world, most people thought of GarageBand as a beginner’s recording software. However, with time, GarageBand has proven to be one of the revolutionizing music software in the music industry.
For starters GarageBand is easy to use. All you have to do is drag and drop the musical instrument of your choice. For example, if you prefer to have a drum part in your music, you drag it to the grid. Also if you want another instrument to accompany the drum, you just drag it over as well. The best thing about GarageBand is the fact that you can add one or more tracks if you like, adjust the tracks volume and add loops. Basically, with this legendary recording studio, you are all set to make and play your own music.
However, as much as recording with GarageBand is pretty much for everyone and anyone, you will need to learn a few things about this software. If you want to record and make music like a Pro, you can learn a lot from a Garageband Ipad tutorial. Good news is, there are thousands of learning tutorials out there for you. All you have to do is find a reliable and reputable site that will give you effective training.
Surprisingly, this music software also provides a great number of sound effects. The software comes preloaded with different effects which include but not limited to;
• A Visual Equalizer – the Equalizer allows you to either increase or reduce the volume frequency levels in a particular sound. When adding tracks to your song (or songs), you might notice that your mix isn’t sounding that great. Fortunately, you can combat such situations by pulling out the undefined frequencies from each track. For example, if you want a vocal track to sound great, you can try removing some low mids from the track.
• A Compressor – as we all know, compression is very important when making music. Technically speaking, the compressor allows you to alter the difference between the softest and the loudest parts of a signal. This is to mean that, you make the soft parts louder and the loud parts softer. By so doing, you will allow the signal to be more pronounced in the mix.
• Master Echo and Master Reverb – the master echo control the track signals that era sent through the master echo effect, while the master reverb controls the track signals that are sent through the master reverb effect.
• A Noise Gate – whose main function it to keep out any sounds below a specific threshold.
GarageBand is a great music making application. If you learn the tweaks, you will for sure love the stomp-boxes and the amps. So update your Ipad today, with GarageBand and enjoy making your own music.
