Using Garage Band for Audio Recordings

How to create audio recordings using an iPad and Garage Band:

  • rehearse your speaking points/recording before you start!!!
  • open Garage Band on an iPad
  • Click the “+” sign on the top right corner to start a new audio recording
  • Select “Audio Recorder”, then “Voice”
  • VERY IMPORTANT: in top right corner, under the ? symbol, click the “+’ symbol.  Click on “Section A”, and toggle the “Automatic” button.  This will ensure you record until you press stop; otherwise you’d only record 8 bars before recording stops.
  • Select”Radio Ready” from Vocal selection
  • Press the “metronome” symbol (looks like a triangle with a stick), so that it is grey, not blue. If it is blue, you will hear the metronome clicking throughout your recording.
  • Go to a quiet space.  If you are working on your own, it’s best if youconnect headphones to iPad that have built-in microphone, like the Apple earbuds. If recording with a small group, go somewhere there’s not a lot of noise to record.
  • When you are ready, press the red dot at the top of the screen to begin recording. Press the square button when you are finished.
  • To start over, press the “undo” arrow, which will delete everything and start over.
  • When you are done, Click “My Songs” on the top left corner
  • Press your file once (or hold for 3 seconds) to rename your file- rename to your class and group names (i.e.: 8T Bob, Larry, Junior)
  • Press your file twice to ‘share’.  Select “SONG” not project.  Select High Quality.  Airdrop to Mrs. Osborne’s Macbook (Oz Macbook Pro)
