Create Unique Music For Your Videos In GarageBand

Instead of using music from a collection or jingles from iMovie you can easily create your own video soundtrack in GarageBand. It only takes a few minutes to combine a drum track with other loops and then export some music that you can drag and drop into iMovie or Final Cut Pro. Then your video will have unique royalty-free music that fits the content.

    Love you way of explaining Garageband. It’s intimidating to me, always has been, I couldn’t whistle a tune, but now I feel I can just get in there and created something even I would like. Thank you Gary for your simple explanation.

    Hi Gary,
    Love your way of explaining Garage band.
    I’m also interested in Final Cut Pro X.
    Going through some health difficulties at present. Will be in touch, hopefully soon.

    Thanks Gary,
    I have been using GB for a very long time. I use it to illustrate short stories I record into GB. I spend a lot of time mixing different instruments and the loops work together with a little “fine tuning”. I wish I understood how all of the loops are organized. I do see the colors blue, green, and the drummer is usually gold. Is there a guide to help understand these? Also, I am not sure I have all of the loops.

    Louise: Green are the MIDI loops. So a set of notes instead of recorded audio. You can do two cool things with those: change which instrument is playing them and edit the notes to change them. They are really fun to play with.

    Thanks you so much!!! I have a piano keyboard which I can use with GB. Can I make my own loops? I am going to spend more time with this software. I can also take the exported file and use it with Keynote. The audio is so good in GB.

    How do I stylize and orchestrate my own melodies using GarageBand?
    You’re advise is right on and most appreciated.

    John: That’s a huge question. You’ll need to take the time to play with and learn most of the features of GarageBand first. Be patient. Don’t start by trying to make your song. Start by experimenting with smaller projects. After many hours of learning and experience, then you should be able to do bigger things.

    This was a great tutorial! I’ve used GB for years to import a song from iTunes to edit but never anything else because it seemed intimidating. Thanks so much.

    I used some loops on my YouTube video, and received a “NoNo” from them, saying my song was already copyrighted. I called Apple, and the rep was aware of the issue, but no real solution. I’m in YouTube limbo. Have you 1) had this problem and/or 2) solved the issue with using Apple loops? Any advice would be appreciated. Your video is excellent, thanks for the explanation on “Drummer” tracks!

    Jackie: Only once in all these years. A while ago. I simply submitted the response back to YouTube that this was not copyrighted material and it was fine after a day or two.
