It was really just a pre-filled template. You can start with a blank project and use GarageBand in the same way as you did before for most podcasting purposes.
Hey Gary, I've made many albums (one Grammy nomination) using Digital Performer on my Mac, but since getting into my iPad I hardly ever use my computer. So I've been working with GarageBand mobile. I find the apple loops, though pretty cool, to be very limited. Is there any way to get access to more loops for my iPad? Also, what do you think is the best microphone adapter/preamp for the ipad?
Thanks so much for all of your help. I love your videos.
I don't think there are any third-party loops for GarageBand for iOS. As for the hardware, I'm not the person to ask. I don't use my iPad for recording. I'm not really an expert on recording equipment since I'm not in the music biz. I'd ask in an audio tech forum.
Thanks very much--you tried hard but it is still too complicated for this novice. Is there a training program you can recommend for a slow learner?!
Sorry, I don't know about any training programs. Perhaps sign up for a session at the Apple Store for one-on-one training, or hire someone from a local user group to give you a live tutorial.
Hi, Gary, do you know if there is a way to show only the editable loops in the GarageBand loop browser?
Not sure what you mean by "editable" -- all loops are editable in one way or another.
How do I overlay vocal loops? Say I record one piece, then I want to do harmony to that piece. How do I do it? Thanks for your time.
You basically do just that. Record one track. Create another track and record that. You'll hear the first track while recording the second. Ideally you want to use headphones, of course.
Gary, I'm on GB '11 (6.0.5). I'm wondering if there is a way to create a "marker" on a track that will allow me to rewind to that point in lieu of rewinding all the way to the beginning. I can't find any way to perform this task and it just consumes a lot of time. Sounds simple enough, but I can't find an answer anywhere.
Perhaps look into the Arrangement Track and see if that help. I've never needed it, so I don't know if there is something to help you.
Hey Gary. I'm trying to find the keyboard equivalents to the simple transport functions: rewind, forward, rewind to beginning. Seems like an oversite to omit them on this version.
Also, do you know anything about multi monitor support?
The Return key does a rewind. Not sure of the others. You'll need to experiment to see. FN+left and FN+right (Home and End) go to the beginning or end of the song.
Not sure what you mean by multi-monitor support. GarageBand is a single window, and you can stretch it across multiple screens if you like.
Any way to get the Podcast kit back? That was the main feature I used and it's frustrating not to have it.
