EQ a Complete Song using FX in GarageBand iOS (iPhone/iPad) – How to Add Visual EQ to a Whole Song

In this video, I show you an awesome hack that will help you add a visual EQ to your entire master track in GarageBand iOS.

If you checked out my recent video about the 10 features I want to see in GarageBand iOS, you’ll know that having a master track is my number one request.

We don’t quite have the ability to compress or limit, but having the ability to EQ our whole mix is a step in the right direction!

A big thanks to Jason from the GarageBand Users Facebook group (http://studiolivetoday.com/gbu) who gave me this tip. Check out Jason’s music at – https://soundcloud.com/user-768224253
