Mastering in GarageBand iOS (iPhone/iPad) – 5 Day Songwriting Challenge – Episode 9

Can I write, record and release a song in just 5 days, using nothing but my iPhone? It seems the answer is no, given it is now day 10, but I shall finish! Oh yes, I shall finish!

In this video series, you are about to find out, as I use Music Memos, GarageBand and other apps on my trusty iPhone 6S+ and attempt to record and release a complete song in just five days.

In this ninth video, I give you a glimpse at the final step in my songwriting process – the mastering! Just a very simple EQ and limiter and we are done with this track!

The song is now titled “Bully” and is part of a monthly songwriting challenge in which I participate.

Snap to Grid – Turning off “Snap to Grid” in GarageBand iOS (iPad/iPhone)

In this GarageBand for iOS quick tip, I show you how to turn off the (quite hidden) “Snap to Grid” option in GarageBand iOS (iPad or iPhone)

The “Snap to Grid” option is great for ensuring that your editing in GarageBand iOS is accurate and your tracks line up correctly, but sometimes you want a little more control and the ability to place your audio exactly where you want.

To turn off “Snap to Grid” simply zoom in by using the zoom function, which involves touching the screen with two fingers and then separating the two fingers apart. Once the screen is fully zoomed in, do this one more time and “Snap to Grid off” will be displayed. You can now drag any audio items to any position without them aligning with your other tracks or the grid.

Join MIDI Tracks in GarageBand iOS (iPhone/iPad)

Joining MIDI tracks from your virtual instruments in GarageBand iOS on iPhone or iPad is a great way to clean up your projects and free up additional tracks for more recordings.

In this video, I show you how to combine multiple tracks of the same virtual instrument in to one single MIDI track, maintaining the ability to edit the notes and MIDI information.

This function is similar to the “merge” function I showed recently which can combine and merge multiple track of any type.

Check out the video all about the merge function here – (link)
