How to mix vocals in GarageBand iOS (iPhone/iPad)

How to mix and edit vocals in GarageBand on the iPad or iPhone to get them sitting nicely in the mix.

In this video I show the steps I take to edit and mix a vocal track in GarageBand iOS including adjusting presets, plug-ins and EQ, automation and volume.

I also give some tips on how to remove breaths and mouth noises, some common mistakes folks make by recording their vocals too loud, and how to generally clean up your vocal tracks to make your songs sound polished.

Included in this video
1. Adjusting the of a section of audio using the “clip gain” feature
2. Changing the vocal preset
3. Why the “noise gate” is not a plug-in that I use
4. Adding reverb and echo
5. Adjusting compression settings
6. Adjusting the overdrive settings
7. Using Visual EQ to adjust vocals
8. Using volume automation to control gain
