How to run GarageBand iOS in the background with other apps

How to run GarageBand iOS in the background with other apps.

GarageBand has an option which enables you to run GarageBand in the background while other apps are running, and in this video I show you how to enable the “Run in Background” mode in the GarageBand iOS settings.

If you use GarageBand iPhone or GarageBand iPad for vocals or other live instruments especially, like guitar, then the “run in background” mode can be super useful. It allows you to play back or even record in GarageBand while other apps are open and on your screen, meaning you can record vocals while looking at a notepad app while recording in GarageBand.

It is also very handy for when you want to listen to your GarageBand iOS mix without looking at the screen, as you can turn your screen off completely and still hear the audio.

How to screen record a GarageBand iOS project (and edit in iMovie)

How to screen record a GarageBand iOS project (and edit in iMovie)

The screen recorder in iOS 11 and iOS 12 is a very handy feature, and allows you to record everything happening on your screen.

This is especially cool for things like showing your GarageBand projects playing back, but the problem is that the audio from the screen recorder is only mono and not the best quality.

So, in this video, I show you how you can export your GarageBand project as a high quality WAV file and then combine it with the video from your screen recorder, using the free iMovie app on your iPhone or iPad.

New to using the screen recorder? Check out my beginner’s guide here –

How to convert MIDI tracks to audio tracks in GarageBand iOS

How to convert MIDI tracks to audio tracks in GarageBand iOS (iPhone/iPad)

Virtual instrument tracks (MIDI) are really cool. They allow you to play instruments and record tracks that you never would be able to in the real world. But some of the options when it comes to adding effects and plug-ins are a little limited.

This is where the “merge” function comes in handy once again.

In this video, I show you how to convert a MIDI track in to an audio track, and then use audio presets and even and amp simulator to get a unique, custom sound.
