How to use custom and multiple time signatures in GarageBand iOS

How to use multiple and different time signatures in GarageBand iOS

GarageBand iPhone and GarageBand iPad only allow you to use 3/4, 4/4 and 6/8 time signatures by default.

So what if you want to use a more exotic time signature like 9/8 or 5/4? Well, it takes some extra effort, but it can be done by making your own metronome (click track) in GarageBand iOS.

Recording your own metronome is a simple process. All you need to do is determine how many bars and what time signature you want to use, and then record a drum beat with the desired pattern.

Using multiple time signatures is also quite easy. Simply record a second section of drums using another time signature.
