How to edit a sampler track in GarageBand iOS

How to edit a sampler track in GarageBand iOS

The sampler is a great option for adding some unique sounds to your GarageBand tracks, but it can be challenging to work with the track once you have recorded it.

In this video, I once again use our old friend the merge function to enable editing on a track recorded using the sampler.

If you have been struggling to play back part of a sample or chop up your samples to create cool effects, then this video is for you!
