DistroKid: How to release to more stores and streaming services

If you are a DistroKid user who has released music in the past, did you know that there are more stores and streaming services being added all the time that you can release to?

In this video, I show you how to release your previous songs and albums to the newer and perhaps less popular streaming services which have been added by DistroKid in recent times.

All you need to do is log in to your DistroKid account, go to “My Music” and check to see which platforms your music has been released to. If there are missing stores and streaming services, simple choose to add your song, EP or album to these stores.

Can you use an iRig to connect a microphone?

Can you use an iRig to connect a microphone? Not really.

In this video, I answer a question I get a lot – can I connect a dynamic microphone to an iRig or guitar interface to record on my iPhone or iPad.

The short answer to this is “no”, but it is technically possible, so in this video I show what happens when you do this, and why it is not a good idea.

Here’s the deal – microphones need a preamp to get enough gain (volume) for a decent signal and a good quality recording. When you plug a microphone in to a standard instrument jack, the volume level is so low that in order to hear the recording, you need to turn the volume up, which introduces significant noise in to the recording.

How to start a new song in GarageBand iOS (iPhone/iPad)

If you are a beginner when it comes to GarageBand iPhone or GarageBand iPad, or just want to see the process I use to set up a new track, then this video is for you.

In this video, I show how to set up a new project in GarageBand, including setting the time signature, key signature, tempo and metronome, and then record some live guitar, drums, piano and bass to show how I start building a new song in GarageBand iOS.

Here’s what is covered:
1. Setting up the project – key signature, time signature, tempo
2. Recording a Drummer track – replacing the metronome with a drum track
3. Recording guitar – using the iPad mic to record an acoustic guitar part
4. Recording piano – using the virtual touch instrument to record a piano part
5. Recording bass – using the smart bass instrument to record a bass line

Lightning to HDMI adapter (Apple Lightning to Digital AV)

Lightning to HDMI adapter (Apple Lightning to Digital AV)

If you are looking to output from your iPhone or iPad to a TV or monitor via HDMI, then you will need the Apple Lightning to Digital AV cable.

This Lightning to HDMI adapter features a lightning connector and lightning port, so you can keep your iPhone or iPad charged, as well as an HDMI port which allows you to output your video from the iPad or iPhone to a TV or monitor with HDMI.

Things to keep in mind:
1. Each iOS device will output at a different native resolution and aspect ratio, so you won’t always get complete full screen
2. The lightning port can only be used for charging, not for connecting other USB devies
3. There is a small delay between the iPad/iPhone screen and the TV/monitor
