How to download loops/samples and use in GarageBand iPhone/iPad

How to download loops/samples and use in GarageBand iPhone/iPad

In this video, I show you how to download additional loops and samples from site like freesound.org and other web sites, and import these sounds in to your GarageBand iOS projects.

GarageBand allows you to import any WAV or MP3 file directly in to an audio recorder track, or use it as a sample in the sampler instrument for even more control.

In this demonstration, I download some loops and samples, then show how these can be imported and used in GarageBand iPhone or GarageBand iPad to create some cool new sounds.

How to download MP3 & WAV files to an iPhone/iPad

How to download MP3 & WAV files to an iPhone/iPad

In this video, I show you how to use a mobile web browser (eDI Lite) to download and save MP3, WAV and any other files to your iPhone or iPad in iOS.

Safari, Chrome and other browsers do not support file downloads, so there is no way to save files to use in other apps, however eDI allows you to download and save MP3s, WAV files and any other file type to any location supported by the Files app on your iPhone or iPad.

In this demonstration, I use the web site freesound.org to download an MP3 file which can then be saved to my iPhone or iPad and used in any other application.

How cover songs can help your songwriting

How cover songs can help your songwriting and original recordings.

In this video, I take a look at why cover songs are such a good way to improve your own original songwriting and recording processes.

Cover songs are often looked down on – after all why would you copy someone else’s song when you can write your own? But the truth is (in my view) that learning and playing covers of your favourite songs can really help you learn how great songs are put together.

Cover songs have three key positive factors:
1. It is fun to learn and play your favourite songs
2. Other people love hearing familiar songs (and you can show off your playing skills
3. You can learn a lot about chord progressions and song structures that can make your original songs even better!

Mastering in GarageBand on iPhone using the FAC Maxima Plug-in

Mastering in GarageBand on iPhone using the FAC Maxima Plug-in.

In this video, I attempt to master my song in GarageBand on my iPhone using just one plug-in – the FAC Maxima. The mastering process aims to make your song “radio ready” by making final tweaks such as EQ and limiting.

The FAC Maxima works as a sounds maximiser, which is like a compressor or limiter, meaning you can get some great volume boost without losing audio quality in your tracks.

Take a look at the process as I tweak the settings to master this track, or jump to the last 3 minutes if you want to check out the mastered version of the song.
