How to import MP3, M4A & WAV files in to GarageBand iOS (iPhone/iPad)

Are you looking to import an MP3, M4A, WAV or AIF audio file from your Files app, or even sent to you via email in to your GarageBand project on iPad or iPhone?

Do you have an instrumental version of a song that you’d love to add some lyrics to?

Or are you tend to collaborate with another GarageBand iOS user on a song?

Well, this video is for you. I’m going to show how to import any supported audio file (WAV, M4A, MP3, AIF) in to GarageBand on the iPhone or iPad, so we can add some more tracks.

This is great if you’re looking to work with another artist, add to an existing song or even sing some karaoke on an instrumental track, and is easy to get started.

Big thanks to these two for helping with the music arrangement I reference in this video:

Using Apple’s Audio Unit Plug-ins in GarageBand iOS (iPhone/iPad)

Apple provide a whole set of useful Audio Unit (AU) plug-ins that can be added in to GarageBand iOS on iPad and iPhone, however there is a catch!

The limitation is that when you close and re-open a song, the effect settings will reset back to default.

There are some ways that we can still use these effects in our projects, which is what I will show you in this video.

Covered in this video:
1. What are the additional free Audio Unit effects in GarageBand?
2. Why are these plug-ins not as useful as they could be
3. How to add these additional effects in GarageBand if you don’t already have them enabled
4. Using the Apple AU effects on a single instrument track
5. Using the merge function to save the effect settings to the track
6. Using the Apple AU effects in a mastering session in GarageBand
