GarageBand中

Recently, I picked up an iPad 2 on it's US release day even though I'm up in Canada. Luckily a fellow Apple fan made the trek to Buffalo and got two. Speed is definitely better on these new models and

最近,我拿起它的美国发布之日起,即使我在加拿大的一个iPad 2。幸运的是,一位同行的苹果迷布法罗跋涉了两个。速度对这些新车型,因为这绝对是好, 为iPad的GarageBand已经成为我的一个新的瘾。

阅读我的经验,找出iPad和所有的方法,我把它作为一个实时的仪器和多轨录音设备测试的GarageBand。

在现场卡住

我去卡纸之夜只有一个公理的M - Audio Pro和USB摄像头连接工具包,使用GarageBand我的iPad 2。钢琴响应坐在组合。但突出了的B3机关。在至少3个其他的键盘手走过来检查设置和声音非常深刻的印象。钢琴,风琴和合成器之间的切换也快。

My wish list... layers/split for piano/bass and piano/pad sounds etc., more effects, third party plugins and perhaps more sounds like strings. Heck Apple... just give us a version of MainStage on an iPad!  The camera connection kit I used to connect the USB out of the Axiom Pro to the iPad  works well but also presents its own set of problems. I found the adaptor pops out of the iPad too easily and it became frustrating to get the sounds playable again from the Axiom Pro without restarting the application or even having to restart the iPad. If you were also customizing your patches or now saving your song and adding a name to it, the connection had to be pulled so that the onscreen keyboard could pop up.

早在工作室

至于iPad的使用GarageBand 2记录,我发现自己微笑着巨大。它并不完美,但考虑什么,我们能够做一个应用程序,这样薄的设备不超过5的,只是boggles我的脑海。您得到的软件合成器,吉他放大器,循环,采样器和“智能”的文书。

限制包括缺乏影响其他混响和延迟,歌曲部分的编号,您可以添加(共10个,尽管你可以放弃做“自动”模式,给你一个无限数量的酒吧),无键或节奏的变化范围内一首歌曲,和你拍摄后的编辑MIDI音符/音频数据的大单。我也将能够分配一些旋钮来过滤我的公理临截止,共振等,并记录过滤器扫描,但仍享有... ...我们谈论的5美元,你可以做更多的编辑,当你在Mac上传输的歌曲为GB!

获取循环

Just like Garage Band on the Mac, the iPad version has Apple Loops. Great for starting off  although I find I can identify more and more of these loops in songs, TV, commercials, etc. The set of loops provided are also only a small set from what you may be used to on the Mac version and I hope we can eventually add more including our own loops. One thing that's annoying is when adding the loops is it will take up the whole section from the bar where you dropped it in right on to the end of the section. So instead of a 2 bar loop being only 2 bars, it will fill up a section that may be 8 bars.

变得更聪明

苹果表示,任何人都可以成为一个音乐家,与它的智能仪器部分,我总是笑道。某一点上,我理解他们,但最终它有助于实际了解一些音乐理论等初学者音乐家的意见的话... ...保持跟踪您的和弦变化,你就会有一个更好的文书之间的和弦冲突的机会不大的冠冕堂皇的歌曲。但即使是博学的音乐家,灵感可以来自这些文书。尤其是,我发现有用的智能鼓与它的“滚动的骰子”随机模式的部分。

即使钢琴模式,您可能没有想到的或者你不能玩吉他维伊,但可以使用自动播放“strums”或“复苏”为您注意到。

吉他输入

如果你是一个吉他手时,GarageBand可以成为一个伟大实践,特别是与它的放大器工具,但你需要获得一个这样的输入设备的IK Multimedia 的IRIG或 Apogee的果酱,插在你的吉他。 GB的给你一个从马歇尔到橙色的放大器,甚至踏板选项。

听起来不坏,应该满足大多数吉他手的需要,特别是为demoing材料。在将来,我希望看到通过USB相机连接套件和自定义预设的MIDI控制踏板等。

声乐输入

歌剧还可以得到上行动,但再次为最好的声音质量,你会需要的东西,像蓝色的新麦克风,

您可以录制的人声,然后改变你的声音与像“电话”,“扩音器”,“花栗鼠”等,也许在第2版的影响,苹果公司也可以给我们一些更“有用”的预设,虽然“小房间”词曲作者“和”大房间“是不是一个糟糕的开局,并进行动态控制的一些基本的压缩。

我们今天仅仅是个开始,我可以看到GB的更强大的管道,这将使未来的更新。对于一些其他伟大的秘诀就在iPad上使用的GarageBand退房Rounik塞西的文章“ 为iPad的GarageBand的重要工作流提示“

到明年的时间... ...保持摇摆!

    Great article. Useful features of the app were highlighted, but you also gave criticism of the app with an eye towards the future. This is what electronic/MIDI musicians should start expecting, and we will get it if we speak up about it. Many Thanks.

  • Thanks Adam, GB on the iPad2 has just scratched the surface... and in my opinion, deeply! Hopefully some of my criticism will get noticed by Apple and updated. Personally, I would still LOVE to see a MainStage app. Cheers!

  • I use logic pro but want the ipad2 so I can record ideas when I travel, take those ideas from ipad2 and move them into logic pro on my home computer. However, they tell me at the Apple Store that Garage Band doesn't have an update for my home computer's GB. Have you opened your file from ipad2 GB and moved it to another computer?

    Hi Brenda, I just this minute took a song I made on the iPad and transfered it to iTunes. Then dragged it out of iTunes and opened it in Logic. There is a GB for Mac update which I'm waiting to download to enable me to open the same song in GB for Mac. There are a couple of instruments that aren't recognized in Logic - but all the data is there and you can easily choose from Logic's vast array of channel strip settings and instrument presets. :)

  • Hi there, very, very nice article! I have a question or two, which, if you have the time, would be nice to have answered. I understand that ipad2 has HDMI out? I'm looking for a way to have more than just stereo output. Being a musician yourself, you'll get this: I have a 4-piece band, with four vocalists. Drums, bass, keys, guitars, plus the four vocalists. We've recorded many of our own stuff in my studio, and have released some of this. When we do shows, I would like the studio-recorded "missing" tracks (the one that you need eight or ten band-members to be able to play) to sound. THe drummer, bassist, guitarist and pianist each do their part live on stage, and the vocalists do their parts, but, ons some songs we actually DO hva morethan 4 vocal parts sounding (yes, there are only three notes to a basic chord, but when getting into ninths, sus4 with add9, or similar chords where you actually have the option of four to five actual different notes sounding, the four vocalists are too little). Sure, we could have one or more of the musos do a vocal piece or so, BUT, that's not where it ends... We have acoustic guitar lines, pads, sometimes some brass/strings sections or solo cello sections etc sounding, and on most tracks we have at least two, and up to as many as 8 elec guitar parts sounding. Sure when one is live, a four-piece hacks it ok, but still, we would really like to have "some" of those "missing" trakcs sounding. Ok, the traditional, simple solution is: Stereo CD/iPod/Laptop with click on one channel and mixed-down "missing" tracks on other channel, meaning band can follow click, and missing tracks play, although in mono. I would like three outs...one for click, and two for stereo missing tracks. I'm thinking HDMI allows surround, thus at least 5.1 (6), so I could even setup unique in-ear mixes/monitor mixes for the band, the vocalists or such. Point being...is there a relatively straight-forward/simple way (WITHOUT lugging a flat-screen tv with hdmi surround pass-through along) to get this done? Alternatively, is there a way to get MIDI from garage band to trigger a seperate click on a sperate MIDI capable device?
