How to Record Over an iReal Pro Backing Track in GarageBand

Recording with GarageBand

With today’s technology, there are so many cool ways to record yourself and share your music. So let’s talk about how you can record yourself over a backing track in GarageBand for iOS.

To start, I’m also using the app iReal Pro. This is a fantastic tool that simulates a real-sounding band that can accompany you as you practice. There are a ton of great features on this app, but for me, one of the best parts is that it’s full of backing tracks.

I’ll also show you the EQ and effects I use for the sax in GarageBand.

I’m recording with the Apogee Mic+, and I’m playing on a Jody Jazz HR* 7 which I love and a BostonSax 3.5 reed. The sax is my Yanagisawa WO33.

How many of you use GarageBand? What do you think? Let me know in the comments below how you like to edit using GarageBand.
