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.
