Learn Garageband for Your iPhone 6 with Guitar Amp

Edited by Grimm, Leomar Umpad, Dougie, Eng

Hello and welcome to VisiHow. Today we are going to show you how you can get started with the guitar amplifier of the iPhone 6 Garageband application.

Steps

  1. 1
    This is a default application that comes in every iPhone 6
    .
    It will allow you to plug-in the guitar and get amplifier fixed electronically. You probably do not have that even if you are professional musician. The likelihood you are having as many amplifier as you can find in the guitar section is a fairly slim. It's a great way of playing through and identifying a particular sound or vintage instruments that you really like. You say, "Wow this amp is really great I want to see what real one sounds like."

    You may have to scroll over when you open the app as it defaults to the Keyboard
    .
    We scroll passed the Drums and tap on Guitar Amp.

    This is going to open up our Guitar Amplifier
    .

    Now you see here at the bottom when you go back the Pop song and it says you are going to have the English Combo
    .

  6. 6
    Now if I tap on this (two taps) it will take me where I can change each of the settings
    .
    I can move them around with my finger just like dialing a regular amplifier setting.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    That is for every bit of it
    .
    My Presence, my built-in Reverb setting, Speed, Depth, Trebele, my Mids, my Base. Those of you who are guitar players will immediately be familiar with this.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    When you are done double tap anywhere and it takes you back (to the previous screen)
    .

    If you want to use different amplifier, then you switch over
    .

  10. 10
    Here we have the Vintage Stack
    .
    Which those of you who are players will immediately recognize as an old school martial.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    And if it says Vintage Track, then you are talking about 2, 4 tens stack on one another which is an amazing sound
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    Again, you get all those old school martial presets for your classic two band
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    Switch over, now you got the more Modern Stack
    .
    We got of a little bit electronics in there as well. Those of you who are familiar with hard key will immediately recognize this as something similar to a hard key setup, or one of the more offbeat versions.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    Now, you scroll over here and we've got Stadium Stack
    .
    Again this just looks like a costume martial or maybe one of the older fenders but that depends which one amp you are using.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    Here you got one of the really old school martial style amps
    .
    Eric Clapton was well-known for playing soul concerts with this monsters. This gives you a specific sounds they call it "Blue Sound" here. It's a little bit more raspy rough sounds but the trebles are very high and clear. It is actually probably my preferred amp.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Slide over and now we got a Sunshine Stack
    .
    I am not sure how that sounds but does look a little hippies - if you will. A big a happy grateful dead kind of letters and maybe that's a similar sound. You will have to pop your guitar and then see.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    Swipe back through and we get over into Fender Town
    .
    This looks just like and old fender amp. Now, we're at the end.

    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    Now, we got a Small Tweed Combo which is an owner amp
    .
    The name escapes me at the moment with this type of amp but it is in there with the martial and the fender era.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    Swipe back over here and if you want to, you have the option to set-up how you tune in Up or Down what it is
