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.
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."
To get started with, we open the Garageband application and then we just going to tap one time on the Guitar Amp.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Here we have the Vintage Stack.
Which those of you who are players will immediately recognize as an old school martial.
And if it says Vintage Track, then you are talking about 2, 4 tens stack on one another which is an amazing sound.
Again, you get all those old school martial presets for your classic two band.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Swipe back through and we get over into Fender Town.
This looks just like and old fender amp. Now, we're at the end.
Now, you can swipe back through this.
Remember, we started here on the English Combo so we swipe over here and see again another fend - a Blacklace Combo.
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.
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.
So you can say "TTTTTTT".
Or you can go "OOOOOOOO".
Each of those are notes that will automatically be picked and would let me know, "Hi, you are playing this." That is our little tuner for.
Here, you can tap to change you pedals.
You got your two rows of peddles.
You can tap on a pedal and you have other selection of pedals that you can put in.
Each of this pedals will change your sound.
Just like pedals two. They look like little peddle cases.
Finally, you've got your master control here.
It let's you set everything up. Those of you who are familiar with master set-up where you have one amp controlling a number of different speakers will understand that.
Tap on another settings.
Just like our other sections, you can set your reverb, your echo and your Master effects then tap on Done.
With your expectation, you simply tap here (amp icon on the upper-left).
Now you see we have some drums, we have your basic amp.
If you want double tap it, it will take you directly back to the previous screen.
Here is the last one as well.
You can get your Input Level here on Input Settings.
Those of you who maybe wondering, you do not actually have to plug in.
You can, and it is recommended that plug in, but you don't have to. So you can take any one of this amps and can actually just simply play your guitar and let the amp up.
Let me show you.
Let's take this fender amp here. Let's give it a double tap to get into our things.
Let's see what we want to do.
Increase the Presence a bit.
Increase the Reverb a bit.
Speed it up - just a touch.
Give it a quite a bit and more Depth because I like that rich sound. Mids are OK, Bases are OK.
Now, we are going to go Back and we are going to tap our Pedals.
Let's go to Blue Echo - and see.
Let's turn that auto-funk on or off.
Do you see we got a red switch - off, on.
I would tap out of it.
Let's go tap pedals and go back to the amps.
Now as you can see a little flash over here.
So, I am going to offend you ears and make some guitar sounds with my mouth because I do not have a guitar.
*Playing guitar sounds with mouth*
Got to load a country/bluesy track. Now, play it and you will be surprise that it does not sound as horrible as it just did.
*Recorded sound is now playing*
This is what you can do the guitar amp setting on your iPhone 6 using Garageband.
