Learn Garageband for Your iPhone 6 with a Keyboard
Grimm, Leomar Umpad, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. Today we are continuing our series on the instruments you can use in the Garageband application for your iPhone 6.
We are starting off with the Keyboard
The Keyboard is a fundamental instrument of any type of musical play. It is commonly used in every form of music irrespective of genre or a nature. Playing the piano is also a foundation skill that many musicians learned in addition to, or as an alternative to learning how to play the guitar.
To start of with, you just need to get one single press on the Piano
Now the Piano is open you can see basic setup Piano keys and each keynote is labeled on the Keyboard
Here you can see C4
We can give some presses just to hear things play
Now this is where it gets interesting
A single press on a key -let's turn this up about, my apologies. Probably you can't hear that very well. Let get this keyboard back in position.
So, we have our Keyboard
*Pressing on some keys*, Does not really sound fantastic.
Now, will see what a single press will actually give us
*Presses on a series of key*.
*Press the same set of keys*.
We can shift plus up, plus down, zero, minus
We can switch around over
You can switch your notes
You can go to Major, Major Pentatonic, Major Blues, all the way down to a number of different scales.
You can set things up here as you would like them to be
When you are finished and you have what you want, tap the music buttons again
You have the option to setup an Arpeggiator here
However, you would like to give it a little tap to set that up.
You also can start playing or recording something
You can setup the metronome.
If you record something you can tap on the Play button to play it
You have the option, here, of switching to a different area for your notes depending on how you have things setup
You can also add additional instruments to your piano
Use piano 1 and use piano 2. If I click plus I could, for example, have some drums.
Switch back to my instrument
I can go back up to my piano. I could switch back to the piano. I can continue playing and adding music which lets me create different themes and different song.
Now if I tap this down arrow here, I have My Songs which I may be working on
My Instruments or I can tap my Grand Piano.
If I tap on Grand Piano, it is going give me a selection of Pianos
A Grand Piano, a Classical Grand, an Electric Piano, a Classic Rock Organ, a Soul Organ, a Whirly.
I can scroll over as you see here
Different types of Classical Sounds
I have got Lead, Pads and different effects that I want to have
I go back to my Keyboards when I have got what I want
I just press Done and now my Keyboard sounds like that.
If I would like to change my settings, I just tap here in my Settings area
It lets me choose how my Track is
Whether it is a solo, my Track Volume (depending), any Echo or Reverb Levels.
How I am transposing the track whether or not it is moving fast and I have additional Master Effects
Let's give that a tap.
So I can add Echo and Reverb
I can change those from the Default to a particular type of Echo or particular type of Reverb
When I have what I want selected I simply tap done and that takes me back to my main area
As you can see, this is a extremely in depth and complex program for the musician
Those of you who play piano or, any instrument, will probably very much appreciate this. So this concludes our tutorial on how to setup and get started with the basics of the piano function in the Garageband application on your iPhone 6. You have been watching VisiHow and hopefully this been a helpful tutorial for you. Please let us know if we can provide any additional information or support and we will be happy to do so.
