What You’ve Learned

  • When you open a new song, you can set the project properties.

  • Project properties include Tempo, Time (time signature), and Key.

  • The default time signature is 4/4, and the default tempo is 120.

  • There are 12 different keys to choose from for a project. The default is C.

  • You can change a project tempo by clicking the Tempo portion of the Time Display and adjusting the Tempo slider.

  • You can record a single-take Software Instrument region or a multipass Software Instrument region.

  • Multipass recording requires using a cycle region to repeat the region you are recording over and over.

  • The metronome clicks once for each beat in a measure and can be used during playback or recording.

  • There are three ways to record Software Instrument regions in GarageBand: with the onscreen keyboard, through Musical Typing, or using an external MIDI keyboard.

  • You can loop a recorded region by clicking and dragging the upper-right corner of the region.

  • You can resize a recorded region by clicking and dragging either of the lower corners of the region.

  • The Track Editor can be used to move, delete, duplicate, or resize notes within a region.

  • The Track Editor can also be used to transpose an entire region, which changes the key of the region.
