Lesson 3. Working with Software Instruments > Recording a Simple Drum Part

Recording a Simple Drum Part

You have listened to the drum and percussion loops in the Loop Browser, and the regions used in the songs for the previous lessons. Now it’s your turn to create a drum region of your own. This exercise will be challenging, especially if rhythm isn’t one of your specialties. Fortunately, GarageBand comes with a built-in metronome to help you.

Turning on the Metronome

A metronome is a device used by musicians to keep time. The metronome clicks at a steady beat based on the tempo of the project. You can use the clicks as a guide for “practicing” instrument parts during playback and for recording them.
