Chapter 3. Creating a Podcast > Add music and finishing touches

5. Add music and finishing touches

Now is the time to import any music (see “Legalities” earlier in this chapter) into the background and/or at the beginning and end of the podcast. On the Mac, iTunes makes this very simple, because you can drag and drop files directly from iTunes into your podcast (Figure 3.57). Similarly, you can drag an MP3 or AAC file from the Desktop into GarageBand. When the music is in place, click the tiny inverted triangle under the track name to open the Track Volume control (Figure 3.58). With this control, you can adjust the volume of the track in detail, fading in and out as you please (Figure 3.59).

Figure 3.57. Drag files directly out of iTunes and into GarageBand, if you want. Here, an original version of “Row Row Row Your Boat” is being dragged into GarageBand.
