26.8. Cumulative Recording

GarageBand's tricks for people with less-than-stellar musical ability don't stop with the slow-tempo-recording trick and the ability to rerecord certain sections. The Cycle button described earlier is also the key to cumulative recording, in which you record one note at a time, or just a few, building up more complexity to the passage as GarageBand loop-records the same section over and over (Figure 26-7).

This trick is especially useful for laying down drum parts. In real life, drummers are surrounded by different kinds of drums; they're constantly reaching out and twisting to hit the different instruments at different times.
