Make Music with GarageBand dance loops

iPad music appsGarageBand is a powerful music making app that comes freeĀ  for iPad or iPhone.

There are lots of areas to explore, from virtual instruments like guitar, keyboard, drums and orchestra.

This week I am going to show you how to make dance music using loops.

  • You can swap sounds in and out
  • You can layer your music to build it up.
  • There are lots of live effects possible (see the FX button)
  • Take turns with someone else adding in or changing the sounds one at a time.
  • As well as playing it live, you can record it and listen back later.
  • Use it as a soundtrack for a video.

Good for: This would be a good activity to create fun music to dance to or to create a party atmosphere and share with others.
