I'm really enjoying these GarageBand tutorials by Arvid Sandgren. His presentation style is very simple, but he still manages to convey all the information you need to get the cover version made.
You simply cannot produce this kind of thing on a Mac or PC, not without extra hardware at least. Despite what some still profess, the iPad really is one of the finest content creation devices ever made, and we believe it's only just getting started. 2015 should be an epic year for iPad owners.

This video shows how to use your carefully crafted BIAS tone with Apple's Inter-App audio feature built in to the marvellous GarageBand. We hope you find it as useful we did.
Francis (TelevatorMuzak on YouTube) is something of a GarageBand master. His covers are among the most lovingly crafted iPad songs we have ever encountered. If you're new to GarageBand, or even if you think you know all it has to offer, we strongly advise you to listen to all of Francis' work on YouTube. Below is a selection of some of our favourites.
Few iPad apps demonstrate the remarkable possibilties offered by the blending of touch screen and computer quite as much as GarageBand. The Smart Strings section in GarageBand for iOS is probably where this is made most obvious. Smart Strings does take a little getting used to. This excellent free Smart Strings tutorial video may help.
We used Smart Strings to create the sound track in the video shown above. Just a little bit of practice pays big dividends! Why not give it a go and be sure to let us know if you create something special.
In an almost unprecedented move, Apple has updated GarageBand to add support for the extremely popular Audiobus app. Audiobus enables inter-app workflow by offering live app-to-app audio streaming. Within 3 months, Audiobus has welcomed aboard over 100 iOS apps. With GarageBand support we imagine that just about every iOS developer will be looking to add Audiobus compatibility to their music creation apps.
We've tested GarageBand with a handful of popluar Audiobus compatible apps and everything worked as expected. Audiobus is an essential purchase. We could be witnessing the birth of a new standard here. Exciting times!
