Step 1 of 7: Intro
In this tutorial we’re looking at how you can turn those raw musical ideas into a song.
The application’s default recording mode is loop-based, so it’ll keep looping a particular section until you tell it to stop. That’s fine, but what happens when you want to add an intro, verse, middle eight and ending to your chorus? In this tutorial, we’ll explain how to create new sections, modify or duplicate existing ones, move them around and delete them as necessary.
The result will be a full song that you can listen to, play to your friends or even export to iTunes. We’ll assume you’re starting with a few loops you’ve already recorded, and that you’re familiar with the basics of the software.
