How to have almost unlimited freedom.

 

DISCLAIMER: This post does mention another app. I am not advertising, because Caustic clearly surpasses GarageBand. I am simply stating the fact that they are a beautiful thing when combined. Also, CloudConvert isn't a music making app, it is very helpful for this though.

Are you an iPhone user with no access to a computer? Do you want to share your song or get it as an mp3 file? Do you want to make a complex song that changes tempo, or uses more than 14 instruments? Well then I have an amazing discovery for you.

Did you know that GarageBand is able to connect with Caustic? Did you know that GarageBand can take your Caustic tracks and open them in other apps? With the beautiful capabilities of song-making in Caustic, and the exporting options of GarageBand, you can share your music without a computer!

You can also combine Caustic songs! So let's say you make an extremely complicated verse for a song, but you took up too much space for the rest of the song. Simply save that verse, and then make whatever you want next in a different song file, then combine them in GarageBand! Then you can go back to the verse, change it however you want, and reuse it if you want to!

Then you can rename the track IN GarageBand, open it in another app (such as CloudConvert [free as well]), convert it to mp3, and then share it however you want!

Once again, I am not advertising for other apps, I'm just giving some options to people like me :P

How does the GarageBand -

How does the GarageBand - Caustic transfer work? Do you have to export the track from Caustic and import in GB as a .wav file or something like that? Or are you still able to edit the .caustic-file afterwards?

Feeling collaborative or just need help? You can always message me: einsyui@gmail.com
I'm also always happy about messages on soundcloud!" --╬▒lpha Yui

Basically once you finish and

Basically once you finish and save your Caustic track, you close Caustic and open GarageBand. Add a new song, add an "inter-audio app" instrument. Select Caustic, and open your song when Caustic opens automatically. Go back to GarageBand, change the length of the song to about five measures more than your Caustic song. Make sure the metronome is on, and hit the record button. Try to match the song with the metronome, and hit play before you run out of space (hence the extra five measures). Don't expect it to sound good while recording, but the finished product is full quality. Finally trim the waveform in GarageBand, rename it, and then "share" the song in "other app". I suggest CloudConvert or The Audio Converter (paid app), convert to mp3, bam! And you can still change the Caustic song, you can actually record it more than once! You can record it, change it, then record it again as a separate thing! It's also completely possible to add more than one Caustic file and layer things.

How long have u had this

How long have u had this garageband??

Ok, the underlay question is, was this feature ( s ) on the previous garageband mobile, as before logic pro X??

I ask cause my lil younger brother, ((( he'll get it two-gether won day!!! ))) said alot of garageband change recently win pro x came out.

And he stop fooling with it cause it dish him a series of curves. Kinda devolved learning curves two doing music. (( he quickly got rid of the app as soon as he said he tried everything about the app. Sum yrs later got rid of i phone all two-gether. )) he didn't wanna heed about caustic then. Soooo i'm just really peacing thangs two-gether.

How serious someone can be and give dat much frustration so effortlessly....
Maybe i'm not being compassionate enuff being big older brother. (( possible )) dammmmm sure is alot two consider, hmm.....

I've had GarageBand for about

I've had GarageBand for about a month now. I don't know about the changes from the previous versions, I just know that it works like a charm now. I also don't know much about Logic Pro, being that I don't have it (it may be a computer thing, I don't own a computer). I use only an iPhone, and I simply came across this trick when I was desperate to share my tunes. Luckily I found it, and here I am.

Ok. This is solid. Well,

Ok. This is solid. Well, garageband is apple's basic music software/app. Logic pro x?? Is the advance software. If u get the garageband is software mode it's weak at best of comparison of what all u can do on it. It's kinda a dumb-down of logic how much more u can really engineer your production.

i was usinv garageband alot on software at my public library's digital studio on a mac g3 at one point in time.

But the advancment of logic pro 9 to pro x has killed what all u could do and made logic dat much more.
