Record to multiple software instrument tracks
You can record to multiple software instrument tracks simultaneously.
During recording, any adjustments to knobs or other controls in the Smart Controls area are recorded as region-based automation. You can use MIDI Draw to edit the Smart Controls Recording later.
Record to multiple software instrument tracks simultaneously
Click the Record Enable button in the track header of each track you want to record to.
Move the playhead to the point in the ruler where you want to start recording.
GarageBand includes a metronome, which plays a steady beat to help you play in time while recording. You can turn this on or off using the Metronome button in the control bar.
Click the Count-in button in the control bar to have the metronome play a one- or two-bar count-in before recording starts.
Note: For the initial setup, choose Record > Count-in, then choose a measure.
Click the Record button in the control bar (or press R) to start recording.
Use your MIDI keyboard, Musical Typing window, or onscreen music keyboard to play some notes. Record as many cycle passes as you wish.
A new MIDI region appears on each of the record-enabled tracks.
Click the Stop button in the control bar (or press the Space bar) to stop recording.
