Apogee ONE – Recording in Garage Band on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch
In this tutorial we will show you how to set up Apogee ONE in GarageBand and begin recording quickly on iPad.
To follow this tutorial you will need:
– iOS version 5.1.1 or greater and a compatible iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
Click the plus icon to start a new project.
For the purpose of this tutorial, choose guitar amp in the Instruments window.
You should now see GarageBand open with a default guitar amp.
Since we created a guitar track in GarageBand, we will plug a guitar into ONE’s quarter-inch instrument cable.
Click on the “Input Option” button, and then select “Input Settings.”
With ONE you can record one instrument and one microphone of your choice at the same time. The instrument input is always on.
For now, select “Internal Mic + Instrument.”
In GarageBand, “Left Channel” is channel 1 and “Right Channel” is channel 2.
Since we plugged into ONE’s instrument input, set the “Input Channel” in GarageBand to “Right Channel.”
ONE can control input and output level with a single knob.
The four icons on the top panel indicate which input or output source you have selected.
We have “instrument” selected, so you will see the guitar icon is lit.
Plug in your headphones or speakers.
Adjust your levels.
Press record in GarageBand’s transport control, and begin recording.
If you want to record vocals or an acoustic instrument, click on the track icon, then click the plus button to add a new track.
Choose “Audio Recorder.”
Make sure input channel is set to “Left Channel” and monitor is set to on.
Change Input Source to “Internal Mic” of you are using ONE’s built in mic, “External Mic” if you are using a dynamic or ribbon mic, and “External 48volt mic” if you are using a condenser mic.
Now adjust levels and record.
