5. Recording Real Instruments > Set Up to Record

Set Up to Record

GarageBand '09 has three ways to get Real Instruments into your song—you can Use a Real Instrument Track, Use an Electric Guitar Track, or Record with a Microphone. All the options can get confusing, so follow the flowchart on the next page to get started. The yellow boxes are clickable.

Use a Real Instrument track

In this section, I explain how to record an electric instrument that you can plug directly into your interface—for example, an electric bass (or guitar), an electric keyboard, or an electric violin. I talk about electric guitars in the next topic, Record an Electric Guitar, since GarageBand now has a specific track type with new amp and effect models. Likewise, if you want to record an acoustic instrument—a piano, acoustic guitar, harmonica, trombone, and so on—or want to record through your amplifier, I tell you how in Record with a Microphone.
