From my experience with Garageband, it's worked really well most of the time when I work on new songs with VoiceOver. But I've also ran into some accessibility problems with it too, and can understand the frustration some people on here are experiencing. However, I'm thankful for what Apple has done so far to make their products accessible for the blind and visually impaired, especially since unlike the PC, nobody has to spend more money on a screen reader and install it. Lol.
I have recently started using Garage Band to record and pre-mix a music production. this app is a gem! I would never have thought that VoiceOver users can create music so easily. Of course, there is a bit of work involved to find one's way around the interface; but with time, it works really well.
I am facing two tasks at the moment which I would like to do using VoiceOver; maybe one of the more advanced users will be able to help me.
• I would like to adjust the time period to fade out a song. There are many tutorials on the web how to do this, but they all use the mouse and drag dots around. Is there a way to fade in and out using VoiceOver?
• I have recorded a song where half a bar is missing in transition from the chorus to the following verse; i.e. the verse is not supposed to begin on the full bar but on the last syllable of the chorus lyrics. So the beat counts: 1-2-3-4-1-2-Verse.
Is there a way to cut out those two beats from the last bar of the chorus? When moving regions around, the drummer just plays a fill and then starts the normal beat on the full bar anyway.
I would be happy if somebody could point me in the right direction.
All the Best and Greetings from Ireland,
Hello! Garageband newby, was wondering how to quantise?
Thanks in advance.
Garageband is best music app recommened for ios users. It is the best music composing app for ios users you can record audio of guitars.
GarageBand is free and has been for a while. The app entry should be updated to reflect this. Is there anyway that users can update the info?
Nice write you! What you say the last GarageBand version about?
Do you too have difficulty to modify track's contain? At least, I find a lot "button" alabeled, so VoiceOver says only "Button". Where are the notes I'm played? How can I recognize that? And how can I correct or modify thatt? I'm talking about version for Mac.
Thanks a lot.
P.s.: Please, keep to write at Apple Accessibility Team for the news accessible release.
