TIP: The sound produced by GarageBand will sound much better over headphones, or connected to a good quality amplifier via an audio cable. Don't play the audio wirelessly (e.g. via a bluetooth speaker) as this will produce a disconcerting amount of latency. Connect to your speaker via an audio cable instead.
In the description below the Single-Key version of the App is used to demonstrate the setup.
If you using the Multi-Key version, you can still use these instructions to get setup with Garageband.
In Multi-Key mode you will be able to choose the notes you play via the 8 key grid, rather than playing through a set melody via a single key.
TIP: If you are using the Multi-Key version of the App you can still activate Single-Key mode.
