We live in a mobile world. If you’re like most musicians, it can be difficult to find time to sit down in the studio and make your music. Plus, you never know when or where inspiration could strike, and you should always be prepared.
Luckily for you, we live in the 21st century. You can ride the subway, work your 9-to-5 job, and still find time to lay down your latest beats.
With technology, you can spend your morning commute playing a baby grand piano, having a jam session with your bandmates, or mixing and editing your newest tracks.
Whether you use your smartphone, laptop or tablet, you can download a variety of useful apps that can help you pursue audio production while also maintaining your other responsibilities.
Just for Beginners
Just getting started? Garageband™ is an Apple® music app that gives you access to a wide range of instruments that can be played easily via your iPad™. You can also have jam sessions with up to three friends via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, record music, mix and edit your songs, and then share them with friends on Facebook. Plus, this easy app can even teach you how to play music if you’re starting audio production classes.
For the Audio Production Pros
There are millions of apps to choose from if you’re experienced in audio production. Some of the more popular ones have on-the-go multi-track recorder features. You can use calibrated meters and faders, stereo output meters, bounce and mix features, as well as Wi-Fi to create almost any track no matter where you happen to be when inspiration strikes.
