Rhythm Recording Project

Summary –

This project was a way to show what we know about Control Timings with Groove Tracks, Follow the Rhythm of another beat, etc. I chose to show what I know with screen shots and a Voice Thread from a PowerPoint. This was pretty fun, because this was a project in which we could show what we know in our own ways.

Evidence –


Within the project, I mess up on the definitions of Record a Apreggiated Drum Track and Make Audio & MIDI Regions Loop Ready. For Record a Apreggiated Drum, this is more of changing the cycles in order to get the specific sounds you are wanting to hear from the track. The other one is Make Audio & MIDI Regions Loop Ready is more of putting the loop button on and listening to your MIDI, this is to make sure there aren’t missing any beats between each part.

What I Learned –

What I learned for this project was how to use the tools in GarageBand. Looking at it, I had no idea what to do or how to do it. I’m so glad I learned! I had a few troubles in trying to explain what the concept was, you can tell that I stutter every once in a while, but that’s probably just nerves. These packets help me a ton!
