Yesterday’s exciting announcement of Apple’s iPad 2 with the new GarageBand app means that more people are really starting to produce music inside the machine. The simplicity of GarageBand for Mac Users inspired millions of would-be producers to get on the grind with their MacBooks, and now iPad users are going to learn how to sequence music too with the introduction of the GarageBand app for iPad. But one question still remains, how do you record your audio into GarageBand if you are a singer or guitarist? Well, you will still need an audio interface, and IK Multimedia makes two of them at a very low cost…

How do I record vocals and other sounds that require a microphone into my GarageBand app with iPad 2? The iRig Mic from IK Multimedia is a low-cost solution at just $59.99, and the ONLY handheld condenser microphone on the market that will plug directly into your iPad, iPad 2, iPhone, and iPod touch. iRig Mic is ideal for the singer, vocalist and songwriter on the move, but also perfect for recording speeches, instruments, performances or other sound sources in the studio, on stage or in the field.

Now, depending on the coolness of the effects for vocals inside GarageBand for iPad , you may want to record your vocals in another iPhone or iPad app like VocaLive (has 12 effects for vocals, like morphing, reverb and choir and more) and then import them into GarageBand. Same thing with your guitar or bass tracks…you might want to use AmpliTube for guitar amp sounds, or even GrooveMaker to create a drum loop and import that into GarageBand. Remember, you are only limited to your imagination (and your pocket, but @ $4.99, GarageBand for iPad is pretty affordable DAW from iTunes) when you are producing music. Use ALL the apps, and all the tools to make your masterpiece!

How do I record my guitar/bass/keyboard into Garageband app for iPad 2? The iRig plug adapter is a low-cost solution at just $39.99. The iRig interface adapter is the easiest way to get your instrument’s signal into iPhone/iPod touch/iPad. Simply plug iRig into your mobile device, plug your instrument into the iRig, plug headphones or amplifier to the output and you are ready to rock! This is the same recording interface that Mark Hoppus from Blink 182, Richard Fortus from Guns N Roses and Stefan Lessard from Dave Matthews Band use, and wouldn’t leave home without (and I know, because they all told me).
