PSA: Don't update to iOS 12.4 if you use apps in AB output slot or IAA apps that use the mic.

Garageband Query

edited October 2013 in General App Discussion

Hi guys, have just discovered Garageband and it's awesome apart from the inability to create decent drum patterns.
Any hoo, just wanted to use a voice memo from my iPhone as a sample into Garageband.
two questions, is this possible and how can I transfer the voice memo from iPhone to iPad since when synching my iPad with iTunes, it will not move the memo across even though it's in the iTunes library.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.


  • I don't know if AirDrop works with voice memos, but if so, that would probably be the easiest way. If not, just use a cable with 1/8" jacks on each end and connect the iPhone to the Ipad, start recording in the mic I/P of GB, and then play your voice memo.

  • Sounds like a great idea since Airdrop isn't working for me.
    With Bluetooth switched on for iPhone and iPad, they don't see each other and thus can't pair!!
    Will give the audio jack idea a try.
    Thanks again funjukie :)
