Garageband is an amazing application for creating music. With its simple and intuitive interface, you can easily create your own original songs and share them with the world. But what if you want to put your Garageband songs on YouTube? Fortunately, it’s not as hard as it may seem. Here’s a quick guide to help you get started!

First, make sure that you have the “exclusive” rights to the GarageBand loops that you are using in your song. If not, then it’s possible that you won’t be able to monetize them on YouTube. However, if you just want to share your music without any worries of copyright infringement, then this shouldn’t be a problem.

Next, capture the audio from your computer and import it into GarageBand. To do this, open the Documents app and tap the Safari button in Documents. Go to a Youtube to mp3 converter and search for the video you’re looking for or enter its URL. Tap the download button and wait until it downloads. Then open up GarageBand and select Share > Export Song to Disk from the menu bar at the top of your screen. Rename the exported file in the Save As field and choose a format (AAC, MP3, AIFF, or WAVE) from the Where pop-up menu.

Afterward, export your song as an audio movie by selecting File > Movie > Export Audio to Movie from GarageBand’s menu bar. Choose a preset quality from its Preset pop-up menu and enter a name for the movie along with its location before clicking Save. Now simply upload this movie file onto YouTube just like any other video!

That’s all there is to it! With these steps, you’ll be able to easily put your own original Garageband songs on YouTube so that everyone can enjoy them! Thanks for reading!
