How do I Record Onto my iPad

Welcome to this article on recording onto your iPad! If you are looking for the best quality audio recording, use your iPad with this article to get advice on how to record onto it. We will discuss some very useful points about the availability of apps in the app store that can help you create music or voice recordings onto your portable device, tips and tricks, and where to find them.

Is There any app That lets me Record Onto the iPad

There are several apps that you could use to record onto the iPad, but the problem with these is that they only do one thing. I’m sure you’ve heard of iRig Recorder HD , formerly known as Tape-a-talk . This works great for recording voice memos, and it has features like noise reduction so your recordings sound clear. There are others like Recordium, which allows you to record anything and has an editing feature where you can cut out what you don’t need. The problem with apps like this is that they only do one thing; there’s no way to combine them or use them for serious recording purposes. You’ll also find that most of these apps aren’t free which can be a bit of a put off for some people.

What About Garageband

Garageband is the most widely used iOS app in the music industry as well as being one of the best apps to use if you want to record something onto your iPad. It is available from the App Store and it’s free! Even though it’s free, it has some amazing features and capabilities. Garageband is a great way of recording voice, but you can also integrate other audio sources to create complete songs if you want to get a little creative!

How to Create Voice Memos on iPad

You can easily create a voice memo using Garageband on your iPad. All you have to do is press the plus sign in the top right corner of the screen, and follow these simple instructions: Press ‘New Track’. Press an instrument title, such as Voice. Press Record!

You now have a track with your recorded voice onto the iPad, but this has been recorded as if you were singing it out loud. If you want to change this to just the audio of your recording without all the background noise, press ‘i’ in Garageband and then press ‘Record Settings’. Press Voice Over IP or Headset Mic. Press Done! You now have your recording as an audio file on your iPad.

Where is the Microphone on iPad

You might be wondering where the microphone on iPad is located. Well this is on the corner at the top of your iPad, but it’s not very obvious. You’ll see a small hole that you can put your finger into to change the volume while you are using an app or playing something through your speakers or headphones.

Why is This not Obvious

Apple designed the iPad so that it has no buttons on the outside to reduce its size, and therefore if you want to change volume or anything else for that matter, you have to do it through software. Most people ignore this tiny hole at the top of their iPad because they don’t know what it’s used for.

This makes it very difficult to record anything on your iPad.

Moral of the story? If you are recording anything, make sure that the sound is on the loudest setting possible so that you get a good quality recording. You can actually connect an external microphone or even use your headphones with a built-in microphone if you want to have more control over the recording.


Garageband is by far the most used app in the music community, and it’s also arguably one of the best apps for recording.

However, there are several voice recorder apps that have been created to specifically be used on iPads. These apps have lots of different great features that can help you record your audio in a way that makes it sound professional.

Search for Voice Recorder apps in the App Store, and you’ll find a selection of free and paid apps that will enable recording in high quality audio. You can even combine these in Garageband or use Garageband just to record if you prefer!
