mainWhen it comes to music creation, there are few better apps than GarageBand on iPad. With a range of fantastic digital instruments that you can strum or tap to your heart’s content, there is also a range of Smart Instruments that play small riffs or melodies based on the chords you tap. When you’ve created your finished project, with up to 32 tracks of instruments included at once, you can then share your creation to a range of services, including the popular site SoundCloud.

This brilliant option enables people to listen to your work from anywhere with just a single tap or click on the play button. It’s the perfect way to get your music heard by a wider audience. Here’s how to do it in four simple steps.
