Let’s say you are working on an iMovie and want to add some music or audio that is NOT builtin. Here are some options:
Setup your personal iTunes AppleID inSettings. Anything you’ve purchased or Synced using iTunes on a Desktop/Laptop will show up on your iPad [eventually] when you click the Audio tab [top right] and select Playlists/Albums/Artists/Songs.
You can record your own audio by clicking the microphone icon, bottom right.
–> So you could record your narration this way
–> You could also play a track on a radio, and just place the iPad near the speaker. It’s low-fi, but might work well enough!
You can also EMAIL an audio file to yourself. If you have an MP3, Wav, or AIFF file that you’d like to use, then just email it to yourself.
–> In the Mail app, open the email. The file[s] should download.
–> Click the one you want to use. It starts playing.
–> Click the EXPORT/”Open in….” button, top right – it looks like the square with the arrow pointing UP. Select iMovie.
–> ….OR in the email message, just click and hold on the audio icon. The “Open in…” box will popup.
–> iMovie will open, and you can select if you’d like to place the file into a new project, or one you’ve been working on.
–> The audio clip will be placed at the beginning of the project. You can move it around [and trim it, etc] just like any other clip.
