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.
