Dan Baker - Video Killed the Radio Star (GarageBand Cover)

YouTuber Dan Baker just made the best GarageBand cover I've ever posted to this site. This is incredible! I love the way he combines the use of GarageBand on an iPad, with GarageBand on an iPhone for vocals!

Video Description:

Here's my take on the Buggles' 1979 hit, "Video Killed the Radio Star", using NOTHING but the fantastic on-board sounds of GarageBand for iOS10: so unbelievably powerful...

All vocal parts recorded using the internal mic, with lead vocal processed through the internal guitar amp simulator: the original 1979 vocal was played back through a VOX AC30 guitar amp to get that sound.

Everything here mixed on the iPad as well, with lots of effects not fazing it in the slightest.

"Alchemy" is an expensive sounding synth, also used on Logic Pro X, and the bass sound actually sounds like a Fender Precision.

See my tutorial on Garageband for iOS for further details of using it and feel free to ask questions in the comments box below...
