Import a song from the Music app into GarageBand for iPad
You can import songs from the Music app on your iPad into Tracks view. You can import a song to an existing Audio Recorder or Amp track, or have GarageBand create a new Audio Recorder track for the song.
Songs imported from the Music app do not follow tempo changes you make in GarageBand.
Note: You can only import unprotected songs stored locally on your iPad.

Tap the Loop Browser button in the control bar, then tap Music.
You can search for songs by name, or browse by album, artist, genre, or playlist.

Drag a song from the list to Tracks view. Align the left edge of the song with the bar or beat on the ruler where you want it to start playing.
