Thanks for this timely message. Just so happened that I had students who needed to do this today. They recorded an audio track using other programs on the ipad (Audio Boo) and (iTalk) and sure enough wanted to add this into an IMOVIE.
So far we have been untethered to a computer with these ipads. I looked and looked and surfed and surfed and have found nothing but frustration that this can not be done!
It seems that going from GarageBand to Imovie should be seamless.
If anyone else stumbles across a work around, please please share!
Thanks Brad for your post.
Delusionally optimistic that there is a way (or will be soon)

I've been working on iMovie and GarageBand on the iPad. What I've found to be most difficult is transferring files back and forth from my Mac. (I'm thinking about students who do not have email accounts, although the process I've outlined is pretty complex for them)The GarageBand files on the iPad aren't seen on the iMovie App as a song without transferring out, massaging, and transferring back. I have discovered that I can move any .MOV files from my Mac over to my iPad and edit them on the iMovie app there.
I may have made things way too complex than needed. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Do send to me off list. Thanks!!
