    You ask a simple question but the answer is complicated. Here are a few ideas.

    1
    You might be able to run iReal b in the background and a recording app will record your playing (or singing) and the audio from iReal b as it is being played. (One possible problem is that your Android device might not have enough processor power to do this.)
    However this will result in a inferior quality recording due to the poor microphone built-in to the Android device and small speaker(s) in the device playing iReal b output.

    2
    another possibility is playing the output of iReal b through a guitar amp (for instance) and recording to your computer via a USB microphone which picks up the amp and your playing. Or if you have an MP3 recorder, it could be used to record.

    3
    if you have multi-track software on your computer, you could record the output of iReal b playing the chart (in real time) to a track on your computer, then recording yourself on another.

    4
    iOS users can record just using their iPhone (iPad etc.) by saving the iReal b chart as an audio file, importing it into a multitrack recorder app onto one track, then listen to this via headphones while recording a second track - you playing or singing.
    However currently iReal b for Android v1.1.2 cannot save an audio file. This is coming in a future update - see:

    ----
    in reference to your question, iReal b does not record audio.

    Default Problem recording audio

    Im experimenting problems when recording some audio with iReal Pro. In the past Ive used this feature before but this problem is new...
    The output audio recorded through my phone mic is out of sync with the audio generated by the "virtual" band...

    When recording, I play and all sounds in perfect sync... but output audio is a mess...

    Any hints?

    Default Does recording only work with the iPad/iPhone mic?

    I tried to record my guitar using a Roland Duo Capture EX audio interface. When I try tapping Record, I do not hear the guitar. It seems Record only works with the iPad/iPhone mic, not with USB audio input. Is this correct?

    Yes correct, it is only designed for a basic quick convenient recording using the built-in mic.

    If you want to do more than this using your Duo Capture you would export the audio to GarageBand or similar and record your guitar on to another track, (plus you would have control on mixing, effects, adding additional tracks etc.)

    Did you read the link in the post before yours?
    Have you tried recording using (wired) earphones and the built-in mic?
