Can anyone help with Garageband?

Post by Catoogie » Mon Feb 18, 2008 7:22 am

My buddy is a composer and not very tech savy, he has a Mac laptop and what he needs to do is, importa a stereo wav into Garageband, and then record a scratch vocal (preferable through his laptops built in mic) then make a stereo wav of both tracks. I know nothing about Garageband so......

Thanks!!

Garageband is extremely simple, just poke around in it for a few minutes and you'll be able to figure out how most things work.

To import an audio file:
Drag the audio file you want to import from the Finder into the timeline.

You can drag the audio file either to a Real Instrument track, or to the empty area below the existing tracks. The audio file appears as a Real Instrument region. If you drag the audio file to the area below existing tracks, a new track is created for the audio file.
