Editing and arranging your song

2
00:00:03,303 --> 00:00:05,005
You create a song in GarageBand

3
00:00:05,005 --> 00:00:07,941
by adding loops and recordings to the timeline.

4
00:00:07,941 --> 00:00:10,577
Each piece appears as a region,

5
00:00:11,911 --> 00:00:15,315
you can drag a region so it starts
at a different point in time,

6
00:00:15,315 --> 00:00:18,251
or drag it to a different track of the same type.

7
00:00:18,251 --> 00:00:20,320
Hold down the option key
when you drag a region

8
00:00:20,320 --> 00:00:22,889
to create a copy of that region.

9
00:00:22,889 --> 00:00:25,025
You can loop the region so the music repeats

10
00:00:25,025 --> 00:00:27,327
as many times as you want.

11
00:00:27,327 --> 00:00:29,963
Hold the pointer over the upper right corner,

12
00:00:29,963 --> 00:00:31,898
when it changes to a loop pointer,

13
00:00:31,898 --> 00:00:34,968
drag the corner to make it as long as you'd like.

14
00:00:34,968 --> 00:00:37,137
You can split a region by putting the play head

15
00:00:37,137 --> 00:00:38,805
over the point you want to split it

16
00:00:38,805 --> 00:00:43,276
and then choosing "Edit", "Split".

17
00:00:45,045 --> 00:00:46,413
To delete a region

18
00:00:46,413 --> 00:00:49,449
click it and then press the delete key.

19
00:00:49,449 --> 00:00:52,519
GarageBand allows you to define
the different sections of your song

20
00:00:52,519 --> 00:00:56,122
and then rearrange the sections
with a simple drag-and-drop.

21
00:00:56,756 --> 00:01:00,693
Start by choosing "Show Arrange Track"
from the "Track" menu.

00:01:01,961 --> 00:01:04,631
To add a range region click the add button

23
00:01:04,664 --> 00:01:07,100
and then drag the right edge
of the new range region

24
00:01:07,100 --> 00:01:10,470
to cover the music in that section of the song.

25
00:01:10,470 --> 00:01:12,038
Name the selected range region

26
00:01:12,038 --> 00:01:14,874
by clicking it and typing a name.

27
00:01:16,276 --> 00:01:17,877

29
00:01:19,312 --> 00:01:21,147
and move it to a new location.

30
00:01:21,147 --> 00:01:23,183
The music and all of the tracks in that part

31
00:01:23,183 --> 00:01:25,652
of the timeline moves with it.

32
00:01:25,685 --> 00:01:29,255
Arrange regions make it easy to hear
different variations of your song

33
00:01:29,255 --> 00:01:31,825
