dick, My OS El capitan wont support current version of GB.

I'll try to track down a disc version of ilfe 11 and try an install from there
Strangely the volumes settings on all old songs has changed so I am having to go through all songs and do a quick remix as well as re set certian drum kits as I cant use a versin of EZdrumer lite and drumcore 3 anymore as they dont exist
hey ho



Dontcha just love upgrades (or NOT upgrades)

My old iMac did the decent thing and exploded after 13 years. Which although it was expensive to replace at least all the apps actually work now. So many apps didn't work under the very old OS and I couldn't load the latest OS.

Good luck with your updates!

Re:upgrading GB
Tuesday, June 11 2019 @ 04:17 PM CDT

I have been using Garageband since 2005 and the constant updates have frustrated me to no ends. I realize I am in the minority here where it is much more about being a technician who can reproduce full productions and sound like a full band or a soundtrack for a movie etc.

Me I am just a failed singer/songwriter who is much more into learning to play my instrument, the acoustic guitar, and trying to sing on key while writing songs which I hope have been somewhat original.

So all I really desire from GB is a nice clean sound that can handle playing guitar and singing on one track and occasionally one or two overdubs from other instruments I play or singing harmony with myself.

It doesn't even provide that anymore or else I just can't figure out how to set it up to get that. And even the little I have used the electronic instruments, I have experienced the same as you that the various GB's are not backwardly compatible and that when you try to plug in your old GB file that it is missing the electronic sound effects.

If anyone knows a very simple recorder for the Mac that will do what I want it to without a lot of learning, please let me know. I do need the ability to record multiple tracks and maybe minimal effects like reverb and echo.

Audacity is a FREE Multi-track Recorder and Editor and fairly simple to use.

Compilation of GB Loops, instruments downloads
Saturday, June 22 2019 @ 09:59 AM CDT

Apple has gone back to hiding everything and making it a royal PITA to acquire things. In GB for example unless you either search for something that's missing and click it or find the super secret activation download link it just sits there with the default loops, etc. there are several downloads that could trigger depending upon the version or point version of GB you have.

There are numerous articles detailing how to do both of those things to trigger the downloads. I am kind of obsessive about having the lops and so forth installed so I have pursued them and learned a few things. The old iLife stored loops in one location and the newer versions use yet another. So it can be annoying if it doesn't find things dragged over. You also need to rebuild your loop library.

Below are the links I've compiled (valid as of 2016 so some may not be now and there are probably new ones) for downloading GB content. To download some of these originally, I used an article titles something like 'downloading GB content with Charles proxy'. You may or may not need it. Again, I haven't messed with these since 2016. I'm including the notes as well. You should be able to post the links you want into your browser and away you go. The download should provide the installer package. You can then install or dig into the package. If you choose to try installing everything then you might do it on a second machine and then not duplication, etc.
