Editing An Audio File In GarageBand

You can use GarageBand as a basic audio editor. You can import most standard audio formats into a project and then proceed to trim, split or re-arrange the track. You can also use filters and add sound effects and loops. Then you can export the finished product as a new audio file.

    So is there a way that you can export from garage band to iTunes as a ringtone, and edited a track from iTunes library (song or sound) for your iPhone ringtone.

    Thanks

    Can you edit an audio track to play faster or slower with GarageBand?

    Hi Gary,
    Can one import an interview from a cassette player to Garageband? And later export to iMovie or Final Cut?
    Thanks

      You’ll need the proper hardware. An audio-to-USB interface to connect a cassette player to your Mac. Then set the audio input to that device. Then record in GarageBand as you play the cassette. Stop by a computer store for help picking out a device.

    Hey Gary, do you have a recommendation for a small midi keyboard that’s compatible with Garage Band IOS on iPad Air?
    Thanks so much,

      I haven’t tried any but the one I have. I have an older M-Audio keyboard and like it. Their current line looks good.

    Hey I’m doing a project. I would like to know How I can convert one of my voice tracks to a demon voice. Any idea on how to do that?

      Sure. Just create the real instrument (vocal) track and record your voice. Then open the library (button at top left) and add a voice effect, like Fuzz or Compressed or something. Then play with the settings for that effect.

    So I have adjusted the volume for a quieter region of my audio track but i need more volume. Can I use the EQ (gain) for just a specific track or region of my track? Or is the Gain just for the overall track?
    Thanks for your help!

      Try it. But you probably won’t get much. You may need to bring the original audio file into a pure audio editor like Audacity first, adjust it there with a filter which will also distort the sound (if the volume is too low, you have no choice). Then bring it into GarageBand.
