Forum Question: Downloading Garageband Loops In Mountain Lion

Gary, in Garageband ’11 I have attempted to download the additional loops. When I select the download option I’m taken to the App Store update page. On the App Store update page I’m told that there are no updates. Am I missing something or is there a bug. I’m running OS X 10.8.1 and I have Garageband 6.0.5.

    For those that are curious, the way you do this is to play around in GarageBand and try to use one of the loops that is grayed-out. Then it prompts you to download the additional loops via Software Update.
    So when you get into the Mac App Store, it appears as if nothing has happened. But do two things: first, make sure you are signed in. Second, check for updates and unfinished downloads. (Store, Check for Unfinished Downloads).
    You should see the update there that includes the GarageBand loops. You can then trigger it to start again, if it isn’t downloading already. It is huge, so it may take a long while.

    I think there was something messed up somewhere, because I tried again today and everything work just fine. It only took about 15 minutes to download all of the extra loops.
