Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Editing software tracks, part of GarageBand Essential Training.
…Now that we have some music recorded, let's…take a look at how GarageBand stored this information.…If you have access to the exercise files, you can…open up the file called…edit_software_track and work along with me.…And let's start by selecting the bass track.…Now as we previously saw with the MIDI region selected, when I open up…the editor, I'll see the notes I played represented as horizontal dots and dashes.…The editor pane is where you work the magic…that turns a shaky performance into a nearly flawless masterpiece.…Now don't…feel like you're cheating if you go in and clean up your music.…There's definitely something to be said for being able to play a whole piano part…or a rhythm guitar line all the way…through with no mistakes, but this rarely happens.…
Even the music you hear on the radio by professional musicians and…vocalists has been edited, chopped up, and created out of multiple takes.…Depending on your own personal philosophy, you might think…that there's nothing as soulless as a perfectly performed song.…
