Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Understand region types, part of GarageBand Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Before we start looking at creating music…I wanna quickly explain another…important concept in GarageBand.…I've opened up a project that contains several tracts…featuring different types of instruments.…Each time you make a recording in GarageBand,…your recordings are represented by these colored rectangles…we see here called regions.…Every time you record a real or software instrument,…or place a loop on a track,…you create a region on that track.…And as you can see here,…there are different colors of regions.…And they're not set up that way just to look nice.…Each color represents a different type of region.…
It may seem like a trivial matter at first,…but it's actually very important,…because you can do certain types of edits…and changes to some regions, but not to others.…I know that sounds vague and mysterious,…but it'll start to make sense as we go along.…For now just note that green regions…are regions that were created either…from recorded software instruments,…software instrument loops, or imported midi files.…
