Zooming In to and Out of the Timeline

Now that you have identified the different regions and tracks, let's zoom in for a closer look.

You can zoom in to and out of the Timeline by using the Zoom slider, located in the lower-left corner of the window, or by using a keyboard shortcut.

GarageBand zooms in to your current playhead position in the Timeline. For this exercise, let's start by zooming in to the beginning of the song.


Press the Z key to move the playhead to the beginning of the Timeline (if it is not there already).


Locate the Zoom slider in the lower-left corner of the window.


Drag the slider to the right to zoom in to the Timeline at the playhead position. As you zoom in, the tracks in the Timeline get longer, and you can see more detail within a track.
