Lesson 5. Working with Apple Loops
Apple Loops are prerecorded music files that are designed to repeat (loop) over and over seamlessly as a pattern. Loops are commonly used for drum beats, rhythm parts, and other repeating musical sections within a song. GarageBand comes with over 1000 prerecorded Apple Loops.
Apple Loops are incredibly flexible instrument regions that can be cut, copied, pasted, edited, transposed, and repeated to create a song or enhance your recorded tracks.
To extend your loop library, you can also add third-party loops, as well as Apple Loops from Soundtrack or the Jam Pack expansions for GarageBand. Another exciting new feature in GarageBand 2 is the ability to now save your recordings (Software Instruments and Real Instruments) as loops in your loop library. You will learn more about saving your recordings as loops and adding additional loops to your Loop Browser in Lesson 9.
In this lesson, you will learn how to customize the Loop Browser, mark and find favorite loops, and build a song from scratch using Apple Loops.
