Ad­just­ing your project length

iCreate - - GARAGE BAND -

The length of a project is of course vari­able and will most likely change dur­ing the course of de­vel­op­ing a song, but it’s not al­ways im­me­di­ately ob­vi­ous to be­gin­ners as to how this is al­tered. This is be­cause the ‘end point’ can be tough to dis­tin­guish un­til it is ex­ceeded, with the marker drag­gable along the Tracks ruler. Any bars af­ter this point won’t play, but it will move to ac­com­mo­date record­ings. Here we’ll ex­am­ine how to use the end-of-project marker ac­cord­ingly.

1 Marker drag

Projects start as 32 bars long. Drag the ar­row hor­i­zon­tally along the ruler and you’ll no­tice a pop-up in­di­ca­tor ap­pears un­der the cur­sor de­not­ing the start/end points.

2 Stop­ping short

Any­thing within the start and end points is your song, so play­back or song ex­port will cease at the marker. How­ever, tracks or project bars can ex­ist be­yond this point.
