Chapter 5. GarageBand > Convert loops and regions

Convert loops and regions

A loop or a collection of loops adjacent to each other in a track is called a region (learn more about regions starting on page 237). You can convert a Software Instrument loop or region to a Real Instrument loop or region. You might want to do this to reduce processing demands on your computer, since Software Instruments require more processing, or perhaps you prefer working with Real Instrument loops and waveforms in the Track Editor instead of Software Instruments and individual graphical notes.

To convert a Software Instrument loop to a Real Instrument loop

  • Drag a loop from the Loop Browser to an existing Real Instrument track (Real Instrument tracks and Real Instrument loops are blue).

    Or Option-drag a Software Instrument loop from the Loop Browser to an empty area in the Timeline to convert the loop and create a new Real Instrument track for it.
