Chapter 5. GarageBand > Save Your Song as an Archive

Save Your Song as an Archive

If any of your song loops get moved or deleted, GarageBand won't be able to find them when you open a song project that uses those loops. Or if you copy a song project to another computer, that computer may not have the same collection of loops that were on the first computer. To avoid any of these problems you can save your song project as an archive. When you save a song as an archive, all the loops you used in the song are saved and packaged with the archive, including any original recordings you made.

Be aware that saving as an archive increases the size of a song file. An ordinary song file (not archived) is smaller because it references loops rather than contains them. Songs that use a large number of loops can create very large archive files.
