Chapter 26. Software Instruments (MIDI) > Quantizing ("Align To" Button)

26.11. Quantizing ("Align To" Button)

When Apple representatives demonstrate GarageBand in public, the feature that often gets the most oohs and aahs from the audience is the Align To button. With one quick click, it magically cleans up any recording that has less-than-perfect rhythm. What sounds at first a little ragged, a bit stumbling, suddenly plays back with clean, perfect timing.

Among computer-based musicians, the term for this cleanup is called quantizing or quantization. In GarageBand, you quantize your music using a button in the Track Editor called Align To.
