But how do I get the .aiff files into Garage Band?
I can't find where in the application or system they go? There are no instructions with the download.
Can anyone help?
Garage Band has turned me, and my kids into composers overnight- so much fun!

You just have to take the map with the loops and drag it into the loopsbrowser (this is the part in garageband where the loops are defined. It's just that simple. The programm will automaticly import the loops.


there is no troubleshooting !

After you have your loops folder on desktop, first
drag the licence (wich is in this folder) on the destop. Then run GB and drag your loops folder in the window (bottom - right) where you see normaly the loops in GB. A window with a progress bar will appear & after some time this process is finished !
Its all, now all the loops are in the correct location.
You can see this folder in : HD/Application Support/GB/Apple Loops…

After that, drag again the license into the folder wich remains on your desktop and save this folder on a CD.

And have fun…

Also, Mac has released an Update for GarageBand. It updates it to v1.1. this allows you to import ur own mp3s and other loops as well.
I definitely suggest you download it.

Art Gillespie is one talent dude. These Bitshift Audio loops are awesome. Well-crafted, technically pure and just a whole lot of FUN. Very nice work, and tremendous price. Encore....
