Problem - Vocal track changed to different effects
Apr 29th, 2021, 06:56
I use an older version on GarageBand. I was editing a song project when I noticed my main vox track sounded different in certain parts. The chosen "Live Performance" effect that I had selected was random. After trying to edit the reverb and echo in the Master Track, I realized the name of many on the vocal track "bubbles" or segments had changed to "No Effects" instead of "Live Performance". The track, like most others, clearly states my preference of "Live Performance" over in the left margin. But many segments/bubbles in the track randomly changed to say "No Effects" in small lettering at the top-left edge of many track bubbles. And you can hear the difference. I spent SO much time getting the vox just right - I don't want to have to re-do them from scratch; and I also want to know a solution in case this happens to me in the future. But nothing I know or tried can fix the problem. I do recall getting an error warning earlier (when I tried to extend one the the bubbles by a fraction) about "Flex-Time" markers. I don't know what that even is and assumed it was related to the features at the bottom like auto-tune, pitch etc. (I don't get involved in those things) so I said Yes to removing the Flex-time markers or Flex-time editing. Could this be related to my issue? I also have 3 different tracks in this project that are set to "No Effects". But no way on the vox tracks. I haven't clicked Save yet... so one possible option might be to keep on hitting Edit/Undo to undo an hour's worth of editing... I sure hope this is NOT my only option. Has anyone had this problem? Might you have some advice or questions? Much appreciated if so... Paul.
