Importing Garage Band Files
May 22nd, 2011, 06:31
I have a client who has done some work on GarageBand and he wants to come into my studio and use it as a base for work in Logic. He'll be coming in to lay some new vocals down, add some more instruments, and refine what he did in GB. I did a little pre-sprucing up of some of the tracks, added some effects, tweaked a few parts, and after working for about an hour, logic kind of freaked out. I seem to remember this happening when I worked on another Garage Band project. First of all, is my memory serving me correctly? Can GB files be buggy in Logic? And secondly, if so, is there anything that can be done to make the transition work a better? Thanks in advance for any help you can offer. P.S. I didn't really crash all the way, logic just started behaving very badly. Playhead wouldn't advance with the playback, didn't seem to respond to key commands, etc. I was able to shut it down using the drop down menu (COMMAND-Q would not work), and rebooted and then was able to work fine. Just wondering if there's anything that will make working with BG files smoother.
