Howdy ya all !


Just wondering if there is a way to choose a particular section of a song and have it repeat over and over to avoid having to constantly tap on the stop and play button to listen to a particular section again and again.

Like setting a "loop" of a section in a song which is a standard option for example in Logic.

I'm NOT talking about apples instrument loops which we can add to a song.


Thanks much !

    GarageBand already does this. Open the sections menu using the plus symbol at the right-hand end of the time-line and choose whether to display all sections or a specific one. Playback of either should be looped. You can also duplicate a section that you want to repeat within your song, or reorder existing sections. What you cannot do is have, for example, sections C and D play sequentially on repeat.
