I have just downloaded GarageBand from the Mac App Store, and want to use it to create ringtones from existing tracks in iTunes.  That part is not a problem.  The problem I am having is that when I open GarageBand, it wants to download 1.2GB of loops.  I am on a slow internet connection (has been throttled by ISP as we have not exceeded a poor download limit), and do not have the time to wait for it to download before I can use GarageBand.


How can I avoid the download in order to edit existing tracks?


How can I force GarageBand to run without having loops installed?
