Hi guys,

 

I have added a good number of loops and it brings up a couple questions.

 

1. I use Garaband 11. Is there a way when GarageBand 12 comes out to upgrade to 12 and be able to transfer everything i've done in 11 and put them into 12?

2. Is there a way that is built into GarageBand to backup all the songs, loops etc that you have added to GarageBand?

 

Any thoughts would be appreciated,

 

Harry

    there would likely be nothing to do on your part, newer versions of GB have always referenced the same loops and projects available/created with previous versions

    not built-in to GB, but Time Machine is the standard Apple tool for making backups

    How do I back it up

     

    i would strongly suggest you get some help getting Time Machine to work. certainly there's other important data on your hard drive that would be catastrophic to lose in a hard drive failure (and hard drives fail, it's not an "if", it's only a when)... for instance our GB projects themselves.

     

    however, the other obvious solution is to burn them to a DVD-R
