I've composed a song on Garageband with my iMac.  I would like to move that song to my iPhone 5 so I can edit it with my Garageband app.  I tried the file sharing through itunes without luck.  Any ideas?

iPhone 5, iOS 6.1

    Per default the GarageBand Project file is only upward compatible.


    GaragBand iOS > GarageBand OSX > Logic


    There is some information available on the internet that explains the (rather complex) steps how to "surgically" remove the restrictions and open a GarageBand OSX file in GarageBand iOS. However, the result still depends on the limitation of the GarageBand iOS version.



    Hope that helps
