When I open Garage Band I select the loops option and have created a drum loop but now I have finished I want to start playing some synths over the top of it. Problem is I dont know how to select all the instruments like synths, pianos etc because I select Loop mode at first.


I cant find the synths etc unless I close Garage Band and reopen it selecting keyboard collection.


This is probably a really basic problem but I have just started using GB.

    choose New Track from the Track menu, and choose "Software Instrument."


    you can then set that track to any instrument available in the track "i"nfo pane on the right side
