Hi everyone,


I'm using Garageband to edit some raw drum tracks with my desktop iMac. They were imported as raw audio files, so they don't follow Garageband's metronome, timeline guides, etc.


I need to insert a couple of drum fills in the middle of the main drum track. My problem is this... I split the main drum track and separated the two pieces to insert the drum fill in the middle. However, I can't figure out how to snap the drum fill to the end of the previous track or to the beginning of the next track.


In summary, is there a way to position a track precisely right after the end of a track or right before the beginning of another track? It's very difficult to do this manually. I am only able to snap tracks to the timeline guides, but not to another track.



GarageBand (Mac) '11
