I am using Garage Band to create an audio book using GB's podcast function.  I have gone back through my recording and found places where I need to re-record a passage.  I know how to delete the "bad" passage, but when I copy and paste the corrected passage in the gap there is often an overlap to what follows - a second or two of the following passage gets obliterated by what I just pasted in (probably because the correction was just a bit longer than what was there previously.)  What's the best way to paste in a correction without affecting what comes after it?

    drag the bottomLeft edge to un-obliterate it

    When I grab the bottom left corner of the obliterated region and pull it to the right, the data doesn't move to the right, it just gets erased.

     

    that's exactly how it should work. you have to drag to the LEFT to reveal more of the region. if you want to move the region to the right, click in the middle of the region and drag

    you need to create lots of space between the two adjacent regions, then join everything together.

     

    as long as it works for you, that's great, but you don't actually need to do either of those steps.

     

    in fact, you don't really need to move the new take at all, only if you want to do so. it'll work fine in a track all its own

     

    skim the tute, as i mentioned, and i think you'll find moving regions much easier.
