I can't export a 4 second clip in Version 6.0.5 b/c my end marker won't go shorter than 7 full measures. What's the trick?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8), GarageBand '11 6.0.5

    You can export a shorter clip by narking the vour measures with the cycle region. Only the cycle region will be exported.




    For example, turning on "cycle" (click the button with the cicle of two blue arrows) and  marking four measures exported the four measures clip that I imported to the second track.

    The minimum cycle range is 1 beat. The actual length in time then varies on your selected Tempo in bpm which could vary between 0.25s and 1.5s).

    Hi, bringing up an old thread here!

    I'm a fairly experienced user of GB and Logic.  I am trying to export a short synth loop from GarageBand for use in Mainstage 3 as a backing track.  It's just a 4 bar loop at 70 BPM.  I've tried using cycle region markers and making the whole project only 2 bars.  Every time I share the song to disk or itunes, it gives me a couple extra seconds on the end no matter what i do.  Could the delay on the synth cause this?  I just want to be able to loop this track in Playback in Mainstage.  Thanks!
