    Still no updates..

    Have you tried everything in the list I ponted to?


    • Check, if GarageBand is installed in the "Applications" folder and named GarageBand. Otherwise you cannot update it.
    • Have you accepted  a preinstalled GarageBand to your AppleID? Sign into to AppStore and check the Purchase Tab. Accept, if necessary.
    • GarageBand may already have downloaded the loops, but not indexed them. Then you could try to rebuild the Loop Index: Rebuilding the Loop Index in GarageBand
    • GarageBand may not be able to remember that it updated, because of corrupted preferences, then try HangTime's "oddball" problems fix and delete the preferences:

    • Remember, in Mt. Lion the user library is hidden; you open it best from the Finder's "Go" menu, from the main menu bar:

         Go  > Go to folder           then hold down the alt/option key until the library appears in the drop down menu. Select it to open and remove the file Preferences/

    • If all fails, try to reinstall GarageBand - move the application to the Trash and download it again from the AppStore.

    Hi Leonie!!

    problem was solved with Apple sending me a download of the complete set of "software instruments"

    after exhausting all possible solutions....


    i then discarded all the existing instruments and replaced with the freshly downloaded ones

    and it worked...thank God!!

    i am now going to ask you a way to disengage the start up sound on my Imac..

    any ideas?

    No idea - tell me, if you find out.


    I used this prefpane with snowleopard:

    but it does no longer work with Mt. Lion on my mac.


    For Mt. Lion see here: How disable startup sound mountain lion?
