Have you tried the "Restore Purchase" command in GarageBand 10.0?
Main menu bar "GarageBand > restore Purchase"?
The easiest way to restore all instruments and loops would be to restore them from your backup:
You need to restore certai folders from the System Library - the "Library" folder at the top level of your Macintosh HD:
- All folders with "Loops" in their names from "/Library/Audio/"
- Any missing instruments in /Library/Application Support/GarageBand/Instrument Library/
- Any missing instruments from /Library/Application Support/Logic/
After reinstalling, restart the system and rebuild the Loop index in both GarageBands:
- GB 10.0: Logic Pro X, GarageBand for Mac (v10.0): Reindex to fix issues with Apple Loops
- GB '11: Rebuilding the Loop Index in GarageBand
Thanks for trying to help. I read your suggestions - appreciated but, I became kind of confused.
Anyways I thought that what I needed to do was to uninstall Garage band 6 from my macbook pro.
1. I did just that - uninstalled Garage band 6 from my laptop - totally.
2. In the Applications folder where Garage Band 10 (the new Garage Band) is I created a new folder and called it a name I liked(any name will do).
3. I dragged the garage band 10 to that new folder I have created - this way Garage Band 10 does not exist in the Applications folder anymore.
4. I then got the Application DVD that came with my macbook pro , inserted it and select custom install.
That way I get the uption to install Garage Band 6 and its Jingles and Loops ONLY by unchecking all the other bundled applications (iweb, idvd ect.)
5. Garage band 6 then installs directly to the application folder.
6. Opened Garage Band 6 from the application folder and I saw my original instruments and loops.
7. To get the additional loops for garage band 6 I select one of the greyed out loops and I got a prompt to download additional 600MB of loops ect from Apple.
8. I clicked Ok to download the loops and My App Store was opened; after a few secs the I saw the additional loops appear in the update. I clicked update and the update of 1.2gb took approximatly 10 minuites to download.
9. I restarted my Macbook pro and opened Garage Band 6 and all my loops and instruments were there and worked quite fine in OSX Mavericks.
10. I then opened the folder with Garage band 10 ( the new Garage Band) and it opened - even while Garage Band 6 was opened. The instruments from the old Garage Band was automatically added to the new garage band as legacy.
I am happy.
Hope this helps anyone else with the same issues Garage Band/OSX Mavericks.
For trying to help - I will share a track I composed some time ago with Garage Band:
