Hey, I imported a track from iTunes in AIFF format. I've got it playing and all, I'd just like to know how I can edit out the cuss words on the track.
I'm DJing and I need to edit out all the bad language. Is there a way to do this in GarageBand? Or is there another app I can download?

THANKS for your replies, I'm DJing this Friday.

iBook G4, Mac OS X (10.4.8)

    Open GB's help and click on the "Editing and arranging regions"that should get you started. If you have specific question, post back.

    It just says you can do this and that, but it doesn't actually say you can do whatever...can someone PLEASE just give me a brief explanation on how to do this? I just need to edit/scrath/bleep out some inappropriate language.

    Thanks a million.

    Select the track, open the Inspector (the scissors icon) and you will see the waveform. You can select sections of this (drag the mouse along it) but in order to edit it you need to split the track at the beginning and end of the section : the problem is that you need to replace a section with a bleep of exactly the same length. (You would actually find this easier in an audio editor such as Amadeus II:

    Your best bet would be to select the offending word and copy it out, paste it into an empty new track, find a bleep sound and replace the word in this new track, being careful to keep the length the same, and then paste it back over the word (which you should still have selected) in the original track.

    You could do something similar in Garageband, though it will be a lot clumsier because you can't just select then delete, you have to use the 'split' function..
