Many common tasks aren’t obvious in GB4IOS; for example, how to delete various elements. In the beginning, it took me some time to fumble my way through the necessary actions, and I see lots of people asking these questions on forums. So let’s acknowledge a little learning curve for these fundamentals and place all the answers in one handy location.
Note: All screen shots below are all from my iPhone, which is similar, but not identical to the iPad version. The concepts are similar enough to apply to the iPad easily.
Garageband is a unique app for osx made by Apple Inc. This audio production app gives you the capacity to perform with mix and record your music. While this remarkable digital sound program has lots of complex functionalities, even its users continue to be more likely to lack in paths that are crucial as a result of several explanations.
Delete Songs in GarageBand
To delete a song, you need to be on the main/home screen. If you open the app and it shows different mode like tracks view or instrument/playing view, click the top-left triangle (iPhone) or My Songs (iPad)
1. Press and hold down the track you wish to delete for a couple of seconds. After this, it will select the song and activate the Song Edit functions.
2. With the song now selected, press the trash can icon to delete the song.
To delete an entire track of a song, you must be on the Tracks screen (see below). This action will not only remove the track’s data but the track’s slot in the Tracks screen. You might do this to kill string track that you decide not to include in a song.
1. Now Track View open. Click on the head of the track you want to delete. The track will darken, showing that it’s selected.
2. Tap once more on the head of the track, popping up the Track Edit menu.
3. Tap Delete. Your track will be history.
Deleting a Region (Segment/Clip)
A region (or sometimes called “segment” or “clip”) is part of a track. You can make a region by just recording for a few seconds into a fresh track.
Also, if you divide a song into sections, and are working in just one section, the green bar would represent only a part of the song, and you’d be viewing a region.
1. Two taps on a region brings up the Region Edit menu. The first tap changes the region’s look, giving it a border plus left-and-right grabbing handles.
2. The second tap brings up the Region Edit menu.
3. Tap Delete. Poof! The region will disappear.
How to know how much space your songs are actually using
- Open Settings > General > Storage & iCloud Usage
- Tap on Manage Storage >tap on Garageband
- Look at Documents & Data. Clear all data.
