Garageband Installation ???

Postby DigitalMusicProduction » Wed Nov 11, 2020 9:31 am

Hi 

Recently installed the latest version of Garageband including all available sounds, all was fine, the next day performed a software update, (NOT OS Catalina, just basic updates) went back to Garageband and found many of the same software instruments behaving differently. 

It seems the software update has potentially corrupted various patches in the library, how that's even possible I don't know? But both GB and the library were sounding fine before the software update was installed. 

Therefore Is it possible to uninstall GB and perform a fresh install? 

Macbook Pro, OS Mojave 10.14.6

Music, a universal language that speaks to every soul, a euphoria of moods that inspires, convict's and heals.

What software update did you do exactly? Updating the system won't change Garageband or touch installed content.

When you say "behaving differently", that doesn't tell me anything. How did they "behave" before, and how are they "behaving" now that's wrong?

Patches are not as tight and accurate in rhythm, they fall behind in keeping up in tempo when using arpeggiated synth pads causing the overall tonal colour and effect in not being the same as before, thus resulting in the library sounding fragmented.

You didn't answer my question as to what updates you did to make your system apparently "not tight".

What audio hardware are you using?
