To find a solution to their damaged Garageband issues.
At the time I created a fixer for the 8-bit error that was plaguing Garageband users, but with the recent releases of Garageband things have gotten a whole lot more complicated. In the old days Garageband store audio files and effects as compressed 4mv files which could be in identified, tested and fixed by the fixed1t 8-bit fixer. But now most of the files are straight aiff files, and the tasks of finding the defective files has become a lot more difficult to detect and test.
Of course there is the manual method, find the files and hand test each file till the defective one is found, but thats slow and tedious. Whilst investigating a recent spate of errors from users, I realised and a simple data lister software I created to aid me when writing my original:
This is an absolute must for displaying the user audio files within Garageband.
Here is a video showing me using it when working with the Roland MC-808.
By giving me a list of the files and all their properties in a drop down list, I can quickly spot any that are defective as I'll show in the next blog entry.
My data lister has therefore become an extremely valuable and simple tool in the search for damaged Garageband files. Once found the damaged file can be eradicated or repaired or re-recorded. This has saved my users much heartache by resurrecting their defective Garageband Songs.
