    I am stumped.
    I am trying to merge several tracks together IN garageband, because I had about 25 separate tracks, and ended up needing to delete the first 50 secs of all of them- thus, I have 50 seconds of NO SOUND when if I send it to itunes.

    It's impossible for me to shift all the tracks over and have them stay in synch (to my knowledge.)

    How can I either:
    1) Merge all the tracks WITHOUT EXPORTING THEM.
    2) Synch all the tracks, so when I shift one, the others shift with it.

    I'm trying to make a CD for my family for Christmas, and I don't want them to have to fast forward through the first 50 secs to get to the song.:confused:

    If there aren't any automations, you should be able to shift all the regions without troubles. Just select them all at once before moving them.

    Much easier, export the track. Make a new garageband project, import the track. Cut the first 50 secs off and move the rest of the song back and re-export the whole shabang.
