    the orange loops ( audio ) that are made when
    one imports any of the 1000's of WAV's i have found on the net
    that have synths for example in their sound or raucous guitars
    cannot and i repeat cannot be pitch changed or tempo changed to play neatly along with the already established green or purple
    loops. In other words if
    they are orange and if they are to be used in the song the other instruments of the song must play along and be in the same key
    as this Orange loop made from importing Audio WAVs?
    It is fixed, and can be repeated by copy and paste or option dragging them or shortening and lenghtening them but these
    orange loops are not convertible if made into a loop.
    I notice the choices of loop or one shot are greyed out
    when i attempt making a loop with them.
    This is indeed limiting and disappointing but i have to get my fact straights as to what limitations i have here.
    the only loop that is "flexible malleable and will change its pitch and tempo" are the blue purple or green?
    do i have that right?

    This has to be the hardest post I have ever tried to read. I had to keep going over the same line because i would get screwed up where I was.

    its pretty clear to anyone with some knowledge of digital music
    you might not be one!
    and now i know from posting it elsewhere
    what the answer is
    how the issue operates
    and how to confuse people like you

    You make no friends by posting in this manner, especially if you know the answer.

    wwodden was mearly pointing out that your post is confusing, not it's content.

    If you want you loops to behave dynamically you'll need to process them through the Sountrack loop utility, which was available with Soundtrack as part of Final Cut Pro (and as a standalone app if I remember) or as a download from the Apple Developer site.

    This utility adds the meta-data necessary for Garageband to identify the amount of time-stretch and/or pitch shifting required.

    Please post in a civil manner.
