Hi, I'm having a problem in GarageBand 9 that I have never previously had. When I split part of a region in a Real Instrument track (Audio), delete the part of the region that I have split off, and then join the two parts of the region either side of the deleted 'gap', the part that I have deleted gets reinstated. I want to be clear here that I am NOT dragging the two bits of the region either side of the 'gap' (deleted part) next to each other - I the two regions to stay in the same places, and just want to put a bit of continuous silence between them, joining all of them into one region as opposed to having different, isolated pieces of regions which might get accidentally moved at some point. This used to work beautifully, and isn't happening in a Software Instrument track. I have tried shutting down my mac pro, re-starting, and firing up GarageBand all over again, and creating a new song and recording a fresh audio track. I have also tried closing and re-opening the track, but the problem still persists. I have also deleted the Preferences files, re-started GarageBand (and got the 'Welcome' screen, which seems to confirm that the Preferences were deleted), but there is still a problem. Does anyone have any ideas about how to prevent/solve this? Thanks, GVDV.
