    I have a clip of audio in Garageband and what I want to do is cut the last 10 seconds off and then save the file as an MP3 (the whole clip is only 30 seconds). So I figured out how to delete the 10 seconds, but then when I export the clip, I still have a 30 second audio file, except that the last 10 seconds are just empty noise. How do I actually reduce the time of a Garageband track?

    There should be a small purple arrow up by the bar number / time (depending on settings) which signals the end of the track. Drag that back to the end of your recording then export....

    there is no purple arrow to signal the end of the track. i have a very long blank space at the end of the song i made. I don't know how to delete that.

    i cant copy and cut or shorten it in any way. garage band 11.

    I have solved this now as you suggested thanks. It just takes a bit of getting used to the interface, look and feel of GarageBand (or anything else for that matter).
