    I like the many samples in Garage Band. Is it possible to transfer the Garage Band Sample Files as waves into other programs? Thank you.

    The samples from GarageBand are found in Macintosh HD:Library:Audio:Apple Loops:iLife:Apple Loops for GarageBand. From there you can open them up with Quicktime and export to WAV files for use in other applications.

    No worries, congrats on your new Mac! If you right-click on the files, you can go to Open With and choose QuickTime Player. In QuickTime, go to the file menu, click Export…, and then select WAV from the dropdown menu.

    You can change the settings of the WAV file if need be, then click Save.

    Chilipie, I follow your instructions RE: changing a CAF to a WAV file, but I could not find the below image under the Quicktime File Menu. Which version of Quicktime are you using?

    I'm personally fond of the psychodelic period. The mid-late 60s into the early 70s. I'm also a big fan of the indie scene of the mid-late 90s (the kind of Matador Records as well as Sub Pop and Geffen to an extent sound (bands like Pavement and Sonic Youth)that I don't necessarily think you can call a movement, but it was really good).
