Fine tune Master Tempo and Master Volume in Garageband Apps
GarageBand has a useful feature called Master Tempo which lets you control the tempo throughout a song -- type Command-B and choose Master Tempo to see it. The problem is, it only seems to let you change the tempo in about five to six beat-per-minute intervals. The secret is to click on the tempo dot you wish to fine tune, then press down the Shift key -- this will let you tune in one beat-per-minute intervals.

This trick also works for Master Volume, which normally only lets you change in roughly 0.5dB to 0.7dB steps, but with the Shift key, you can change at around 0.2dB to 0.3dB. Master Pitch already allows the finest tuning (1 semitone) without the Shift key, and does not present any finer tuning with the Shift key down.

The trick also works with various of the track automations, such as frequency, though not with all.

How do I adjust tempo of tracks individually
Authored by: SOX on Jul 23, '09 01:47:57PM

Anyone know how to change the tempo of tracks individually? specifically, if I record a keyboard track at say 80 beats per minute and then I want to combine it with another track I played at 90 beats per minute can I change the tempo individually per track? All I see is the global tempo adjust.

You might take a look at Apple's Soundtrack Loop Utility. It is a free download.

Also, another option would be to create a separate song for the one track, edit the temp, export it, then reimport it into a song with your other track.

Fine tune Master Tempo and Master Volume in Garageband

If you do not want to change the region code on your Mac according to different region DVD, the best choice would be having an external driver. So your copy software must support external driver. As I know, Mac DVD Copy Pro support external driver.
