Updating GB Index & Omitted Files
Authored by: thunderjug on Feb 04, '04 08:52:10AM

Xeo, this is an amazing piece of work. Thanks for posting! I'm having a problem getting GB to recognize the new Soundtrack files, however.

(I have GB, GB Jam Pack and Soundtrack.)

I saw your detail about selecting "Edgy Modern Rock Bass 2", which should cause GB to re-index - but I'm not able to find any sound files that cause this to happen. I can't even locate "Edgy Modern Rock Bass 2" in GB!

Then I realized something else: There are a number of sound files that don't appear in the GB sound browser that ARE in the "/Library/Application Support/GarageBand/Apple Loops" directory. (This is completely regardless of adding the Soundtrack files.)

For example, if I search for "Edgy" in GB sound browser, my first results are "Edgy Rock Bass 05" and "Edgy Rock Bass 08" - but there are files in that directory, beginning with "01", that should appear.

At first I assumed that the file time signature may have restricted them out, but nope, they're all 4/4.

Any idea what would prevent these files from appearing?

Check what key they're in; unless you've changed it in your GarageBand preferences, GB only shows you loops within a certain range of the key you've chosen.

That nailed it. I saw that multiple keys appeared in the results, so I assumed that ALL keys were appearing. I didn't notice that there was a preference to only display results within a limited range of keys. Unchecking this preference made all of 'em available.

Thanks!
