The possibilities are truly endless when it comes to creating music in GarageBand.

In addition to being able to use your existing music in creative ways in GarageBand, there are also other benefits associated with importing your music from iTunes.

Adding an iTunes Song to GarageBand

Adding an iTunes song to GarageBand is a relatively simple process. First, open up iTunes and locate the song that you want to add. Right-click on the song and select “Show in Finder” to open up where the file is stored on your computer. Once you have located the file, drag it onto your desktop. Then launch GarageBand and create a new project. In the Tracks View window, click on the Loop Library icon in the top right corner of the window. From there, click on Files in the left sidebar and use the “Import File” button to import your iTunes song into GarageBand. Finally, drag your imported file from Files into your project to begin adding it to your project.

Adding iTunes Music to GarageBand on Mac

To add iTunes Music to GarageBand on Mac, first, open the iTunes application. In the Library tab, select the songs you want to add to GarageBand and drag them into the open GarageBand window. Once you've done that, you'll see each song appear as an individual track in the Tracks area. You can then edit or manipulate the tracks as desired.

Importing Songs from iTunes to GarageBand

The reason you can't import songs from iTunes to GarageBand is that some songs in iTunes are protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM). This means that the song is encrypted and cannot be played or used outside of its original source. If a song is protected, it will show as “Kind: Protected AAC…” or “Kind: Apple Music Audio File” in the Info panel of the song in iTunes. Unfortunately, GarageBand cannot read this encryption, so these protected songs cannot be imported into GarageBand.

Importing Songs into GarageBand

Yes, you can import songs into GarageBand. To do this, you will need to open the song file in iTunes or another compatible audio file format such as AIFF, WAV, or MP3. Once you have opened the song in iTunes or another audio player, simply click and drag it into your GarageBand session window. When dragging the file into GarageBand, make sure to drag it at the bottom of the session window if you are working with a large session with many tracks. If you are using a smaller session with fewer tracks then you can drag the file anywhere in the session. Once imported, the song will be available within GarageBand for any editing or production tasks that you wish to perform.
