Great feature and very nice tutoria! Though I have a problem when importing long song-mini-files into Garageband. After about 8:30 all of the instruments just stop playing and I can't finish the song. Actually, the instruments stop but the Garageband-display tells me that the instruments are playing one single note each. I can't hear these not though... And the tracks keep on doing that for exactly 10000 bars, every time, causing my Garageband-file to be quite big seized. Does anybody recognize thisand possible know how to fix it?
