Install missing GarageBand Content (loops etc.)

When you’ve missed installing the GarageBand Extra Content (I.E. “GarageBand Instruments and Apple Loops”) for whatever reason,
and when GarageBand DOES NOT give you the option to install from DVD when clicking on a non-installed loop/synth etc, then you can try the following. YMMV

Note: iLife 11 doesn’t seem to have the extras on the DVD (I could have missed it though)

So, with that in mind, break out your MAC’s Applications installer disc and pop it in and download the attached instructions.



CD Archival and Re-Encoding – Using FLAC and LAME



The purpose of this guide is to provide general information on the following items.

Suggested software/codec’s for digitally archiving your CD’s for long term storage and without losing an ounce of quality. (I.E. Using the Open Source FLAC lossless encoder)

Encode from the Archived FLAC files for the most currently used/popular portable format currently being used; IMHO it’s still MP3’s.

Tools I Used:

Operating System: Windows 7

Secure Ripper/Encoder:
dBpoweramp 13.3:

Lossless = FLAC 1.2.1  and  Lossy = Lame 3.98.2 (included in the install)


I’m not responsible for anything period…..these are just my opinions
