Other tips. When you cant find installed loops in Garageband it’s most likely is because your BPM is locked to reflect the BPM of that project. It is a default setting in Garageband. To turn this off so you can see every loop go into Garageband preferences, Choose loops, then un-check the box that say’s Filter for more relevant results. Now look in your loop browser in Garageband and make sure your LCD (the blues display in Garageband) display is on measures, now check your loop browser. You should now see every loop no matter what BPM’s they are or key they are in. Let us know that his helped.
