    Garage Band real-time playing problems..
    Hello...

    I was creating some music for a video that i had made on my iBook in Garage Band, when i came to play it back it got to a point and said something like "there are too many streams for garage band to play in real time, please refer to optimising garageband for details". So i do, and it tells me to put processor performance to max etc.. so i do.. but it still gives me this message.

    The spec of my iBook is as follows:

    iBook G4 (Less than 6 months old)

    512MB DDR266 SDRAM
    30GB Ultra ATA drive
    DVD/CD-RW
    Bluetooth Module
    AirPort Extreme Card
    Keyboard & Mac OS
    1.2GHz PowerPC G4
    12.1-inch TFT display
    Two USB ports
    One FireWire port
    Power Adapter
    Battery

    Anyone got any ideas as to how i can make this work? If i can that is.

    Regards,

    Chris.

    Turn off some real-time effects or export the song to mp3/aac to preview it in non-real time.

    Real-time effects like garageband uses are very cpu intensive so if you have a lot in your song I wouldn't be too suprised..

    Have you run software update since you bought your iBook? I know when i got mine i ran the update and downloaded some program updates, cant remember if garage band was on there mind. But still, Its best to keep up-to-date.

    Regards,

    Lack of memory definitely breaks down GarageBand when handling too many tracks...Upgrading to 1GB helps a lot.
