Is there any way that I can reverse a song and save the reversed version? I'm new at music composition (as you can tell), so any advice would help me. Also, I have garageband and quicktime pro, if that helps. Thank you!

I do not know how to save a song backwards but I do know how to play it backwards. You open the song in quicktime select loop forwards and back then click the play marker near the end and hit play. It will play to the end and then start going backwards. And yes some songs have secret messages like Empty Spaces by Pink Floyd and Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin. Brittany Spears has a rather interesting secret message in one of her songs

if you can play it backwards then you may be able to use audio hijack to record that?

Also in QuickTime you can go to A/V Controls and play it in reverse

Don't forget to use the new User Reputation System

Time for my favourite audio trick.

1) Get an optical lead and plug your output into your input.
2) Play whatever you like from iTunes or Quick Time or from a streaming website etc.
3) Record it using GarageBand.

Simple innit!

You have to fiddle with the settings for audio in order to send output to the optical port rather than internal speaker and also tell GarageBand via its settings to input from optical port.

This trick works well with the optical ports because they are isolated and noise free, I'm not sure that the same trick would work connecting the headphone socket to microphone socket, in fact I would not suggest trying it unless you really know what you are doing.

I have used this trick to record soundtracks from DVD's into GarageBand for editing and for making my own "podcasts" from web radio stations.

No and logically there can't be as the optical signal out is a set level of light perfectly matched to the optical in so it is also zero-noise.

Having built in digital optical sound processing was one of the big selling points that persuaded me to get the PowerMac in the first place at the time (2 years ago now) Apple were the only off the shelf systems to include it.

Why not just import your audio file into SOUND STUDIO.

Select it, go to Filter and select Backwards...

...job's a good'n!
