Archived - GarageBand '11: Unable to create electric guitar tracks

This article has been archived and is no longer updated by Apple.


You may not be able to make an electric guitar track after updating to GarageBand '11. This can occur if you chose a custom install option when installing a previous version of GarageBand and then relocated the instruments and loops.


To resolve this issue:

  1. Quit GarageBand.
  2. From the Finder, choose Home from the Go menu.
  3. Double-click the Library folder.
  4. Double-click the Preferences folder.
  5. Find the file "" and drag it to the trash.

Note: Performing these steps will reset any customized preferences in GarageBand to their default settings (such as the selected audio input and output device).
