Step9: Adjust the volume controls on each track so that the volume is consistent through out the entire segment.
Step10: Find a Comfortable Zoom Level
To zoom the timeline in or out, slide the zoom bar right or left, respectively. The zoom bar is at the left bottom of the screen.
Tips: This applies to editing anything digital. Zoom in. By zooming in, you can accurately cut audio out, and not clip audio waveforms unnecessarily.
Step11: Enlarge the Editing View
GarageBand lets you vertically increase the size of the waveforms onscreen for easier editing. Take advantage of this snazzy feature by dragging the dark grey area beside the record button up/down. Dragging up increases the size of the editing area, and dragging down reduces the size of the area, which is useful once you're done editing and are ready to move on to mixing.
Step12: When you are done, go to the end of your track and locate the end marker. It looks like a purple triangle at the top of your track. Slide it to the place where you want your audio to end.
