fixed1t Garageband 10 Song - Sample And 8-Bit Error Fixes

Mac Garageband 10 song files can be afflicted by the dreaded 8-Bit Audio File Format error. This occurs at random in audio files recorded using Garageband 10 and below and stored within the Garageband song files. Unlike with previous versions of Garageband i.e. 11 and below, the 8-Bit Audio File Format error is no longer caused by faulty settings within the 'm4a' sample or effect media files within the Garageband song. With Garageband 10, all such files are now aiff format. Rather than this simplifying the process this has made it much more difficult to indentify and target the damaged files.

However, after some investigation fixed1t discovered that if the error is a simple 8-bit audio file format error then it may be repaired by using a simple substitution technique described in the following video: Fixing A Garageband 10 8bit Song Error - Part 1 The Simple Fix

If the audio samples cannot be fixed or replaced using the technique highlighted above, then the broken audio files and samples need to be identified with the Garageband 10 song, then extracted from the song for further analysis and repair.

To do this fixed1t have created the:

fixed1t Garageband 10 Song - Audio Error Detector

This application enables the user to manually select a Garageband 10 Song File, and have the software analyse the files within the song and display the results in a drop down list. The user can then select whether the files are just displayed on the screen, copied to a software generated folder or moved to the folder for repair and analysis. This is described in the following tutorial:
