Regions overview

Regions are the building blocks of a project. When you record an instrument, drag an Apple Loop to the Tracks area, or add a media file, a region containing the music from the recording, loop, or media file is created. Regions appear as rounded rectangles in the Tracks area.

You can arrange and edit the following types of regions in the Tracks area:

  • Audio regions from audio recordings, audio Apple Loops, and imported audio files on audio tracks

  • MIDI regions from software instrument (and external MIDI instrument) recordings, software instrument Apple Loops, and imported MIDI files on software instrument tracks

  • Drummer regions generated on Drummer tracks
