How do I use MachFive with Garageband?

Follow these steps to use MachFive in Garageband:

  • Create a new track and then double-click the track in the timeline.(any preset will work - but it is advisable to keep it in a similar instrument family)
  • In the Track popup window, click on the Details pull-down arrow.
  • Under Generator, select MachFive from the pulldown menu.
  • Select Manual and click on the Edit button.
  • The MachFive window will pop up.
  • From here, you can select one preset (Garageband can not use multichannel instruments).
  • However, you can layer sounds by assigning a sound to another part in MachFive, and assigning them to respond to the same MIDI channel.
  • To save this as a preset you can call up in Garageband, click on the Save Instrument button.
