4 - When the apple loops have finished indexing go to the Preferences > General tab and uncheck the "Filter for more relevant results" option as this will increase the number of apple loops that you'll be able to see. You might want to try doing this before indexing the loops.
Top tip 1
If you have purchased our Max Producer Pack or simply have lots of collections of apple loops it's going to take a long time to navigate to all the sub folders that contain your files. The best thing to do in this instance is to dump all of your apple loops into one large folder and then use Finder to search only for .aiff files within that folder.
You can then select the search results and drag and drop them into the Garageband loop browser. It will take a long time to index the files but you'll have saved a lot of time digging down to sub folders to find your apple loops.
Top Tip 2
GarageBand 1 installs its loop content in:
~/Library/Audio/Apple Loops/User Loops
Just be careful what you delete. Make sure you only delete files that failed to index and always have a backup of anything you intend to delete.
