I don't know if this is the right place but w/e. Anyways, I have apple garage band software on my computer, and it works great, the only thing is that i can't use any of the effects on it. Whenever i try it as soon as I hit record, it says there's too many effects, and not enough memory for them. Anyone know how to increase my computer storage space to allow for the effects? Or if it's a different problem from my description?
You'll need to buy more RAM.
What if I deleted a ton of crap off the computer?
that wont free up RAM, closing running programs would.
there's ram and rom. jerry and tom... anyway, RAM (random access information) is built in memory on your comp, ROM (read only memory) is like a CD with memory on it. There might be glitch in the software or something (pretty unlikely), but my guess is that it doesnt allow or want you to use that many effects. If the number of effects is above a round number then thats probably the case. If it says too many effects when you use like 3 effects than it probably is the memory problem. You could shut down any antispy software or other stuff like that. It might help some.
I can't use even one effect

But yes, if you don't have other programs open in the background, you most likely need more ram on your computer (you'll need to buy more, if it'll fit in the computer). It could also be stuff running in the system tray that's taking up memory, but that's something more confusing, plus I don't use macs, so I dunno how to explain it to you haha (assuming you run it on a mac, I don't know if garage band is even available on pc?).
did you try asking apple? They give fast and accurate responses, so see if they can be of any help to you. Personally, I've never experienced this, so good luck!
maybe u have a virus, or did u just install garage band and never restart? maybe reinstall it.
I'd give up now. Unless you can add RAM, Garage band is the biggest fail on Macs. It's a RAM *****. I can't run 2 same tracks with no effects at one time on my Macbook...let alone run word and excel at the same time and get decent speeds... WIndows has loads of free ones that are though not as good, are still a good alternative.
