I am editing long audio files of people talking, up to 2 hours. These files have long stretches of no speaking but I must listen to the entire track. So I would like to speed up the track, then when I hit a patch of audio, slow it down to it"s original speed. Is this possible?

Side note: I searched for the answer and was quite confused because all of the answers were from about 5 years ago. I hit control+option+g and my track turned from orange to blue and I can"t figure out how to turn it back to orange and the purpose of it being blue.

Any input would be appreciated.

You don"t speed up the entire audio file, you edit (cut out) the silent parts where people don"t talk:

select the entire Audio Regionplace the Playhead at the beginning of the first silent parthit command+T (this splits the Audio Region into two)drag the left border of the new region to the right where the people start to talk againmove that second Audio Region to the left at the end of the previous Audio Region.continue the same procedure with the next silent part

Hope that helps

To speed up a track in Garageband 10.1:

First import the track from iTunes.

Click on the track and then on the editors button at the top of the screen.

Down in the editor, click on the show hide/ flex button

At the top of the screen, drop the numbers in BPM to the right or left to adjust the speed of the track.

Sorry if the directions are confusing, and good luck!
