Mapping Garageband Transport Controls

icon256Garageband software is a great tool on Apple computers for simple recording projects.  Since the software is designed to be easy to use there is no manual mapping parameters available to set up with your MIDI device.  MIDI keyboard functions will work with Garageband to trigger your software instruments.  Some MIDI controllers have transport controls built in to allow further control of recording software.  


Please note:

  •  This software will only work with controllers that are able to send MMC transport data.  Please check with your controller manufacturer for information on MMC transport settings.


Download the software from the Garage Remote web page. 

Make sure to assign the transport on your controller to send info in MMC format.

Once the software is installed please set the preferences to match the screenshot below.  Make sure to switch the software to the "on" position before using it with Garageband.

With this utility there will be no functionality of the "Stop" button on your controller.  Simply pushing the "Play" button again will perform the same as "Stop."

These settings are fairly generic and should work for most MIDI controllers that include transport controls.
