Two Types of Tracks

When you compose in GarageBand, you work with two very different types of tracks: real instrument tracks and software instrument tracks. The loops that GarageBand provides also fall into these two broad categories: loops with a blue icon are real instrument loops, and loops with a green icon are software instrument loops.

But what’s the difference between a real instrument and a software instrument? The answer lies in the fact that today’s Macs are powerful enough to generate sound using more than one technique. In fact, GarageBand is able to generate sound using multiple techniques at once.
