When exporting your project, you can export it as a GarageBand file you can return to for editing or you can export it as a file that can be accessed without GarageBand.
1. To save your project to a flash drive or cloud-based storage platform, click the Share menu and select Export Song to Disk.
Next, choose your format. AAC and MP3 are compressed, smaller files. AIFF (Mac compatible) and WAVE (Mac & Windows compatible) are uncompressed, higher-quality files. Choose the Desktop for the location and select Uncompressed 16-bit for the quality.
Next, a dialog box will appear that says Bouncing…. as your project exports.
Your exported project is now saved to the Mac’s desktop.

3. To upload your project to a flash drive, insert a flash drive in the Mac’s USB port.
Next, open the Finder on the navigation bar and select your flash drive from Locations.

A dialog box that says Bouncing… will appear as your project prepares to burn to a CD. Next, a box will appear that says Burning CDDA to confirm burning.
