    Slow Down a Portion of a Track In Garageband (#1185)

    December 1, 2019


    Hi, this is Gary with MacMost.com. On today’s
    episode let me show you how you can slow down a portion of a track in Garageband. So here’s something I get asked every once
    in awhile. How do you slow down some audio using Garageband? But not just slow down the
    audio in its entirety but only a section of it. Like if you want a song to slow down at
    the end, or at least a track from the song. So I’m going to go into Garageband and create
    an empty project. But I want to point out that I’ve got this audio file right here.
    This audio file is just a looping guitar piece. It loops at the same speed and I want it to
    slow down at the end. I’m going to drag that into the project. Let’s create the empty project
    here and then I’m going to drag and drop this file in. So there I go. I’m going to position
    it all the way to the left and now I’ve got this guitar bit right here. If I play it you
    can hear the loop. Alright, so that just loops over and over
    again. But what I want to do is here at the end, right about here, I want it to slow down
    to the end there. So in order to do that I need to enable some things. Let’s clean this up first. I’ve got this blank
    track here. I’m going to select it and then use Command Delete to get rid of it. So now
    I just have the recorded guitar track there. Now I’m going to go to Track and Show Tempo
    Track. Now you would think this is exactly what we want, the tempo track. We can drag
    this line down and slow things down. But that’s not what the tempo track does. At least not
    right now because what it will actually do is it will tell Garageband that the tempo
    of this is something different. Right now it doesn’t know. Its just recorded
    audio. So we’ve told it, ah it’s a 120 beats per minute. Well, if we were to change it
    to 90 it would say great. I’m still playing at the same speed but you’ve just told me
    that speed is 90 beats per minute. So it’s not going to affect this track. It will just
    affect other things we bring in like other loops and things like that. So we will see
    no change if we adjust tempo, at least not yet. Now we want to go to View, Show Editor. Here
    we’ve got the editor at the bottom. If you can’t see the Follow Tempo & Pitch down here
    at the bottom first make sure you are set to Region not Track. So click on Region. Then
    you can drag this line here up to make sure you see everything here at the bottom. Another thing you want to make sure, is make
    sure you have this selected up here. See I can have it not selected and then selected.
    It’s got to be selected else you won’t be able to check off Follow Tempo & Pitch which
    is what we want. Even with this selected, sometimes, this won’t
    check off. Sometimes I find that you have to do something like turn on Flex and then
    off Flex and then it will check it off. I don’t know why you need to do that sometimes
    and not others but you can see that everything is the same. I’ve just turned that on and
    off. The bottom line is you need to get this checked either by checking it or by turning
    this on and off here. Now that we have Follow Tempo & Pitch turned
    on we can slow down this track for real. I could just drag this line down here and
    it would slow things down and you can hear it slower. But we don’t want to slow down
    the entire thing. So I’ll go back to 120 beats per minute and I’m going to use the Command
    key on my keyboard and click on the line right here. You can see it when I hold the Command
    key down I get this little pen or knife here. I’m not sure what that icon is supposed to
    be. But I can click right there and I create a dot. Now I can adjust this line here so
    I can have a sudden abrupt change in speed right at this point. I don’t want an abrupt change in speed so
    what I’m going to do is I’m going to go back up here to 120 and I’m going to put another
    point right here at the end. Then I’m going to, you can see this is a line here I can
    drag. Actually there is three points now when I created that other one. I’ve got this point,
    that point, and this middle point that was created. I can drag this down to where I want
    it. Let’s drag this way down. I can go down below
    the bottom of that. Notice the number there next to Change Tempo, 60, 50, 40. I’ll go
    down to 40, really slow. Then this will jump and change so that it adjusts there. I’ve
    got this middle thing here. I can click that and now I can put a curve. So obviously this
    will slow it down at an even pace and this will do it at a curved pace. So slow it down
    a little bit at first and then suddenly it drops off quickly. Or I can have it drop off
    quickly and then the rate of slowing down will change. So I’m just going to go and do the middle
    thing right there. Now when I set the playhead here you can hear it slow down. So there you
    go. I’ve successfully been able to slow this down, just this section of it here. Now if I want to actually use this in a song
    what I want to do at this point, since this tempo track is actually changing everything
    that is going on in this song here, I going to want to export it. So I’m going to go to
    Share, Export Song to Disk and export this out as guitar 2. Then I’ll bring this guitar
    2 into the Garageband composition that has many tracks and all sorts of different things
    in it knowing that I’ve got this slow down part here. I could even, if I wanted to, just slow down
    just a portion of it and use this as a segment to put into a song. I don’t even have to have
    the entire guitar track in here of course. Now if your intention is to actually have
    this fade out as well as slow down then you can click on the Show/Hide Automation button
    here. Now I get a line inside the track and I can Command Click on that and it works in
    a very similar way but the difference being this is volume not speed. So now not only
    will it slow down but it will fade out.

    How To Fix Blind Stems and Gears ~ Getting Vertical ~ Vertical Blinds Repair

    November 25, 2019


    Today what I have to show you is how to replace
    these blind stems. You can see this one here is broken off part of it. So it is not really
    holding the blinds on properly. What I am going to do is remove the next couple slats.
    Just to make this a little bit easier to get at. If the gear back there is bad there is this
    little comb gear here. You can see that there. This one looks like the gear is actually there.
    So let me pop this out. I’ll show you here how to replace these. What you do is just
    pop it over. General pressure it comes right out. See if my gear is in there. It looks
    like it is in there. There is two ways to replace it if it is not. One is you can take
    your new blind stem and you can hold the gear right up against it and than insert both of
    these in there. The other way is to take a pair of pliers and try to push this over in
    there first and than set your blind stem in there. My gear stems gear is actually already in
    there. All we have to do is just pop this in.It just pops in with general pressure,
    generally speaking that is. If it out of step than we can just pop it over. This one looks
    like it is out of step by one. So we just grab it and rotate it over. I should tell you when you are popping these
    in. Right here this is like unfinished sheet metal so be careful. It is sharp. I’ve donated
    blood a few times there.

    Mike Hincks, EXCAVATION DIRECTOR: So what we found down here is Wharfage
    from the mid 19th century coming through to the turn of the 20th century. Where
    I’m sitting right now is a foot of Clyde Street as it appeared in around 1900. Really the shipping industry was very
    important in the 19th century and so we’re looking at this kind of data and
    all this evidence and comparing it to what was happening further down in Cockle Bay and Darling Harbour, across in Balmain and we can compare all that. We have been looking at very large
    events on the waterfront here. We do get glimpses and small windows into the
    everyday lives of people who lived here on Clyde Street. Someone has spent some time down here on the waterfront sitting on the steps carving their initials into
    the end of the jetty. People would have been able to come down the end of the
    street and spend time down here. [ends]

    Basic Dog Training Tips : How to Train a Dog to Stop Barking

    November 16, 2019


    Hi, I’m Jim Leske, animal trainer for Expert
    Village and today’s topic, we’re going to talk a little bit about getting your dog to
    stop barking. It’s amazing how many owners ask this question. And there’s some very very
    simple basic dos and don’t to that. The most common mistake I see so many people make is
    that when their dog is barking, they come up and they pet the dog and they tell them
    how good they are and they tell them to be quiet and reassure them that you’re home and
    here and everything is okay. In human terms, that works, in dog terms what you’re doing
    is rewarding your dog for barking so the best thing to do is not reward your dog for the
    barking. Another good example is that when you come home and the dog is barking at the
    door and you open the door and come in, or even the other way around, if the dog is at
    the door barking and you let him out, you’re still training them to bark and so as an example,
    when they are barking, it’s always no or quiet, use a very stern no voice, be consistent,
    pick a word and stick with it and then reward the quiet. Always reward the right behavior
    and you always end up with a wonderful pet, like Bear and Tess here. I’m Jim Leske and
    thanks for checking in with us. That wraps up our conclusion here of basic dog training
    obedience tips. Thanks for watching.

    How to Train your Puppy to Stop Biting

    November 9, 2019


    tamil hi,Today’s video is sponsored by Petflow puppy biting is an inevitable part of having a puppy But it can also be one of the most frustrating and painful Flurry is just under four months old now and he’s going through a pretty significant puppy biting stage At the Windscreen yeah, I don’t need to windscreen anyway. Today, we’ll show you how to teach your puppy to stop biting you Yeah, this is the right dog for this video click thumbs up for flurry and trust me if you’ve got a puppy You’re definitely going to want to subscribe to my channel Pick up a copy of my book too for the complete guide to raising the perfect dog if you’re new to my videos Understand that I strongly discourage the use of training collars like choke prong and electric collars that’s because those types of collars are Specifically designed to train with pain and that does nothing to promote a bond between a person and a dog That’s the single most important Factor when teaching any dog I want to encourage you to get your pet supplies and your dog food from a company that feels the same way By getting your food Automatically shipped to you from petflow at any time interval you prefer you’re making your life easier and making a statement that you Support companies that put our dogs well-being first. I’ll have a link and a fantastic discount code to get your all set up in the Description below but have you ever heard that when your puppy is biting you like this that you should say ouch and walk away from them ouch And we can definitely say [that] now what we thought that this was a bit of a shallow way to Address this because you’re addressing the symptom the biting and not the cause your dog’s desire to interact with you There are two main reasons that [puppies] bite like this because they’re teething or because they’re trying to engage the world This is how they grab things if your puppy is teething you’ll definitely want to make sure they have Regular access to safe chew toys of lots of different textures now it’s going to take a few weeks to really resolve puppy biting and dogs can be really nippy until they’re about five months old or Even longer if it goes unchecked you must commit to being very patient with them right now you and your dog don’t yet have Really Crystal clear communication together and every interaction you have with them needs to be focused on building that communication Addressing puppy biting is one of the best opportunities to do that in addition to the exercises I’m about to cover make sure you have a strong focus on desensitizing your dog to being touched firmly by a person. I think he’s enjoying the massage So the more they’re used to this the less likely they are to nip at you You know I’ve even heard some dog trainers recommend biting your dog back So they know how it feels, but those are really silly ways to teach it on if your puppy play bites really excessively Then you’ve probably got a high-energy dog If that’s the case then exercise early in the morning and throughout the day is mandatory if you want relief Sooner rather than later Chances are if you’ve got a puppy biter on your hands You’re probably getting pretty good at predicting when they’re about to be bitey for example in Flurry’s case It’s all the time simply hoping for the best and reacting negatively when your puppy bites You is not going to resolve this efficiently fast success comes when you’re one step ahead of your dog now I know you can do this you’re a person there a dog most of you are smarter than your dog I hope first let’s talk about how you need to get good at using a toy to curb puppy biting Since I know that flurry is likely to bite me when I go to greet him I want to be one step ahead of him by having a toy that. I know he likes already with me He likes that snake so look this is okay to bite my flesh is not So we want to continually divert our dog’s attention To the toy the thing that is acceptable to bite over time your dog is going to start to realize alright So there’s some things I’m allowed to buy some other things I’m not just they’re not born knowing this so you have to take the time to teach [them] it’s not reasonable to expect a dog to just be calm all the time your goal should be to get them to release energy and Play when we asked them to rather than waiting for them to ask out on their own So now let’s talk about how to use treats to curb puppy biting I mean your dog has to know the proper conduct when encountering a person remember when your dog is biting You like we’ve been seeing flurry do they’re just trying to engage [you] we just have [to] show them and teach them that we prefer a different kind of engagement a more civilized form of Engagement since I know that flurry is very likely to start biting me when I engage him I’ve got to be one step ahead of Him so I’ve got a treat right here now We’ve done some basic training with him and he knows how to sit and a couple other things I’m going to encourage him to sit for a treat like that. It’s worth noting that many puppy biters Don’t know how to take a treat gently and they really bite your hands while trying to get that treat So if that’s your dog just simply treat them open palm It’s a good idea to have treats easily accessible at all times if you’ve got a new dog Let’s take all of that exuberant energy and turn it into learning power now right off the bat when you’re using treats That’s likely to subdue your dog’s desire to bite Just because they get in Food mode when a dog is in the mood to eat they tend to be a little less bitey since I know flurry is Likely to bite. I’m going to ask him to sit Nice work. Now, you might be wondering “hey, am I rewarding my dog for biting in this situation?” No, you’re not, because we asked him to sit first There ya go, good job bud. So ideally you asked your dog to do something else. Maybe it’s “sit”. Maybe it’s “lie down”. Maybe it’s “come”. That’s a good roll over buddy, and reward for the thing you DO like. so you can see by training like [this] We’re satisfying his urge to want to interact with us and our desire to have a well-behaved dog at the same time. Initiating a 30 second to two minute training session like this teaches your dog to respond to you, rather than simply behaving impulsively. This is why it’s important to make great effort to understand why your dog is acting a certain way rather than simply focusing on correcting unwanted behaviors after they occur. Imagine it if you were really consistent about asking your dog to sit every time you greeted them a thousand times in a row. Your dog would quickly get into the habit of sitting to greet you instead of biting you. How great would that be? Use both of these approaches that we’ve gone over so far and use them often when encountering any dog going through the puppy biting phase. Now, when you notice instances of licking where your puppy used to bite, you’ll know you’re on the right track! And you should notice that becomes a bit more frequent with time. Puppy biting can take anywhere between a couple of days and a couple of months with extreme biters so it’s really important to keep your expectations in line. So what do you do if you’re just hanging out in your caught off guard by the puppy biting? Well, number-one, promptly initiate one of the training sessions that we did today Exercise [your] dog or place them in a boring environment for a few minutes until they calm down a bit Parents of young kids, understand that it’s your responsibility to teach your puppy not to bite, not your kids But you can make it Petflow’s responsibility to get your pet’s food to you I’ll have a link in the description where you can get your dog’s food automatically shipped. You want more great dog training videos, and I really want to make them. Make a voluntary contribution to The Dog Training Revolution on Patreon. That link will be in the description. Give Flurry a thumbs up subscribe to my channel and pick up a copy of my book, Dog Training Revolution. We’ll see you guys in the next video

    Dog Training 101: How to Train ANY DOG the Basics

    October 22, 2019


    This one’s particularly interesting though because we have tons of big hyper dogs now as you know I love working with hyper dogs But trying to convey to people that a hyper dog is a smart dog is sometimes challenging That’s my goal in this class. It looks like a Boxer Pit mix, so we’re thinking We’re gonna teach our dogs to have a look at us by using a hand signal. Dogs are heavily responsive to exaggerated body language so in the beginning it might look something like look at me, like this, really really exaggerating We have a nice tight training problem close eye to eye now. I don’t know biscuit too. Well and if you were me you would be a little cautious about going eye to eye with a dog like this that you didn’t know, and Is he good with strangers, coming into his area? “He is.” “Okay very good look at me. Yes very good this work right here eye to eye I’m gonna hold up the treat Look at me and since I like what he’s doing I’m gonna click because I like that remember the click means “Good dog, I like what you did, you win a prize.” Look at me And I’m taking my time getting them to treat, as long as you mark that Behavior with the clicker, to let them know you like it or yes If you’re not using the clicker, Then you can take your time getting the treat to them. The click marks the behavior not the treat. Most frustrating thing when working with a hyper dog is that they’re so quick it is on us to speed up to keep up with them we’ve got to be able to nail the behavior with a clicker the Instant they do it right so in this case look at me right there. I mean as I was saying it. I had eye contact Right here look at me very engaging you got to keep the rhythm up You got to keep the pace, you’re gonna have to make sure the moment he does something right, you’re there He’s a fast-paced train, a dog like this, so you can’t be too slow within the next five minutes every dog in here should be able to Leave turkey alone when we put it in front of them We’re going to them how to do it, without force, without pulling them away in any way I’m gonna drop it on the ground. However. What’s she gonna do when I drop it on the ground? She’s gonna go for it. Show me a nice loose leash here, no tension, so I’m gonna drop it But I’m not gonna let her get it when she looks away same concept I’m gonna click her, and I’m gonna pick up the treat, and I’m gonna give it to her. Don’t touch this It’s all it’s not so much the words that you’re saying. I think the biggest mistake We make when we’re teaching a dog something new is we save words at them, but there’s very little heartfelt communication Even though she may not know “What don’t touch that” means right now, she feels my energy She knows what I’m going for, and she’s you know, we’ve worked a little bit to build some initial communication, “Don’t touch this please,” I’m not gonna make her wait for an eternity right now. I’m gonna pick it up and give it to her. And then if she’s okay, and no tension on the leash Only because I know cuz I know that’s the instinct, all the more, you should have faith in your communication you should trust that your dog really will know what you mean, if you just take a few minutes to communicate with them more. Training is a concept of training where we use a treat to coax our dog into a specific position So we’re gonna use that nose to our advantage, right here So just like this Good, and we’re gonna say “Sit” as his butt hits the ground. He already knows that. He know how to lie down on command? Somewhat but not really. So we’re gonna use the same concept of training here We’re gonna lure them down. A big mistake that a lot of people make with, oh wow He’s making it he’s making me look good here. A big mistake that a lot of people make with this though, is they do this and well alright Normally they go fast is what they do What you should do is you should let him nibble on it nice and slow. Now if they if they didn’t lie down He’s too good. I need a dog that’s not listening quite that well. Yep. Why am I clicking Delilah right there? She did not lie down, but I clicked anyway. She’s on the right track look. She’s trying It’s it’s vital that when our dogs are on the right track when we’re teaching them something new That we really let him know we like that Yes, right there, that foot came forward, and then let her know I like it. That’s one more step in the right direction Yes, oh I’m gonna reward that cuz that was very good. You see how both of those feet started to move, starting to go into the down Notice the training bubble nice, and low you’re nice and tight. You see this, so with a new dog again this provides You’re very comfortable if your dog and we’re comfortable with her So we’re okay with doing it the next step is one of those feet is gonna move forward at that moment be ready to click Do you know what I’m saying really good. I’m good. I love the kisses. I love the affection there. It’s very genuine It’s very real energy. The more real, the faster your dog learns now. We’ve got our attention You never know when you’re gonna get it, but now that we have it. Yes very good We want to seize that momentum right there, you see what I’m saying? Momentum is a big deal We don’t hear a lot about that dog turning because a moment ago, she was like uh huh I don’t feel like it, but now all of a sudden, those moments go longer and longer. That’s the beginning That’s a sign that you’re on the right track So I got lucky with a group of people here that seem to really get their dogs And you’re very engaging with them be engaging with your dogs And that’s such an impossible thing to really teach and have to come from within but the more sincere you are with your dog, the more likely they are to respond to you. This is one of my new favorite classes really, and I love all of my classes I promise I do, but it seems like these guys really got it. I saw very little frustration Do you prefer working with a high-energy dog or kind of more of a chill, low-key dog? I mean everyone’s different I personally like energetic dogs to work with but that’s me. Let me know in the comments below Also, make sure you are subscribed and make sure you click thumbs up if you like this video And you want more videos like this and like me on facebook facebook.com Slash b zack George, okay.
