Q. I deleted a lot of the recording in Apple's GarageBand, yet the project's file size stayed the same?

A. GarageBand's edits are "non-destructive." Nothing is actually cut, only what is displayed is cut, the file is unaffected.

It's one of the strengths of ...

Apple's GarageBand in that you can freely experiment without worrying about messing things up. If something you try doesn't work out to your satisfaction, change it by stretching the leftover region, the original bits will appear as they are still there in the recorded file. The only time a file is actually deleted is if its entire region is deleted from the project, and the project is saved.

There is one trick you can use...

to force edits to become actual changes in the file. Record a moment of silence on another track. Option-Drag this new region to the end of the region you wish "destructively" changed. Select both regions and use the Join menuItem. Repeat this for all tracks you wish permenantly changed, and then Save the file.
