Q. If I add an effect to a track, or cut part of a region in Apple's GarageBand, then change my mind , am I SOL (So Outta Luck)?

A. Not at all, GarageBand's effects are "non-destructive," rendered in Real Time as GarageBand play's back audio. In other words, the effects are not actually recorded, your original recording is never changed. Simply turn off or modify any effect at any time.

It's one of the ...

strengths of Apple's GarageBand in that you can freely experiment with effects without worrying about messing things up. If something you try doesn't work out to your satisfaction, change it, or simply turn it off.

This holds true for edits too. Nothing is actually cut, only what is displayed is cut, the file is unaffected. Drag the bottom left or right edge to reveal the missing portion(s).
