GarageBand regions

In the above image fragment of the GarageBand timeline there is a MIDI (software) Region at the top, followed by an Audio (Real) Apple Loop, a recording made with a microphone (Real), and an Audio file that was dropped into the GarageBand timeline.

Note: An Audio File dropped into the GarageBand timeline, an Orange region, will not respond to tempo or pitch changes. This limitation can be overcome by converting the Orange Region to a Purple region.

If you join two purple regions (audio recordings), the newly created region will be orange. Additionally you no longer need to convert the Orange Region to a Purple region, you need only tick the Follow Pitch and Tempo checkBox in the editor pane.
