A. As long as you have at least version 6.0.5 of GarageBand on your Mac... with your iPad connected to your Mac through its USB cable, tap My Songs in GarageBand for iPad and swipe to find the project you wish exported. Then tap the Edit Button at the top right , tap the export icon at the top left and choose Send to iTunes, and in the Choose Format dialogueBox tap GarageBand.

You're now done with the iPad part. Open iTunes on your Mac

and select your iPad in the left hand column of iTunes. Toward the top of the window select Apps and scroll to the bottom of the page. In the left hand scrolling list, click on GarageBand, which will display all projects you've exported from your iPad.

Select the project you want and click the Save To button.

Save the song where you wish and then you can open it with GarageBand on your Mac. It will immedietely ask you to save a copy of it (in the proper format for the desktop), do so, and you're ready to fine tune your project from GarageBand for iPad in GarageBand for OS X.

Note: if this is the first time you're doing this, GarageBand for OS X will need to download some files to update itself.
