Is it possible to manually define a custom icon on track in GarageBand? Having something like a usericon I see on web sites makes knowing whose track I'm editing much easier than having to read relatively small text with the person's name on it.
According to this article:
There is some code somewhere in GarageBand that allows you to expand the number of icons you can use. But dog if I know where it is. There are two things you can do, either spring for a JamPack and let it automatically expand your icons, or replace ugly or stupid icons (there are plenty) with the ones you want. As to the "How to", go to the link below and download my custom icons and directions to accomplish this. http://garritan.com/GPO-GarageBandPage.html Here is a direct link... http://garritan.com/support/GB_Icon_Set.zip To make your own icons, just open one of the triads in Photoshop and then save as a tif file.
It is possible, but not easy. Its a bit of a hack.
Details are in this article.
