Project properties overview
Each GarageBand project has properties that include the project tempo, key, and time signature. You can set project properties when you create a project, and change them later while you’re working. Some project properties, such as tempo, should be set when you create the project if possible, because they can affect the playback of recordings or media files you add to the project.
You can change project properties in the LCD, located in the center of the control bar.
