Damn, that is one long song. Is it Free Bird by Lynard Skynard by any chance? :lol:

 

Seriously though; Garageband can only do around 30 mins although that can be extended to (I think but am almost certainly wrong) 2.25 hours. So, no, you are right; you can't use Garageband.

 

Adam did suggest something a few shows back I seem to remember. I'm not sure if it was Dougs but it's a great source if it wasn't. If you have trouble trying to find it then it may be worth E-mailing Adam directly or posting in the Follow Up section.

Could be anything live by the Grateful Dead!

 

I replied to a question that was along the same lines. Here's some of the post.

 

Sounds like changing BPM can increase the recording time.

Q. How long can a song be?

 

A. It depends. A GarageBand song can be 999 measures long (that is a hard limit and can not, at this time, be extended), how long that translates to in time depends on the tempo of the song (more beats more minute uses up that 999 faster) and Time Signature.

 

Examples (in hours:minutes:seconds):

 

• a 4/4 song at 120BPM will play for 00:33:16

 

• a 4/4 song at 60BPM will play for 01:06:32

 

• a 12/8 song at 60BPM will play for 01:39:48

 

 

GarageBand 2 can be set down to 40BPM so it can record longer (and in theory, with an AppleScript, can be set all the way down to 1BPM for a record length of well over 99 hours. I’ve done it, but haven’t fully tested it)

I went to dougsapplescripts and I found a script called joined together and chapterize. The only downfall was that I had to purchase Quicktime Pro but I was thinking about doing that anyways.

 

Thanks for all of the help.
