Select the number of bars you would wish to cut.

For example, I have considered bars 3 and 4 of my track for cutting. I will select Bar 3 as of now before I give the cut command.

Step 4: Give the cut command.

To give the cut command, click command + T. The bar where you have placed your cursor (Bar 3 as our example) will be selected. Now you need to go to the end of bar 4 and click there and give a Command+T again to choose the two bars successfully. 

Step 5- Copy and Paste

Once you have created a cut in your track, you must successfully copy it. To copy, click command + C. Once it is copied, you may go to any bar where you would like to paste the cut track. To paste, you will have to give the paste command, which is Command+V. This will paste your track as your designated bar. I have chosen Bar 8 to have my cut track paste; therefore, Bar 8 and 9 will have the same track as Bar 3 and 4.

This completes the process of cutting and autotuning in GarageBand.
