  1. Open your GarageBand project: Start by opening the GarageBand project that you want to export. Make sure that your project is fully mixed to your satisfaction, as this will be the final version of your audio file before mastering.

  3. Choose the File menu: From the GarageBand menu, choose File > Export > Song to Disk.

  4. Choose the file format: In the Format section, select WAV. The WAV format is a common audio format that is widely compatible with other audio software and mastering tools. 

  5. Choose the destination folder: In the Save As section, select the location where you want to save your exported WAV file. You can either choose an existing folder or create a new one.

  6. Export the WAV file: When you are ready to export, click on the Export button. GarageBand will then render your audio project and export it as a WAV file. The export process may take a few minutes, depending on the length of your project and the quality of the export.

  7. Verify the exported WAV file: After the export is complete, navigate to the destination folder and verify that your WAV file has been exported correctly. You can do this by playing the file in a media player or by importing it into another audio software for further processing.
