I saw a youtube video where a guy broke down how to sample/chop in GB. In the video he chop what he wanted and dragged it in the musical keyboard. Does anyone know if that is possible to do in GB 2? I haven't been able to do in my older version of GB, Any help is very much apprecciated.

If by "sample" you mean using someone's copyrighted material without their permission, I want to remind you that it is against copyright law to do so and it is against iCompositions' Terms of Service (which you agreed to when you signed up) to upload a song which uses copyright material without permission.

Do you you have the Instrument Generator called 'Sound Effects' in GarageBand2 ?. It is in GB 4. I don't have GB2 anymore. I think you need the Sound Effects generator.

It is very cool. The classic 1st fun is to make your own mouth drum set . And in GB you can do it very quickly by recording your voice to a track and drag choppped up mouth hits to separate keys. Great fun!

From GB3 and up.
Keys will only play what you drag on them.
You can edit the sound with some freeware as Audacity before.

maco.

That video somewhat simplistic. Consider that the technique demonstrated is for a kick drum and not how to steal music.
Just on a side note that type of "sampling" works better on your own music because imported tracks don't respond well to substantial changes in pitch, key or BPM. Generally speaking if those type of details are kept in mind and you make adequate adustments to volume, peak, echo and ASD, then it may work and you may also occasionally come across some "happy accidents" as well.
As for GB and it's capabilities, we could talk forever about this.

Use the program "Audacity" to alter sound files in tempo and pitch.
