    Default How do I alter song length?

    I'm back from my spring hiatus (super busy work and family life) and getting back to Christmas work. I've received my LOR 2.9.4 and controllers and am getting this party started.

    The first issue I've encountered is with the music files. Is it possible to shorten the length of a song; ie. only play a specific portion?

    Thanks for everyones help in advance and I look forward to seeing you all at the next TASL meeting.

    Austin,

    Audacity is a free program that will allow you to do that. Just search for Audacity. Now here comes the commercial plug. I offer an editing service for those that do not have the time or the know how. Just visit my site for info. www.thedementedelf.com
    Demented? yes but in the best possible sense.

    Austin -

    Kevin (The Demented Elf) beat me to it.

    He does very good work,if you want someone else to do it for you.

    Audacity is a very good free package that will let you cut down the length of songs, combine music, etc. I have heard (on a podcast about podcasting) that there is a cut-at-zero crossing option that will adjust your cut/deletion point to the nearest zero crossing point so that no "pop" will be generated. I haven't verified that yet.

    Also, look up another free program called "mp3gain" which will adjust an MP3 tag value so that all your MP3's will be the same volume, so one isn't played at low volume, the next at high volume, and the third some place in the middle. It will sample all selected songs and average out the output, and change the MP3 relative volume tag so you have better control.

    Thanks all and I know I'll be calling on Kevin for some voice overs in the future as well.
