Default Shortening the length of a song

Probebely a simple question, how do I shorten the length of a song? I have about 20 seconds of blank @ the end- when I bounce down to MP3, I don't want the file to contain that blank. Thanks.

Default Re: Shortening the length of a song

In my experience, that's not as simple a question as you would like. But what I've done is to edit the file down to where I want it and then select that region in the region list on the right and use the "Compact Selected..." menu item in the region pull-down. Another option is Duplicate (in the AudioSuite menu) the section that you want to keep as the song.

------------------
AND FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, GIVE US MORE THAN ONE UNDO.

Smooches,
Tor

Just select the main part of the song [start to end] and leave out the Blank space and when you bounce to disk it will only bounce what is selected[highlighted] make sure the reverbs are fully decayed at the end part!!!!
