Song Spacing


Getting the right gap between songs seems to be a lost art. This is probably due to the emphasis on single songs in the download world.

I notice that amateur records tend to have much shorter gaps than professional records. I've heard gaps up to eight seconds long.

Do you have any rules or philosophies when it comes to song spacing that you would like to share with us?

Love your work!

Keep it flowing. Sometimes loud songs against loud songs sound best with a tight gap.. after soft songs some space is nice. Eight seconds is ridiculous!

There is no rule. It's all about feel.
