trying to compress a song

Post by morty » Sun Jun 22, 2014 10:32 am

I took a pre recorded song from a cd its 12 minutes long loaded into mixcraft tried to delete the first 6 minutes but the rest I want but somehow I cant bring the rest of the song to the beginning of the track to just record and burn that portion onto a new cd?

what am I doing wrong?

Never done this before but of the top of my head:

Mix the track down to a wav.
Bring the wav back into MC and see if you can do what you want that way?
Win 8.1
8 gig ram
AMD A4 6210 1.8 GHz
Focusrite solo.

I think what you want to do is described in the fourth part of this page of this thread:

Split the track where you want it to start, then delete the bit you don't want. You'll then be able to shift the remainder to the start.
Keep on trackin'
