Adjust Start And Stop Times In iTunes

iTunes has a handy but little-noticed feature that lets you specify when a given track should start and stop, a potentially useful option if you want to cut out unwanted material or meandering endings.

Music gossip site Popjustice reminded me of that option when it applied that approach to a new single by UK singer Alesha Dixon, the first 19 seconds of which it describes as "2010's worst portion of recorded sound". It could also be useful with live recordings if you want to eliminate pre or post-song chatter and focus the actual tune. To access the option, right-click on a track, select "Get Info", choose the Options tab and select your start and/or stop times.


    Great tip Angus, thanks. The long, drawn-out endings have always bugged me with "Request Line" by Black-Eyed Peas feat. Macy Gray, and "Doo-Wop (That Thing)" by Lauryn Hill. Fixed now!
