How to Mix a short song into a longer song.

PostFri Jul 05, 2019 4:11 pm

Hi,

I have a 1min song that i would like to turn into a 5min track.
I don't wanna put on on a loop.

I tried to mix it many times, but you can always hear a spot where a song start over
It is just gonna be a background music.

Is there some trick to this or it just takes some talent and a lot of practice?

Where you choose to edit copies of a track together will not always be just cutting the end of one and the beginning of the next. You have to get the beat right, matching instrumentation at the edit point, and making sure it works musically. If it won't hard cut try a cross fade from one to the other. Just don't expect to join five copies of the track together to get one five minute piece. You may need to use more to add a variety of edits to give you the finished track.

Adobe audition can do this for you in about 4 clicks. Works perfectly in most cases.
