Hi! I know! I know! It's been a gazillion years since I've logged in here. It seems the universe has been playing a game of "Perfect Storm" with me for the last few months (or has it been years?!). But I digress...
I'm trying to tidy up my huge collection of home recorded MP3s and for starters I'd like to trim (or extend them) so that they all have a uniform silent segment at the beginning and end of each track.
I'm an old guy and I'm used to having a second or two (or three) in between songs.
I'm thinking that if I would like to have 3 seconds between songs on my playlists, then I could trim each MP3 so it has a 1.5 second lead in and the same for a tail out.
But, I'm wondering if there might not be a universal standard that I should get into the habit of observing, so that my home recorded MP3s will be compatible with the ones I buy from amazon.com and elsewhere.
Is there a consensus on this?
P.S. When I click on "Preview Post" my screen just goes completely white and blank. (It's probably this danged "new" computer my cousin gave me a year-and-a-half ago and which I still haven't figured out how to use. It's running Windows 7, which drives me nuts! )
