I know there's a way to shorten total song length, but is there a way to knock of some time in the beginning of the song as opposed to the end? I've got a nice song all sequenced but the only problem is that it takes a good 20 seconds before it really starts going and I don't want to leave people hangin.

You can use Audacity program (it is free). Open the song and you can highlight and cut the dead air out. Then save it as a new song file. It should work.

I understand that you have finished sequencing the whole song and now wish to remove 20 second from the beginning. Here is the procedure I use in this instance:

1. Edit music (Song1) to the new length you wish to use (Song2). I find it advisable to have about .5 to 1 second of dead air at the beginning for "adjusting purposes.

2. Create a new musical sequence using Song2. Don't forget to import your channel configuration.

3. Open Song1's sequence and move the the point that you believe Song2 to begin. Using the Select tool highlight the top cell at this point, move to the end of the Song1, hold down the shift key, and highlight the bottom last cell.

4. Copy

5. Return to Song2's sequence, move into the cell that is at the end of the "dead air" and Paste into the top row.

6. With luck the timing should be very close. If not use the dead air area to adjust the paste to get the timing right on.

This is how a I have modified music after everything is sequenced. Hope it works for you.
