Selecting Start Position for a track

Josh Mar 02, 2018 07:36PM CET

I know this question was asked over a year ago, but I did not see any updated answers since and could not find it addressed in the app store version history section.

I wanted to know if there have been any updates regarding selecting the specific start position in a track on the iphone app. For example, is there a way to skip over some of the long intros in songs by moving the left-hand waveform onto the right-hand waveform. If not is there any plans for adding this feature in the near future?

Please advise.

Thank you.

Hey Josh,

Yes - with Pacemaker for iPhone you can now crop the start of tracks by opening the Pacemaker studio.

Tap on the white section where the two tracks overlap and then drag the bottom of the left marker to the right ---> to crop the track. You might also need to move the right marker in the same way to get to the position where you want to crop the song. If you need more help with this, let me know and I can go into more detail.

I’m not tech savvy at all so this app is very confusing for me. I just would like to put the drop of one song, into another. I really can’t figure out how to transition songs and mix them to where I want and the tutorials aren’t helping at all. Is there any assistance you can provide?

So I am using pacemaker to combine 2 song together. I already have the 2 songs combined but I can’t figure out how to cut the last song at a certain point in the song. It is my last song in the combination Of songs. I just need it to end at a shorter point then it does

Hey Kylie,

Unfortunately today you cannot crop the start of the first track or crop the end of the last one. We'd love to add this in the future though.
For now as a workaround, we'd recommend adding a short sound effect, perhaps clapping at the end of your mix or something like a 'silent' track into your mix. You'll then be able to crop these. Hope this helps.
