I just discovered the "Start Time" and "End Time" settings in the track editor. Perfect timing as I was looking for a way to cut out the studio chatter from some of the alternate tracks included with the new super deluxe edition of a Charlie Brown Christmas. That said it triggered a few suggestions I wanted to share:
- If I set, save and then uncheck the start and/or stop time the values should remain. So, if and when I check them again, the previous values are assumed as a starting point. It took me some time to find exactly where I wanted these set and it was frustrating to lose them just because I unchecked them for a listen or two
- Allow multiple start / stop times - a bit of a stretch but I found some songs (medleys) I wanted to break into pieces. A way to indicate track 2a (start/end) 2b (start/end) etc. Would be nice, if possible.
- cut out a section of a track, vs just the start/end. Again, would allow someone to clean out studio chatter, etc.
- Another stretch - it would be nice to indicate start/end times only when not listening to the album in order. In other words, when listening to the album I want to ignore my start/end times BUT if listening to a track in isolation, an album on random or listening to a track as part of a playlist it would be nice to recognize the start/end times. This would allow someone to keep the flow of an album, including listening to studio chatter, etc. but still use a "cleaner" cut of a track in a playlist.
