Music is SUPER important to me and my FI...we are using our Ipod during our reception but wanted to be able to edit the songs and transition them from one to another. Audacity: Free Audio Editor and Recorder is a free download that allows you to do this.

 

We're getting all of our music from itunes (to get the best quality sound).

 

The only thing is, is that you can't edit your music from itunes, so you have to convert it to an MP3 first and save it on your hard drive...then edit away...

 

We plan to cut each song to approx. 2 min. each so it won't get boring.

 

MUSIC + ALCOHOL = FUN

One more thing to think about with iPods: sound equalizing. I've been to a few weddings where the couple had pre-loaded their playlists and the one thing that they hadn't thought to do was to make sure that all the songs had been ripped at the same level. Some songs were too quiet, others too loud, and someone had to continually adjust the volume to account for it.

It's easy...just be sure you convert your itunes into an MP3. An easy, but tedious way is to make a CD w/ your itunes then save it back to your computer.

You can't edit itunes b/c of copyright legalities, i think.

actually you CAN do it in itunes!

 

best way to do this is first start by making a playlist with the songs you want. this way it will only shorten it in the playlist and not for the song in the library. click on the song you want to shorten, click get info and then go to options. there should be an option there for you to click a box that says both "Start time" and "Stop time"

 

i did this for a friend's wedding in 2006 because i sang ave maria and i needed to cut some of the intro and the 3rd verse out. it was super easy though! holler if you have questions and I can try to walk you through it.
