Adding lead silence correctly


Recommended Posts



I'm trying to add 4 beats before the start of a song so I can add clicks before the song starts playing. What is the correct way to do that?


What I did:


[*] Added four beats of silence. This works but there are not four measures added in EOF

[*] Tried padding instead of adding, but it moves the beats and the first beat is no longer synced to the fist beat of the song

[*] Tried adding beats, hoping that the first beat would move to the left, but that's not the result I got.


What I'm looking for: My song currently has 87 measures. I want it to have 88, so I can add 4 clicks at the beginning of the song.

Adding four beats generally does what you're looking for. Be aware that the third party stream copy option (using a program called OggCat) doesn't always work, so you may have to use the re-encode option when adding leading silence (which I don't really ever see fail to work).


If something isn't working, I'll need files (audio, .eof project) so I can test with your files specifically.
