How do you edit downloaded songs on Apple music?
You are unable to make any changes to the songs once they have been downloaded from Apple Music. It’s possible that this is why the modifications aren’t being accepted at this point. The songs you stream via Apple Music do not have the same ‘rights’ as the songs you buy from iTunes. Because of the DRM protection, no changes may be made.
How do you shorten a song in iTunes and save it?
It seems that no one has responded in quite some time. Simply posing a new inquiry will kick off a new round of the dialogue. The duration of a specific song that is already stored in my iTunes library is something that I would want to modify on occasion (s).
- When I was a radio DJ, I used to spin records by hand on the record player.

- In response to Lead Bass’s comment on August 7, 2009 8:51 PM as a reaction to Lead Bass Execute command-i on the track, and then navigate to the settings tab to make changes to the end time.

- This does not in any way permanently change the length of the music.
- You are free to rewind the clock anytime you see fit.
- Pick the tracks, then select “Create AAC version” from the context menu using the right mouse button if you want to permanently cut the songs to certain timings.
- AAC will be whatever format is selected in iTunes’ preferences under the General heading in the Importing section.) Additionally, you have the option of using a tool like Rogue Amoeba’s Fission to make permanent and lossless edits to the files.
Aug 7, 2009 8:53 PM In response to Lead Bass’s comment on August 8, 2009 at 1:13 AM as a reaction to Lead Bass I interpreted your query in two different ways.1. To cut down the length of your music in iTunes, follow the advice of many who came before you and choose Info (command-I) for the track in question before going to the Options tab and entering in a new starting or end time (00:00.00).
- This is also possible with individual tracks on a compact disc.
- In any case, re-importing that music into iTunes (in whatever format) will cause iTunes to start and stop the import process at the positions that you have specified as the beginning and ending locations.
- This is something that I often perform in order to maintain the smallest possible size for my AAC files (especially with CD tracks that have hidden songs).
You will not be able to make a track play for a longer period of time by entering a timeframe that is longer than the track’s actual run time.2. The duration of a song can also be altered using a tool that is not included with the music itself. I modify the length of a song by starting with an AIFF version of the track (which has either been re-imported from the CD or converted from the AAC/MP3) and then utilizing the free software that can be downloaded at audacity.sourceforge.net to make the necessary adjustments.
You have the ability to edit the music by slowing it down without altering the pitch, slowing it down with a change in pitch, (and vice versa for speeding it up), and adding silence to the beginning or finish of the track for whatever purpose is also easy to accomplish. I slow down the recordings of my favorite songs using this method in order to learn the guitar parts for certain songs, since it makes them easier to learn at first.
Aug 8, 2009 1:23 AM in response to Lead Bass’s comment posted at 5:35 AM on August 8, 2009 as a reaction to Lead Bass A third possible interpretation of the question is as follows: when you are DJing, you could suddenly decide that you’ve had enough of one song and want to cross-fade into the following option.
- ITunes is not capable of doing this task since the cross-fade function only activates after the music has reached its predetermined conclusion.

Is there any way to fix this? Have you signed up for a subscription to Apple Music?

If it is read-only or if your account does not have write access, this might possibly be the cause of the problem you are having.
