Hi All,



Have compiled a digital ripped playlist, using WMP, from my CD collection based on an OOP vinyl-only release.


Is it at all possible to add more silence between two of the ripped songs in particular?

If so, how?


I ask because, on the vinyl-only release, there is more silence between said particular songs as there is a change of pace. On the digital ripped playlist this silence is markedly shorter and really does unsettle the pacing to the point where it's distracting and disappointing.


All the songs are available for download but not in non-lossy format, AFAIK. The ripped playlist is for personal enjoyment only - for the memories.

Hi,  If you use Audacity you can edit tracks to add silence at the end of tracks or even at the beginning of one, too.  Here is the main manual but here is the menu I think you are looking for. 


Hope this helps.
