If you want to cut the start of a song in iTunes, follow these steps:
- In iTunes, right-click on the song
- Select â€˜Get Infoâ€™
- Choose the â€˜Optionsâ€™ tab
- Enter a new â€˜Start timeâ€™, eg 0:15 if you want to cut out the first 15 seconds.

And if you donâ€™t like something at the end of a track? Then change the â€˜Stop Timeâ€™ in step 4.
Any idea why the length of a song changes in iTunes when I click song info and adjust the title, name or remove artwork? And if so, know of any ways to change it beyond the above?
I’m experiencing a similar glitch where in iTunes will play the entire song but it does not end. The track length is 50% longer than it should be, and for good reason: it restarts the song halfway through, tagged right onto the end. Looks to be a unique problem, not seeing a large occurrence in my Google searches. And the description of the error is too lengthy to yield better search results. I’m stuck. Any guidance would be appreciated
I have trimmed a backing track in itunes but when I upload it to OnSong it reverts back to the original. Is there anyway that the track can be trimmed so that the shortened version uploads?
While track is selected, go to File – Convert – Create AAC Version
Thank you for your reply, which, unfortunately, it took me ages to find the reply. Nonetheless, I tried what you said, and it said that it could not be converted as it’s protected.
I have a tune that lasts for 2mts 03, as it’s a short piece I would like it to start again, hence I would like to change the STOP options on Edit/SongInfo/Options, but everytime I save the changes it doesn’t hold. I have ITunes version 12.10.0.07
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you
