7 Tips For Perfect Song Segues

7 Tips For Perfect Song Segues

by Tracy Johnson

If you’re on a music station, every single thing that happens is important. That’s particularly true for song segues. How songs fit together in the fabric of your grand is critical to the listening experience.

Music scheduling software and automation systems can make a station sound good because they can perfect the mechanics of recorded presentation. It’s consistent and tight. In this regard, automation is far superior than human intervention in the science of performance.

But no matter how precisely each track is edited and transition points marked, technology can’t adjust based on the following element. But you can. Humans paying attention to the music mix can make a station sound great, and this is a key advantage as we face pressure for TSL from digital music services.
