Following Track Transition: Tonic (root)

‘The Age Of Love’ was one of the rare times during the editing process where I had to actually go back and work in tandem with the previous track, as I had a pretty solid arrangement worked out for the track, but I had to go back and tailor the outro for ‘Love Stimulation’ previously to fit in correctly.

I began my editing for  ‘The Age Of Love’ by shortening the intro to fit over 32 bars, giving enough time for a 16 bar intro under ‘Love Stimulation’ and then a 16 bar build up before the track marker hit.

From this point I modified the build up before the first break to 48 bars, and during the first break I removed the last 8 bars and replaced them with the last 8 bars of the second breakdown to allow it to flow into the final section easier.

Once the track kicked back in, I shortened the final passages to flow over 64 bars, with the final 16 bars edited so that they contained enough musical elements to keep the flow going for when ‘Café Del Mar’ is introduced at 3:47. To finish things off, I pasted the final synth sweep from ‘Age Of Love’ onto the beginning of ‘Café Del Mar’ to enhance the transition between the two tracks.
