Leaving noise or count-offs like drum sticks in a song intro is a sure sign of the demo recording, and it is something that no one wants to listen to. (music playing) First make the splice from count-off to the downbeat of the track, then mute the count-off just in case you ever need it again. Now use the Fade up before the song starts. (music playing) Just make sure that you don't cut off the attack of the downbeat, clean intros are a sign of our professional mastering job.
It only takes a minute to make a big difference in how your song is perceived.
