It's time to listen through the radio edit from start to finish, paying careful…attention to the sections that have been edited.…I like to double- and triple-check these sections for any pops, clicks, missing…crash cymbals, or things of that nature.…At this time I will remove the intro and outer regions from the club mix that we no longer need.…Select all and move everything over to Measure 1.…As we listen through, keep in mind that we are not listening to a final mix;…what we are listening to is a final arrangement.…
So we are simply listening through to make sure that all the parts that we want…in this radio edit are there, and that there is a seamless flow at each edit…point that I created in the previous movie.…(song playing)…Excellent! I am happy with all of that. The one thing that caught me right here is I think…it would be a better ending if I copied and pasted in this clap pattern that…happens at measure 79 over to the very end.…
I think it sets up the ending a little bit better. It just builds, doesn't just end.…
