Hopefully the lounge is a good place for this:
As well as being a composer myself I'm also involved with the running of a production music library. One of the biggest problems we repeatedly get from composer's music submissions is the poor quality of their 30 second edits. More often than not I end up having to do the cuts for them and I kept promising myself to write a blog article explaining how (and why) to do it well.
So anyway I finally wrote it! Hopefully it will be of use to some of you who are wanting to get into the world of production music. Please feel free to give me your thoughts (like I need to ask people here to express an opinion)!
