Hi People,

Somebody knows of a silent track of a few seconds to use in a playlist between the tracks?

Re: Silent track


Hey there,


Just wondering what your thought process is in having "silence" between each track?

Wouldn't that negatively affect the playlist, because people want to have some kind of a flow when listening?




Re: Silent track


I make use of the silent tracks to create breaks between songs for my POUND Fit classes.

I agree with you about a flow for listening but for my class setting the silent tracks are perfect.

I've been using this 11 second short Silent Track which comes with its own avatar :)


Really useful in my playlists of UK chart hits year by year ( because when a track isn't available (even as unplayable) I use this as a placeholder to indicate there should be a track at that point in the playlist (they are arranged in order of when the track first entered the chart chronologically). That said, 11 seconds is probably a bit too long though as these playlists contain hundreds or even over a thousand tracks and that can also result in a few hundred instances of the silent track in one playlist (the ultimate goal being to eliminate all of these by having all 'hit' songs on the service).

I've had a problem using these silent tracks: instead of hearing a silence I hear a fairly loud blast of white-noise. This is not the case when I listen through a Sonos speaker, but it is when I listen on my phone (through headphones) or on my laptop through the laptop's speakers.


This makes the silent tracks unuseable for me, because I listen through headphones a good bit of the time.


I would like to use very brief silent tracks (1 to 4 seconds) to introduce space between songs when the first song ends very abruptly, and I want there to be a slight pause before going into the next song.

i couldn't find this playlist so it wasn't helpful.  however i found an "album" by mike vargas called sometimes which has several silent tracks of varying length of time and an applause track for after you finish your workout!

Try I Told U Once by Broken Heroes. Lots of silent tracks there of different lengths and no white noise.
