Increasing the gap between songs on Spotify

[ Edited ]

I know this may sound like some ridiculous request, however, is there any way to configure/increase the gap between songs to something stupid like one minute or something?

 

I say this because although there are some albums that need to be played gapless (and I do appreciate them that way :)) there are some songs that need a minute or so between them. Mainly because it adds to the effect, and mainly because the silence gives me time to actually do some work.

 

Many regards, loyal Spotify premium user!

 

Edit: Well, I know that I can do something really convoluted like record a one minute track of nothing and manually place them between tracks, but short of using the API to programatically do that sort of thing - I don't really want to do that :)

Currently not - Although maybe a certain track by John Cage might provide?

Re: Increasing the gap between songs on Spotify

I'm surprised to not find any current discussion on the issue of gap between songs.

I may be searching these forums incorrectly....

Also, it's entirely possible that I'm missing something in my "preferences" -- I'm new to Spotify.

But I wish I could increase the space between songs as they play. (The default seems to be "gapless" or 1 second, maybe).

ITunes offers options... 2, 3, 4 seconds... Does Spotify offer this? Songs beging too quickly, in my opinion. It's especially jarring if I'm playing an album I'm familiar with from vinyl or from a CD where I know the gaps have been programmed in for a reason.

Thoughts, anyone?

Re: Increasing the gap between songs on Spotify

The first Ipad I had gave some 20 seconds between songs.  The current Ipad doesn't.  Someting peculiar about the first Ipad?

 

If the only solution is the sound of silence, how does one make such a recording.

 

What does Spotify say about the problem?

Re: Increasing the gap between songs on Spotify

I want to space my playlist tracks; at present, even as a pro member, I can't. Please put this (spaces, in seconds) as a preference option.
