    I'm working on an album at home that I'm going to have mastered after I finish mixing it. I have one thing left to track and it's about a 30 second piano part that I want to use as a prelude to a song. I think I would like the piano part to be in the negative space or negative time (I forgot what you call it) before the song. How would I arrange this? Would I track the piano part on the same file it's preluding? Or would I track the piano part as it's own song? And how easy is this to do? If it's going to cost me another hours worth of master I'd rather not do it.

    Thanks for the help,

    easy enough. You can do it either way. Should take all of 5 seconds during mastering to set it up, just double check with your mastering engineer to make sure they are able to do this.
