Instrumentals & Cues. What's the difference?

Post by MickLee » Tue Oct 05, 2021 10:30 am

Hi. What's the difference between an instrumental & a cue, is it just the length? About 2 to 4 minutes long for Instrumentals and 90 seconds to 2 minutes for Cues?

This is definitely a FAQ. Did you try a search on the Forums? Here's a couple of results I found.

Could we have a section of the forum for sticky-worthy topics, such as this?

Thanks. I did do a search but still couldn't find a definitive answer, which is why I asked here. Michael's video solved it however, & he should know: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cq_c-2M0rKo
