I see the official style guide says that remastered recordings should be merged with the original recording. However, what about the case where the length of the remastered version differs from the original?
For example I’m merging these recordings where the original release is 4 seconds longer than the remastered version. This would lead to the wrong track length on the release containing the remastered version if you let it set the track length based on the recording. Is this expected?
EDIT: I just noticed the examples at the bottom of the page that show that this exact issue is expected but I can’t delete this post so I’m just editing it to say I don’t need an answer after all.
