Fade Dialog for Event-Based Fades

The fade dialog for event-based fades allows you to set up the selected event-based fades.

  • To open the dialog for event-based fades, create a fade for one or more audio events, select the events, and select Audio > Fades > Open Fade Editor(s).


    If you select several events, you can adjust the fade curves for all selected events at the same time. This is useful if you want to apply the same type of fade in to more than one event, for example.

The following options are available:

  1. Presets pop-up menu

    Allows you to set up presets for fade-in or fade-out curves.

    • To apply a saved preset, select it from the pop-up menu.

    • To remove a saved preset, select it from the pop-up menu and click Remove.

  2. Curve Type buttons

    Apply a spline interpolation, a damped spline interpolation, or a linear interpolation to the curve.

  3. Restore

    Click this button to cancel any changes you have made since opening the dialog.

  4. Fade display

    Shows the shape of the fade curve. The darker waveform displays the result, whereas the current waveform is displayed in a lighter shade.

    • To add points, click the curve.

    • To change the curve shape, click and drag existing points.

    • To remove a point from the curve, drag it outside the display.

  5. Curve Shape buttons

    Give you quick access to some common curve shapes.

  6. Length field

    Allows you to enter fade lengths numerically. The format of the values displayed here is determined by the time display on the Transport panel.

    • If you activate Apply Length, the value entered in the Fade Length value field is used when clicking Apply or OK.

    • If you set the current fade as the default fade, the length value is included as part of the default settings.

  7. As Default

    Saves the current settings as the default fade.

  8. Apply

    Applies the current fade settings to the selected events.
