Creating Clip-Based Fades

You can create and edit clip-based fade ins and fade outs. These fades are applied to the audio clip. Events that refer to the same clip get the same fades.


  1. In the Project window, select one or more audio events or a range for which you want to create a fade.

    The length of your selection determines the length of the fade area.

  2. Perform one of the following actions:
    • To create a fade in, select Audio > Process > Fade In.

    • To create a fade out, select Audio > Process > Fade Out.

  3. In the corresponding fade dialog, click the Curve Kind buttons to specify a fade curve, or click and drag with the mouse in the curve display to draw in a curve.
  4. Optional: Click Preview to hear the effect of the specified fade on the selected audio event.
  5. Click Process to apply the fade to the audio event.

    If other audio events refer to the same clip, you can decide how to proceed.


The fade is processed. You can remove or modify the fades at any time using the Offline Process History.
