Editing Fades

Cubase uses a simple linear fade by default. This default is the rough equivalent of turning a volume knob for the event at precisely the same speed throughout the fade. Although this default fade quite often does the job, Cubase does not restrict fades to this linear shape. Fades can be almost infinitely edited by using the Fade editors.

To edit the curve of a fade

1.
Using the Arrow tool, click an event in which a fade has been created.

2.
Right-click (or single click) and select Audio > Open Fade Editor(s) (Figure 8.32).

Figure 8.32. This menu item opens the window where fades can be edited.


This opens the Fade In editor, the Fade Out editor, or both. Each editor opens only if the event has the type of fade it can edit.

The fade editor shows the portion of the event that is faded in or out. Figure 8.33 shows the Fade In editor with the default linear fade-in.

Figure 8.33. The default fade-in is a simple linear fade.


3.
Click the buttons at the bottom of the editor pane to change the shape of the fade (Figure 8.34).

Figure 8.34. One of the fade curves that is available as a preset in Cubase.


4.
When the fade has the shape you want, click OK.

The curve will be applied to the event in the Project window.
