|I'd appreciate some help please with doing a simple fade out in MP3DirectCut.
If I just load an MP3 file, go to the end of the recording via the "End" key, then make a left click a few seconds before the end, it is then possible to consistently create a neat fade to silence via the Edit | Create Simple Fade menus, or via Ctrl-F.
My workflow though is slightly different.
A - Taking a newly loaded MP3, I will first trim some material from the front, by selecting the region to delete via left and right clicks on the track (creating a cyan selected zone) then pressing the "Delete" key.
B - Next, I will move to the tail end of the track by pressing the End" key of the keyboard, and again trim some material off by creating a cyan selected zone in the same way and again pressing the "Delete" key.
C - I now come back a few seconds from the trimmed end, define an edit point by left click, and then try any of the provided techniques of:
2. Edit | Create Simple Fade
3. Pulling down the gray level 'node' at the end of the track. (This normally attenuates the whole track, not the last few seconds)
It seems impossible to create a simple fade out after doing steps A and B using any of the step C options. If I just do step C on a virgin track, it seems to work fine.
Clearly I am not using the User Interface correctly. Please could you tell me how I should be doing Step 3 of my workflow?
