how to fade in ( over more than one audio clip)

Post by derwall » Wed Nov 16, 2011 11:01 pm

Ive recorded an audio sample that is 2 bars long. I then duplicate the same sample clip in the track arrangment to play for 3 or 4 minutes.

trouble i have is, when i try to use the fade-in option i can only fade-in over the 2 bars of the first sample clip. Abbleton wont allow the fade-in to continue past the frist sample clip onwards.

What im after is a much more gradual fade in over 8 or 10 bars, which means fading-in over 5 or 6 audio sample clips.

Anyone know how this can be done?


Im using live 8 suite.

You could also use the 'unlink' function in the clip itself and have independent control of the fade envelope over the length of the clip.

Here's a pretty good idea.
