This is probably out there, but it would be SWEET if when you sliced audio, there would be a setting to automatically add fade in and/or fade out around the edit point. Why?
While this may be just habit, I was always told/trained to fade in all audio clips so they don’t “pop” on. There’s always some noise floor. It may not be audible, but its good to do it anyway.
I do a lot of live event production (multi-track) editing, so there is always going to be audible bleed on my tracks. I cut out around what I need, but then fade them in and out. I have keyboard shortcuts to do this, but I could always split and have a 1s or .5s fade. This would save me a TON of time.
Yes, I could do an audio gate, but that would be tedious to set up for the type of work I am doing as the threshold/floor wouldn’t always be the same. It’s also more processing that adds up for about 64 tracks.
Also, a quick search showed that Reaper does this already!
