For ambient field recordings, I just got done testing various combinations and it seems that the following combinations work very well:
Cross-Fades: Fade-In: “Sinusoid” and Fade-Out: “Logarithmic” (when removing segments or cutting material). Short timings work sometimes, long ones almost always.
Fade in: “Sinus” (1 sec +)
Fade out: “Sinusoid” (1sec +)
I am curious to hear about your experience when working with the different fade curves on various materials (for intros, outros or cross-fades). If you could share your experience, I think we can build a nice goto reference thread.
Which fade curve combinations work best for various audio material? How long do you set your fades (milliseconds / seconds).
