Thanks for reading this.
I’m really frustrated at not being able to do a simple crossfade. I have three events (wavs?) on a guitar track. The middle one is a punch in that’s only a measure long (actually a copied section from later in the song… a chord that was played better). I’m trying to cross fade it in and out to the wavs before and after so the track doesn’t pop.
Starting with the first one, where the punch-in comes in, I overlap the two wavs a bit (close to 0-crossings), and select them both using Shift, but the Crossfade option under Audio is greyed out!
I found an obscure reference online (not in the Cubase Manual!) that says all of the parts have to be on the same lane. (I guess Cubase puts copied sections on new lanes.) So, I double-clicked one of the wavs and it showed that the punch in was on a seperate lane. I slid it up to the top lane and tried it all over again. Same thing.
What I’m trying to do must be done by thousands of people every day… using a piece of a track to fix a section. Why is there nothing in the manual on what would seem like such a basic task? All I want to do is get rid of the pop in a way that I can see that it was done for future reference. ( I read something about auto-crossfades but I’m skeptical… I’m prepping the songs for the engineer so he doesn’t have to clean up after me.)
Is there a way to do this easily?
Thank you very much for your help. If it wasn’t for you guys here at the forum, I would HATE this software.
By the way, every article and video I have found online (all pertaining to previous versions of Cubase!) says that I am doing it correctly. Did something change in 6? Thanks again.
