Should Playback have a short fade-in to avoid pop/click not actually in the audio?

This would to some degree, make it so you are not actually hearing EXACTLY what the cursor is starting playback on, but would allow one to know that if they do hear a pop/click, that is indeed in the audio.

Playback start must use a fade in as I’ve never heard any clicks here. If you’ve issues you should check your Auto Fades settings - both globally and on a track level.

I don’t use auto-fade and that is for the beginnings and ends of events.

I’m talking about starting playback in the middle of a waveform.

No clicks and pops here.

Yeah I don’t have that happen either.

DC offset maybe?
