Fade in & fade out audio

Fade in and fade out audio

The effect of fade in and fade out audio is similar in nature to how an old tube TV turns on and off, only in the case of a TV, the image is manipulated, and with audio, the sound.

Fade in – is a smooth increase in the volume of the sound in order to make its inclusion less sharp and easier to perceive.

Fade out – the reverse fade in effect, is a smooth fade in volume.

Among all the techniques of amateur sound processing, the above are the most popular today. Using these effects is great for creating ringtones, smoothing out blemishes and sudden changes in sound, using them in voiceovers when recording podcasts or videos, and more.

Previously, to achieve the effects of attenuation or smooth increase in volume, it was necessary to do difficult manual work, but now all this can be done in seconds using a regular computer.

As a rule, the duration of the increase in volume is shorter than the decay, and is about 1-2 seconds. The fade usually lasts about 5 seconds.

If you’re voicing a video, make sure the audio and video are the same length before uploading to avoid out-of-sync.
