You can create real-time fades and crossfades in the Track view’s Clips pane. Real-time fades and crossfades do not change the data in the clip. SONAR reads the fade-in, fade-out, or crossfade in the clip and adjusts the gain accordingly. You can edit the crossfade’s start time and end times. You can set the type of fade-in or fade-out you want to use as a default:
Linear. A straight line, raising or lowering the volume at a steady rate.
Slow Curve. A curved fade which starts to change the volume slowly at first and then rapidly increasing (fade-in) or decreasing (fade-out) the volume.
Fast Curve. A curved fade which starts to change the volume quickly at first and then rapidly decreasing (fade-out) or increasing (fade-in) the volume.Click the Track view Options menu, point to Crossfade Type and select the desired default Fade-In, Fade-Out and Crossfade curve types.
