The fade setting is on, by default, for music clips, because this is generally how it'll sound best, but you can turn it off any time you like.

In summary:

  • Set how long your two clips overlap using the time selector. This is how long the clips will play together, during the transition.

  • Use Fade Out to gradually fade out the 1st clip over the full length of the overlap.

  • Use Fade In to gradually fade in the 2nd clip over the full length of the overlap.

As a guide: Use Fade In/Out on music clips, but NOT on voice clips.

You generally want voice to be full volume right from the start to the end, unless you have a really good reason otherwise.

And you generally want music to fade out at the end, or in at the start, to create a nice transition effect.

1. In your Episode Builder, click the transition icon between your recordings.

2. Set the overlap time by entering the number of seconds in the allotted time field or by clicking the - and + icons.

3. Choose whether you want to apply the transition as a fade-out of the first clip or a fade-in to the second clip.

4. Click the 'Preview' button to listen to the transition.

5. When you’re done, click the 'Save' button.

That’s done!
