Getting a Clean Fade in GoldWave
Hi everyone. This is a problem that I've faced on and off over thetoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
years and I'd be very grateful for any help that will solve the
problem for me in future.
Quite often, I have recordings (radio, music, etc) where I wish to
even off the end but there's only a second or less of space between
the last sound that I wish to keep and the end of the file (including
any catches that may present themselves due to the natural results of
stopping a file's recording or other environmental sounds). I tend to
find that doing a logarithmic fade is much more effective than a
linear fade (the latter seems to work/sound much better with longer
fades) but, on the occasions described above, the lack of space
between the end of the sound recording and the end of the file means
that even a logarithmic fade cannot completely remove the abrupt noise
which I associate with the end of a file unless I compromise the last
syllable or two of the recording (I guess it's just the rough
transition from noise to complete silence without technical
intervention). If the issue that I'm describing makes any sense, I'd
be grateful for advice on how I can best even off the ends of my files
(I suppose I'm looking for the audio equivalent of sanding down the
edges of a piece of wood).
Really sorry if this is all just waffle and, of course, thanks in
advance for any help.
Take care, Danny

How about inserting half a second of silence at the end of the piece on
which you desire to make the fade?

Hi Colin. Thanks for that suggestion. I'd already tried that but Itoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
felt it still wasn't getting the desired results. I guess it can be a
matter of milliseconds, so if I mucked around for long enough that
principle might work. :)
