Cutting sections with fade-out fade-in?

I’m searching for a way to cut many sections out of a track, which in essence is simple, with Delete. But instead of a pure cut, I’d like the deleted sections to fade-out for 0.5 sec and then fade-in for 0.5 sec. So that it is clear to the listener, in a gentle way, that there was a cut.

Can Audacity do this natively? Or is there any plug-in for this?

Envelope Tool .

Or if you want to do it using the keyboard, install Text Envelope which is a Nyquist plug-in. See here for installation instructions .


Thank you!
