How to fade in an audio effect?

Post by BeastMaster64 » Fri Nov 06, 2020 7:22 pm

I need a part in my audio to gradually get more muffled? I know how to make it muffled by not how to fade it in? I don't know if anyone can help me with this or if it's even possible.

crossfade between muffled & non-muffled versions

Select the part of your track that you wish to fade then select Effect from the main menu, then Amplify. In the dialog that opens move the Amplification slider down (left) to about -10dB. Then either preview and adjust or hit ok. This method may end up sounding a bit abrupt.
Crossfade (https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/cro ... racks.html) works much better for me. Crossfade gives a smooth transition rather than an abrupt jump.

@ merlinpendragonx

Unfortunately you quoted a post from a user that had embedded hidden spam in their post. That triggered the forum security which then blocked your account. Fortunately I spotted the error and I've hopefully fixed it, but if you have problems logging in to the forum, please use the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of the page to report the problem. (Include a link to this page so that the system administrator knows what you are referring to).

Sorry for any inconvenience.
