How to fade an effect?

    I want to know how to have 1 track, and add an effect at the beginning (or end) and have it fade into another effect or the regular track. I know how to make 1 track have 2 effects, but it just abruptly cuts off, and sounds like crap. I use Audio Studio 2004 by the way. Any tips or suggestions would be great, and if anyone is willing to walk me through this step by step my AIM is Wombat Assault.

    Try this...
    1 track clean (no effect)
    another track (or track 2) with the 1st effect
    seperate track (or track 3) with the 2nd effect

    That's a total of 3 tracks. Hope that makes sense. Now all you have to do is record those 3 tracks. And mix them down to your taste. The best thing about doing it this way is that one track can start at any time you want, and the other can have the different effect(s), and start whenever you feel is appropriate. You should have NO PROBLEMS getting the result you want doing it this way.
    Hope this helps
    Good luck

    Cross-fade isn't doing it for you?

    Most hosts (Dunno about Audio Studio) have auto cross-fade features that you could take advantage of.

    In a modular host like energyXT, Bidule, or the racks in Tracktion, you could use tricky routing and automation to do it instead of cross-fading the whole track.

    I love Sequoia!
    split the track into 2 objects - object 1 gets 1 effect, object 2 the other and then simply crossfade between the 2.

    Sorry- doesn't help you...

    you'll have to set-up Aux buses and screw with automation.

    I've heard of crossfade, and seen it in the sequencer, but have no idea how to use it
