Audacity Fade Out / Fade In

In another article we have already shown how you can adjust the volume in Audacity that you have marked in a certain range. In this way, you can ensure an even change. But it is also useful to use Fade Out or Fade In in Audacity, because you can, for example, music or podcast for a pleasant harmony and fade. Therefore, today we would like to show how you can make the sound louder in Audacity or also how you can become quieter at the end and thus, for example, let the piece of music fade out. There is a separate function for this in Audacity, so you don’t have to do this work manually. If, on the other hand, you want to know how to make a track quieter in Audacity, you’d better check out the post linked above.

Also suitable for professional commentaries:

You may have noticed something like this on TV. Background noise becomes quieter when the presenter starts and louder when the speaker takes a break. This makes it possible to always provide the best volume for the listener. It can also be worthwhile to turn down your background music in Audacity when you want to explain something. This also gives a very professional impression, which the listener may not notice immediately, but still registers subconsciously. So try it out!

Step-by-step instructions:

  • Paste your audio track into Audacity
  • Select the area you want to edit
  • Go to “Effect” -> Fade Out (to get quieter), Fade In (to get louder)
  • There are no settings here, your selection will be adjusted directly
  • Done!

With this simple method for a Audacity fade out you are now able to merge songs and create a nice transition. Or even for a very professional looking commentary. We recommend you to use these functions just a little bit more often, so that you get routine. This way you will be able to create a transition in Audacity in a few seconds in the future, so you can still work quickly and cleanly. Have fun with your future projects.
