"Create Fades on Clip Edges" to avoid clicks
- Live Versions: 8 - 10
- Operating System: All
If a sample beginning or end doesn't correspond to a zero crossing, this can cause pops or click sounds when the audio file is played or looped. The zero-crossing is a horizontal line in a waveform where the waveform has an amplitude of 0 dB.
To avoid these clicks, activate Create Fades on Clip Edges in the Record/Warp/Launch pane of Live's Preferences. A short (up to 4 ms) fade will be applied to the clip start and end.
These fades can also be activated via the Clip Fade button, in the clip view.
These de-clicking Fades are not to be confused with adjustable Fades.
