Create Fades on Clip Edges to avoid clicks

  • Live Versions: All
  • Operating System: All

You may notice pops or clicks with a sample during playback. This can happen if the start or end of the audio waveform is higher than 0dB.

You can activate Create Fades on Clip Edges in the Record/Warp/Launch section of Live's Preferences to prevent any clicks. A short fade (up to 4 ms) will be applied to the Clip start and end.

In Live 10, these fades can also be activated via the Clip Fade button.

  • Clicking on View in the top menu of Live and Automation Mode or
  • Pressing the A button on your computer keyboard. If this doesn't work, make sure that the keyboard icon in the top right corner of Live is deactivated:
