ripple deleting should produce an automatic crossfade

Recommended Posts

I've more or less described the need here:

Deleting a section of audio with ripple edit on should result in crossfades at the new junctions (when auto-crossfade is turned on). Thanks!

Ripple editing is a common tool found in both audio and video editing software. In all of those I’m familiar with the cross fade needs to already be there. It’s purpose is to keep everything together when you remove or add a section to a multi track timeline. And it doesn’t always work perfectly no matter the software.

To add a cross fade automatically is beyond the scope of the purpose of the feature.

Thanks John, actually ripple editing is still relatively new to Cakewalk, but Samplitude/Sequoia ripple-editing is one of the best and most mature implementations, is widely used for classical editing, and provides the automatic crossfade upon a ripple-delete, as I discuss in the linked post.

Given that ripple editing can be a bit complicated, and that the auto-crossfade button is right next to the ripple edit button, it shouldn't be an unreasonable expectation that the editor will enable or disable automatic crossfades as necessary. So, implementing auto crossfades to ripple deletes does not remove any existing capability, while vastly improving the workflow for what is a common use scenario for ripple editing.
