Greetings mate and Welcome aboard!

Stuart Charles here, HomeStudioBasics.com helping YOU make sound decisions, so…

Today we’ll quickly go over a couple of ways to fade audio in FL Studio. The first way will cover fading an audio clip, and the second will be fading an entire song/beat.

For this tutorial, we’ll be using FL Studio 21.

Fading is something I probably use way too often, but I love it so.

The anticipation of a neat beat fading in gets me rather damp, and I want to help others experience how incredible it feels.

Jokes aside, fading is awesome, so let’s dive in.

Method 1: Audio Clips

FL makes it super easy and convenient to fade audio clips.

Head up to the top left and you’ll see 3 icons: one is your Pattern Picker (Piano), 2 is the Audio clips (Wav Form), and 3 is Automation (2 points and a line).

Click on the Audio clips (middle) and then have a look to the right. There are some more small icons. One of them is the “Show fade editing controls” button. Click it.

Now hover over the clip you recorded.

You’ll see a small semi-circle at the bottom which is your gain adjustment, and to the right at the end of the clip is the fade control.

Simply grab it and move it where you want! You can also do this at the beginning of the clip for a hot, juicy fade-in. 

Edison

This is the method I use for beats that use patterns.

I typically export the beat as a WAV file, then start a blank project and open Edison. Then I load the sample (the beat) into Edison and fade it that way.
