GarageBand '11: Add a fade-out or fade-in

Add a fade-out or fade-in

You can easily add an automatic fade-out to the end of a project, so that the sound gradually fades to silence.

When you add a fade-out, four control points are added to the master track for the project. The first control point is added 10 seconds before the end of the last region in the project, the second at 7 seconds, the third at 4 seconds, and the fourth at the end of the last region.

To add an automatic fade-out:

Choose Track > Fade Out.

To adjust the length of the fade-out:

  1. Choose Track > Show Master Track.

  2. Choose Master Volume from the menu in the master track header.

    Master track
  3. Move the control points at the end of the master volume automation curve to adjust the length of the fade-out.

To manually add a fade-in or fade-out:

  1. Click the disclosure triangle in the track’s header, or, for the master track, choose Track > Show Master Track.

  2. Choose Master Volume from the menu in the master track header.

  3. Add control points to the beginning of the volume curve for a fade-in, or to the end of the curve for a fade-out.

  4. Move the control points to adjust the length and depth (intensity) of the fade-in or fade-out.
