Controls and options:

 

Fade in

Time interval in the beginning of a track for the volume to go up. When a track is started, the volume will go linearly from 0 to 100% during that time.

Mix point

The moment before the end of a track when the next track starts playing, overlapping with the current track.

Trigger mix at

The “Trigger mix at" setting is based on a sound level (default setting is –14dB). The “Mix point” option must be turned on too.

 

If the “Trigger mix at” option is turned on, the “Mix point” value (2.5 seconds by default) controls the minimum overlap duration.  

Fade out

Time interval in the end of a track for the volume to go down.

Start fading out on mix

The fade out will be started together with Mix. If the “Fade out” option is turned on, the corresponding value defines the fade out duration.

File type selector

Selects the file type for editing the crossfade settings.

Override previous track mix

Overrides the previous track's mix point to control how many tracks overlap. This is useful for commercials and jingles in order to avoid long overlap with the preceding music track.

File types...

Opens the File Types dialog to configure file types.
