Hey guys,

I’m kind of an Ableton newb as I’ve only been using it for about 3 weeks. Anyways, I’ve been working on a few tracks, and I notice that when I am trying to automate a fade in on a track I get a loud burst of noise at the beginning before it quiets down for the fade in. I have automated the mixer volumes correctly. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this? I’m sure it’s something really easy, but as I said I’m a newb haha.

Any help is appreciated! Thanks

you have a screenshot?

I had this on sony acid, try to automate it a few beats sooner!

haha you know what, i’ve had this a few times, not actually sure why this happens.

Try using the Utility plug in for doing your volume fades rather than your mixer, that way when it comes to your mix down later, it will make life MUCH easier.

(because any modulation you make to volume within your arrangement window overrides your volume mixer… it’s a right pain.)

look up zero crossings,

 if your off your crossing then you will get clicks and pops !:slight_smile:

Thanks for all of your help! The utility plug in is much easier.
