been using APro since years and I just found out that Crossfade Loop function doesn't work as expected anymore.
In the past I simply picked 0,1 secs --> enter -- > done
what's the procedure now?
the manual says
The Loop Crossfade function is similar to what was just described, except that it creates a transition between the end and the start of the selection. This allows the resulting sound to be looped seamlessly.
but if apply it and save it won't do the trick
also the visuals changed as now I see the file highlighted and you can drag the selection (been doing that for years and I don't recall this)
I don't think that this function has changed in a pretty long time. Selection the portion you want to loop and then entering the length of the crossfade seems to work as expected for me in version 2.8.4.
tho something has changed for sure cos what I've been doing for the past 8 years doesn't seem to work?
specifically: I'm basically creating a seamless loop of an ambience clip .. this is what I've been doing so far
- import file
- select --> Fading --> Crossfading Loop --> set to 0,1 secs
always worked and never bumped into persitstent clicks like now
I include a video of what happens
as you'll hear there's still a click after I do the moves above (no matter if I do 0,1 or 0,2 or 0,3 etc.. )
also what's different is that it doesn't "look" the same:
after you eat apply you would see the end of the track getting slightly shorter. the file doesn't get highlighted in dark green,
after you eat apply the fade the file gets highlighted in dark green and the selection gets shorter, not the file itself.
that has changed for sure as I've been performing this action countless times in the past.
the only difference is that I recently updated to Catalina.
wondering if maybe is just a setting?
