Automatic IN/OUT fades between audio tracks

Hello,

I have a PlayList of around 700 songs of all types and genres.

I would like to be able to play this PlayList with automatic fadings between songs.
I do not want to have to set Fade In/Out durations for every song but instead use default values for all songs.

This is a very basic feature most Music Players offer but I do not manage to find it in RadioDJ.
I know this is not perfect but it would be sufficient for my need just to have a default Fade In/Out.

So basically what I am asking is how to batch assign fade IN/OUT durations for all songs.

Does anyone knows how to do that?

Thank you,
Stephane

You don't say which version of Radiodj you are using, but assuming it's the 2.0.0.6 go to Options (bottom right), then ---> Options ---> Autodj, at the bottom you will find "Silence remover". You do not have to do anything, when you load a track or an entire directory the program will use those options and they work like a charm.

Thank you for your kind reply.

Yes I have activated this option that allows to remove silences between songs.

But this is not exactly what I need. Activating this option will only remove silence, but does not allows to have smooth transitions.

I would like the sound of a song progressively decrease at its end and then the sound of the next song progressively increase to make the transition very natural between them.

Actually this is very unpleasant to listen to my playlist because songs are linked without any transition.

Any idea maybe on how to setup simple cross fades beetwen songs ?

Thank you,

Stéphane

Hello,

Thank you Jhonny for your suggestion.
I am sorry but I do not manage to find the Audio Input Settings.

On my side I have tried this request in the MySQL DB:

UPDATE
songs
SET
songs.duration = songs.original_duration - 3, songs.cue_times = CONCAT('&sta=0.0&xta=',
songs. original_duration - 3, '&end=', songs.original_duration, '&fin=3&fou=3')
WHERE
`id_subcat` = 30;


It worked fine, but did not change anything in th behaviour of the software. Still no cross-fades between songs.

What I would like is that 3 seconds before the track finishes, it will start to fade out from 100% to 0% and at the same time to start the next one and fade it from 0% to 100% for 3 seconds.

Thank you,

Stéphane

This is an example of what I have in MySQL:


cue_times
&sta=0.0&xta=202.21005&end=208.21005&fin=6&fou=6
duration
202,21005
original_duration
208,21005


Sounds perfect to me??

Do I need to reset or reload something on the software side?

Do it simple.
First step.
Select a track cue edit the points.  sample
Save as default when fad in and out are what you like.second step.
open track manager.  sample

in top change any category to music.Select all the tracks in the screen.
in the left bottom click on ANALYZER.
(standerd is showing 100 tracks)
so repeat on the next page.

Do this for all sub categoies.

Thank you Jhonny for your help and patience.

That's perfect and completely clear. It worked very well, in a very clean manner  ;)
