Well .. you'll find attached my crossfade settings

They give very good results by using both the S-curve and Line fading

 

SAM don't fade files lesser than 7 sec ... works out very nice to short IDs or promos

 

However you can always add to some specific tracks / songs a seperated crossfade ... because there are songs who start with an intro who has a very low volume .. at that moment you can choose into the settings of that particular song for "no crossfade" (aka disabled) .. because it can happen if the intro volume is to low that SAM gonna skip that track

 

Hope this was usefull

Visit and listen @ BW !

Well I like how Arthur has his...but mine are a slight bit different, instead of dropping the sound level 83% I only drop my 30 - 35%. So the music is still heard solid in the background by my voice is in the foreground through nice mic levels. Pretty much what most FM rock stations like to do...

 

I guess its all a matter of preference! This is mine! But the fade out/in times are almost identical! lol

In my opinion, there is no such thing. All depends on your genre and your style. Everyone will have a different opinion about what is better.

 

Just as an example, a station that played Smooth Jazz wants songs to fade out slowly and have very brief silence in between songs; whereas, a station that played some sort of upbeat format like Hip-Hop or Rap, wants all the songs to be pushed together as close as possible and for you to not even hear the song fade out. Then a Top40 station or classic rock station would be in the middle of the two.

I agree also, a lot will depend on how the mp3's (or other formats) are edited. Mine are topped and tailed with no gap at the beginning and a short fade to end with no gap at end. Other people may edit differently and some do not bother at all. My songs don't overlap as such but fade until you can just hear it and then the next one starts. That's my format and style, each to their own really but thanks to Philippe and Arthur sharing their settings, it gave me ideas how to set mine.

The crossfades I set up were tested with a test bed of edited down songs and carefully chosen songs at that, all were totally different, and some had very awkward begiinings/ endings. They wre all interspersed with id's stingers ads etc and played out and the crossfades set up to never fail on me. I am glad to say, it all worked out perfectly in actual use. Over-lapping can cause terribl;e problems with certain material. My settings will never suffer in that way. HTH

If I have helped you with a Freebie- please be kind enough to add a link from your own site or blog to mine- thanks! http://arthurburton.net
