Audacity Music Mix Software

Member_2_7966113 used Ask the Experts™
Hello Experts,

It was recommended that I use Audacity for mixing music - and I totally agree.

I need to be able mix in the next track, so it fade in, instead of starting abruptly from the beginning.

I was given the following link to show me how to do it.

However, this link shows me how to combine my tracks - which is what I like, but what I also need is the ability to fade in each track as I've just described.

Can someone let me know if that's possible with Audacity?

Update your question with the number of audios will you be processing + is this a one off or task you'll be repeating.

Audacity is great if you only have one audio to do.

If you have 100s or this task must be repeated over a long time, then best to use a script calling ffmpeg or sox to do the  work.

If you search for audacity fade you'll find examples of doing this via Audacity.
