Right now, we have a Fade-out feature in BIAB.
In the same manner, it would be nice to get a Fade-In feature.

It would be very useful, for example for Newage songs, ballads, instrumentals for movies, Praise&Worship songs, Gospels,...
I would also add a pro touch in some arrangements.

Note also that all modern hardware arrangers offer the complete set of Fade-in and Fade-out features.

DAWs typically offer fade-in and fade-out functions on a track by track basis. Also, many daws offer multiple fade choices using linear or logarithmic change in volume. Some daws also allow the user to apply a fade across one track, multiple tracks or all tracks.

How would you want fade-in to work inside BiaB?

Just import the files to your daw and add a fade in.

The fade-out feature should work the same manner the present fade-in works : the user should define a number of bars upon which the fade-out would be applied.

Note also users don't always use a DAW : for example when we use BIAB in live for gig sessions, we cannot import to a DAW, so we need the fade-in feature inside BIAB.

I personally don't need thus but +1 for those users who use BiaB on gigs.

yes, it's not an unreasonable request esp. if it allows the product to be better used in a live situation.

I run BIAB under Windows OS, so I can't answer to you.
Maybe Mac users can answer.
Have you searched in the BIAB manual for this entry ?

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box®!

Here's some of the amazing feedback we've received lately, from program users just like you!

Arthritic fingers means I find it very difficult to play anything. This program is amazing - and it does use real musicians!
-Bob E.

The power of this program is just unbelievable! It's been a best kept secret for a couple of decades now. A song writer's dream!
-Mike D

This band can practice any time of day ...LOL
-William G

Band-in-a-Box works so simple you could teach a child to do it within minutes - the RealTracks are amazing. Doing an album as we speak. I challenge you to give it a try. I am 60 years old and even though I've played 50 years, I am no engineer. But as a song writer I needed some effective tools to create quality production of my work. This is IT! It's as easy as typing and filling in the blanks. The instructional videos allow you to change settings while watching the pro. I myself purchased every "RealTrack" I could get... Take it from me, don't let this overwhelm you. It is absolutely a writer and solo artist dream!
-John S

Best part of Band-in-a-Box is that it saves me having to program drums, the Real Drummer part of the software is brilliant and natural sounding. I then layer real instruments with guys from my band. As a songwriter, Band-in-a-Box has saved me so much time it's ridiculous.
-Andy B

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "Band-in-a-Box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy. ;)
-Ilija B.

Been a BIAB man since '92, such a comprehensive source for music making! So much more to offer than "loops", it allows actual music composition to be realized. Evolve from harmonic ignorance and find out what REAL music is made of!
-Don D.

A must for any musician who wants to improve on his own, or to share his musical ideas in a professional high quality rendition.. You just play with the best musicians and that's great ♪ :)
-Jean-Marie D.

I use Band in a Box all the time. I couldn't be more pleased. It's easy to use and it sounds super-big time!
-Max R.

An excellent tool for generating backing tracks. Saves me hours of MIDI programming. Combines the best of MIDI and live audio samples.
-Steve A.
