SALE TODAY: Learn Piano on iOS http://bit.ly/PianoAppSale When you cut up tracks and piece together regions, you'll want to make sure the new transitions are smooth and seamless. Sometimes you can hear a small pop between two separate regions, but adding a crossfade can eliminate this issue.  Start off by selecting the smart tool so you can edit your track. With the smart tool, use the grabber to place two regions right next to each other.  Hover the cursor over the bottom section between the regions, where the line divides them. The cursor will become a faded "X" icon, which is the crossfade tool.  Click and drag the cursor to the right or left. If you move it farther into the region the fade will be gradual, whereas a steeper angle will make it more abrupt.  Adjust the crossfade to the way you want your transition.  The default fade is a straight, gradual fade out and fade in. You can edit this to make the fade even smoother.  Double click on the fade region. This will bring up the Fades editing window. Select the Equal Power option and click OK.  This makes the fade lines arched and curved. The effect will create a seamless transition between the separate regions.
