A technique commonly used in editing audio. One sound is faded out as another fades in, allowing for a smooth transition between the two. Crossfading is also common in samplers, where it is used to smooth loop transitions (crossfade looping), and sound design to create hybrid sounds (one sound morphing or turning into another). While we often think of this as a digital process, audio engineers have been using two channel faders on a mixing console to crossfade between two signals or tracks for many years.
