Do you use fades in your work? If you work in radio or TV sound, you'll use them all the time. They had better be neat!
This isn't about fading out the end of a song. It's about making sure that a piece of audio is neat and tidy, as pro work should be.
Let's suppose for instance that you are given a perfect recording of speech to top and tail. (That means cutting out any preamble and postamble, leaving only the wanted material.) The recording is super-clean and super-quiet. So all you have to do is cut it at the beginning, and cut it after the last syllable has ceased to sound. Easy-peasy, no fading required.
But suppose that there is some background noise. Perhaps the piece was recorded in a public place for instance. There are two possibilities...
The first possibility is that the background is low enough in level that the speech completely masks it. Since normal speech is full of gaps, you'll hear the background then, but not when the person is actually producing sound.
Topping is usually easy in any situation - just cut as close as you can to the opening syllable.
At the end however, what you need is a very quick fade that 'chases down' the last syllable as it ends, in terms of the speed of the decay and the shape of the delay curve. Some experimentation might be necessary but the aim is to completely remove any trace of background at the end, without losing one iota of the speech. This would also apply if the recording venue was quiet, but there was some electronically-generated noise for whatever reason.
It might be the case however that the background is audible throughout. Clearly this isn't ideal, but in the professional world you often have to deal with imperfect source material.
In this case a quick fade is not the best solution. The listener will have gotten used to the background throughout the duration of the piece, and fading too quickly will simply draw attention to it.
The solution here is to hold the level for a short period - probably less than a second - after the last syllable, then fade out gracefully taking around another second to do so. Adjust the timings to taste.
Sometimes perfection is unachievable. But professionalism in audio always is. Keep the pleasure of the listener in mind above all else and you won't go wrong.
Thanks Guys and always remember to keep the creativity perfected.

Well-ordered endeavors begin at the beginning… or so the story goes. So that’s where we’ll start this new series.
The first thing that the audio professional must do—long before imagining the purchase or rental of enticing new equipment and visualizing him/herself behind the console mixing an exciting presentation—is to back up and think carefully about how to best serve the client’s needs.
As audio practitioners we are, after all, a service organization. While we rely heavily on making intelligent use of the best selection of equipment that’s available to us, the skills and abilities we bring to the table are what sets one audio practitioner apart from another.
Anyone can buy equipment—given adequate finances—but not everyone can optimally utilize that equipment, work supportively with talent and production staff, and end the day with an exemplary outcome for the audience and the other stakeholders.
Let’s take a pragmatic look at what’s involved in this profession. Almost everything you’ll ever do in sound can be broken into four foundational elements.
Take a moment to ponder on them:
Working backwards, Operational covers items like planning the system in relation to budgetary restrictions, getting the system transported and installed in a timely manner; interfacing with other trades such as broadcast, video, rigging, carpentry, lighting, back line folks; accommodating the needs of the talent; mixing the event; having adequate spare equipment available; and much more as we’ll see as this series progresses.
Acoustical refers to the art and craft of making great sound in the specific environment you’ll be working in. Acoustical considerations encompass the understanding of loudspeaker characteristics, optimal speaker placement, possible acoustical treatment (especially applicable in fixed installations), and all else that goes into making sound the best it can be.
The venue may change from day to day if you’re on tour, or it might remain stable for many years to come if you’re the resident engineer in a concert hall, house of worship, or other fixed installation environment, but there’s always more to learn, adjust, and accomplish to make each show better than the previous one.
Mechanical is all about how you’re going to package the necessary equipment to get to and from the gig, hang the loudspeakers in the air, run the cabling, ensure that safety requirements are met, and still have time to deal with the other elements.
Electrical is where it all comes together from a functional standpoint. The successful sound practitioner must understand how to power the system, what to do to move signals from one point to another without buzz, hum, or other interference, and how to keep the lead singer from frying his or her lips when touching the microphone due to improper grounding. Without an understanding of Electrical, there will be no show, even if the other three elements have been brilliantly managed.
With this in mind we’ll address each topic in this series by looking at the four elements holistically. Sometimes Mechanical, for example, might require only a sentence or two. Other times, it might comprise the crux of the matter.
To be continued......
Until next time… Thanks Guys and always remember to keep the creativity perfected.

It’s the top 10 reasons why music is compressed today.
As you’ll see, there are a lot of things in the list that make sense.
With all the talk about hypercompression (over-compression), we tend to forget that people really do like the sound of compression.
It’s just when it’s used to excess that engineers and listeners alike take offense.
That said, take a look at the top 10 list.
10: Compression is part of the sound of contemporary music. Completely uncompressed music would sound lifeless and boring to most listeners. They crave more energy than unprocessed sound offers.
9: Louder music, even if it’s just slightly louder, almost always sounds better than quieter music.
8: Most music is listened to in the background to accompany some other activity like working, reading exercising, driving, or cooking. When you’re doing something else, uncompressed music’s constantly shifting volume level would be an annoyance.
7: When listening in shuffle mode, there’s a good chance you’ll skip over the quieter songs to get to the next tune. Record producers live in fear of a mix that’s too quiet.
6: In the days before CD mastering, engineers needed to boost the quietest sounds to keep them above the LP’s noise floor, and reduce the loudest sounds volume level to keep the “needle” in the groove. Digital didn’t have those problems, but we still wound up with CDs that have less soft-to-loud dynamic range than LPs.
5: Engineers like using different types of compression to create new sounds to catch the ear. There’s nothing wrong with that.
4: People so rarely listen to music in quiet surroundings, they need compression to keep music loud enough to be heard over the noise.
3: If people really didn’t like compression, they would stop buying/listening to compressed music (see No. 1).
2: People mistake compression for dynamics; when all the sounds are loud and “punchy,” it’s called “dynamic.” Naturally dynamic music lacks the kick of a compressed mix.
1: Audiophiles like to complain about compressed music, but they actually prefer it.
