How to Fade in/out Music?

Whether it’s for creating ringtones or some background music for your latest PowerPoint presentation, the start or end of these audio files are often found too harsh. What you’re looking for is a fade-in or a fade-out with Free Audio Editor.

A fade-out creates a similar effect, just at the end, slowly decreasing the volume. This post will be focusing on how to fade in & fade out music.
