Default Adjust crossfade time for overlapping or touching items?

Is this option still available? The only SWS action that does this moves the later items, which I don't want. Can crossfades be created without moving any items?

What options do I currently have for crossfading touching items via a key press?

I want to automatically cross fade touching clips without moving anything.

How about selecting the Left Hand Item and using the Action "Item Edit: Grow right edge of items"

With AutoCrossfade enabled, I'd guess that will create the crossfade you want (can't try it out right now).

(Or you could select the Right Hand item and grow its left edge)

Does this help?

Thanks for the suggestion, Andy! I haven't tried this yet, does it grow the overlapping sides only? I'll try when I get home.

Dunno if this is exactly what you want but i give it a try:

Create this Custom Action and assign it to a keycommand:

- Item: Select item under mouse cursor
- Item: Set item mix behavior to always mix
- Item: Crossfade any overlapping items


So let's say you have 2 items overlapping eachother.
Point your mouse on 1 of them, doesn't matter which one.
(selecting an item by leftclicking is not necessary, just point!)

Execute the Custom Action.

Outcome: a crossfade will be made between the 2 items.

Beware: This only works for just 2 overlapping Items.
If you have let's say 3 or more overlapping Items, it will not work
If there was an Action : select item including all overlapping&underlying items
then you could apply xfade between them more easily.
Maybe this action is scriptable ..

Warm Regards.

Thanks for the detailed response! Yes, unfortunately I usually crossfade lots of little edits together to get rid of any zero-crossing clicks. Here's how studio one handles it:

Clip A: More audio after end of item
Clip B: More audio before start of item


Clip A: More audio after end of item
Clip B: No audio before start of item


Clip A: No audio after end of item
Clip B: More audio before start of item


Clip A: No audio after end of item
Clip B: No audio before start of item

Do you mean SWS: Crossfade adjacent selected items (move later items) ?

This action is actually misnamed currently, it doesn't move items but item edges.

https://github.com/reaper-oss/sws/issues/902

Other than this, maybe
SWS/AW: Fill gaps between selected items (quick, crossfade using default fade length)

This is a feature I have requested as well. I haven't seen how Studio One does this, but I love how Samplitude handles it. You set up an auto Xfade length (default 10 ms) and when you drag one object over another, instead of crossfading the entire overlapping area, the Xfade remains at 10ms unless you adjust it. For example, drag an item over an item by 30 ms, the Xfade area remains 10 ms.

This is an incredible convenience when editing, particularly when fixing timing on guitars, bass lines, etc. It saves a great deal of time. I hope the developers are listening because this is one of the few things Samplitude does much better than Reaper, but it's a big one.
