View Full Version : Poll: Volume Fade Out on Pause/Skip?

When you pause a song or skip to the next song, the volume is cut off very abruptly. A quick, smooth fade out of the volume would sound much better.

I like the idea of a fade out on skip\pause\stop mid-song. It has to be a quick though. <1 sec?

But it shouldn't affect the next song if it is a skip.

Agreed -- OK to fade out the song you're leaving, but let the next one start at full volume (most pop songs have natural fade up already). I'm torn about how to vote, mainly because I expect this would be implemented not as an option but a "new, improved" behavior, just like the current fade out when turning a Squeezebox off.

Just noticed this article from a very respected audiophile magazine:

"It might be nice if in the next software release that the software guru's wrote a nice fade out, fade in algorithm for the pause function."

This article was from 2005, and nothing has been done about it. It's little things like this that keep the SB3/SBT from being a serious audiophile device.
