All my audio files are normalised at -0.10db (98.86% of peak volume), have a 200ms silent intro, and finish off roughly with about 2 seconds of silence. In keeping consistant, I treated my station IDs the same with with the same volume, intro silence and outro silence. I don't know what else I can do?
By checking the SAM Broadcaster help section for Cross fades, it simply notes the three different fade styles, and how each one works. The last point on the help page talks about the "Do not crossfade or fade 45 seconds or less in duration: function, and why it wouldn't sound good having a 3 second fade on a 4second promo., which I've checked.
For smoother mixes I have switched off the "fade in" function, but have left the "Fade out function on" with a S Curve. The next track triggers, when the end of the previous track gets below a certain volume level.
Also for getting rid of click sounds during mixes, I have removed the gap killer for the start of the track, but have left the tick on "remove silence from end of track".
So when you note that I may have to treat my promo's individually, could you please elaborate? Do you mean longer silent gaps, or soften peak volume in normalisation stage? Thanx
