Lots of folks like to use a Group cue full of Audio cues set to auto-follow for preshow music, and then use a single Fade cue targeting the Group to fade out and stop the preshow music when necessary. This works perfectly well. Another common need with preshow, however, is not quite so simple, and that’s the case of lowering the level of preshow for an announcement, and then fading it back up. Everything is great until that one night when you fade down during one song, and then the song ends and the next song begins before the fade back up. When this happens, the following song starts off playing at its original volume, which is louder, non announcement level. What to do?
The secret lies in this fact: Fade cues can only fade levels on a target cue which is either running, paused, or loaded. So…
Still have a question?
