When listening to music in MediaMonkey, you can turn on crossfading to blend between tracks, and when you don’t want it you can turn it off. But why do you have to do anything?
Even if you want crossfading on usually, there are some pretty common instances when you won’t like it. Forget Crossfade Handles all this for you.
When you’re listening to an album straight through, the tracks have usually been produced to lead into each other in a certain way. Crossfading them can ruin that. Forget Crossfade automatically checks if the next song in the queue should be crossfaded into so you can just relax and listen to your music.
Forget Crossfade makes things just that little bit easier – especially for anyone who listens to mix cd’s.
Forget about changing the crossfade settings, they will take care of themselves from now on!
To activate or deactivate Forget Crossfade, click “Auto Crossfade” in the Play Menu.
Apart from turning crossfade on and off, any crossfading settings you have applied will be preserved. This means how long you want the crossfade to last will always be the same.
Tracks From the Same Album
Forget Crossfade will mean you no longer need to turn on and off the crossfade settings when you play different songs in succession. 15 seconds before any track you are playing finishes, Forget Crossfade will check what track is coming up next. If the track is the next song on the same album, it will turn crossfading off automatically. If the track is not the next track on the album (or shuffle is turned on) then crossfading will be turned on.
Tracks that just Shouldn’t be Crossfaded
Some tracks, regardless of what comes after them, shouldn’t be crossfaded at the end. This can be true of the start of a track as well – where you don’t want it crossfaded into regardless of what’s playing before. Instances of this might include tracks which start or end abruptly, or tracks that have an important silence at the start or end.
For these tracks, Forget Crossfade can’t automatically tell what you want, but if you hear one of those tracks, hit the Forget Crossfade button in the toolbar (or ctrl-f) to mark the track as an exception. A notification will then display noting whether it was set to not crossfade the start, end, or both. If it’s not the one you’d like, simply click the button again.
