I would love to have an adjustable crossfade function for two overlapping clips on the same track. Is this planned?

Personally i think this feature is an overkill. You can duplicate the track and crossfade with automation as you wish.

I think elemental means something like the same as within a DAW like cubase. Btw, not exactly what you ask for, but this is stated in the manual: "When an audio event is split, either by this function or the Knife tool, fade in and outs will be added to split points if the option Options › Add Anti-Click Fades on Audio Event Split is enabled."

@stylemistake yes I know, I used to do it a lot in Ableton before they implemented the crossfade feature. Personally I find it very useful and use it often, saves having to create duplicate tracks and keeps things neat.

i found out that even with the option i can hear a click sound. so manual fade in/out tool is vital

This is an invaluable feature, I would also very much like to see this option in a future release

Crossfades are essential for both practical purposes of eliminating pops, clicks etc, but also for creative blending purposes. The ideal crossfade tool would allow crossfades from just a few samples long - all the way to long crossfades up to the duration of the audio clips. Curves also important for a good crossfade! Thanks :)

Crossfades within one track are on the wish list, but not part of version 1.0!

yes i also wish for crossfade + comprecord! But to workaround crossfade you can use editor and gain like in picture for the time beeing. alt text

+1! I have to edit all my sounds in Ardour, export them, import them in Bitwig... It would be an almost complete workstation with this feature, really miss it!

Agreed, clip fades are essential for fixing up pops quickly on the timeline like many others have said. Working with the Gain is slow by comparison. This is a very common task, and workflow efficiency is paramount.
