[ardour-users] ineffective crossfade

Actually, lets hold off on debugging this issue because i think that
there is a problem with my setup.  I went to add some plugins to the
track that i did the "punch in" on, and i noticed that when i loop
through a range then it pops and bleeps at the end of the range before
it loops back to the beginning.  It didnt do this before, so i went back
to some old sessions and it does the same thing on them.  I know that
it never used to do it on those old sessions, so im assuming that i 
messed something up in my setup recently.  Im going to try and recompile
and reinstall and see if the problem clears up.

Sorry about not doing the "reply all" on my previous message.  I knew about
that, but for some reason i just didnt do it.  

I checked my crossfade and its set to "Short fade at start of overlap" with
a length of 15ms.  I played with it a little more tonight and noticed that
the pop sound only happens when i have the "punch in" button selected.  It
doesnt record the pop, but it plays it at the point of the punch in.  After
i do the punch in, if i deselect the "punch in" button then every thing
plays fine.  If i have the "punch in/punch out" buttons selected then it pops at the
punch in and punch out marker whether im doing any recording or just playback.

Its probably not a major deal except that i record with headphones and 
the pop noise is pretty loud so it usually scares the bejeezers out of me
when it happens.

You should try that. Remember that changing that option will not change
existing , only newly created crossfades will be affected. I tried
duplicating this issue but couldn't, so it could be related to the
signal in your session or options.

PS. When answering posts on a mailing list, you should always use "reply
all" so that the replies get sent to the whole list. I hope you don't
mind, but I sent this reply also to ardour-users.
