by default, ardour adds declicking fade in/fade out curves at the beginning
and end of every region, to prevents clicks at region boundaries.

There is, however, no perfect fade in/fade out curve that can prevent all
clicks, AND these curves necessarily change the gain structure of the ends
of the regions.

You can disable individual region fades by right clicking on a given fade
in/out handle or curve, or disable all of them in one step with Session >
