If there's already a mechanism to lessen the impact of slices,
disabling it does not seem to be a good thing.  I tried to add some
fades at the highest zoom level but the slice can still be heard.

The bottom line would be, never slice in the middle of an
instrument (violin) playing solo because that will leave a mark.

In this case it was to copy a part of the region to another audio
track, eg. to mult.  What I will do is to re-import the original track.

Next time I'll import the same track twice and slice from one of the two
then discard it afterwards.  Importing a track for slicing purposes
only, to mult.

I did slices before although in the context of a full band and as such
no clicks were ever heard from the slice marks that remained.

Thanks to all for the details on this.

By the way, is it possible to copy the level editing done in a region
to another track ?
