Inserting fades

Sometimes the default fade that's added to the beginning or end of the track just doesn't sound natural. Either the fade is too tight and cuts off the attack or release of the part, or the fade itself just isn't smooth sounding enough. Now is the time to fix any fades that don't work in the track by adjusting the fade timings. The first thing we'll do in this case is have a listen.
