  4. Fade tab
    .. -- Highlight 'on start' > check-mark 'Enable' and 'Use custom fade time' > set fade time of 4000 ms
    .. -- Highlight 'on end of song' > check-mark 'Enable' and 'Use custom fade time' > set fade time of 3000 ms
  5. Apply button > OK button > if asked to automatically increase buffer length, click Yes
  6. close out of Prefs
How would I "tighten up" the crossfade, more like a quick-cut than a blend (DJ terms that I hope are self-explanatory)? I've played around with the fade times etc., currently:

The tighter fade times have fixed the problem I was having with some short announcement files being faded prematurely, but now I get occasional stretches of dead air, 8 seconds sometimes! Is the "gapless" referred to in the top image an option somewhere I haven't found? Thanks.
