Hi!

My problem:

I’m trying to create a piece similar to the “Oriental Situation” example project. I have 3 Phases of music and 3 levels of intensity. The running order is Phase 1 (Loop) > Transition 1 (Once) > Phase 2 (Loop) > Transition 2 (Once) > Phase 3/End.

The trouble I’m having is getting the transitions to play OVER THE TOP of the previous phase music. For example: I want Phase 1 to trigger Transition 1, but I don’t want the music to cut out, then the transition to play, then Phase 2 to start. I want it to run smoother so that they overlap.

Does this make sense? I’m quite new to FMOD and this has really baffled me :S

Hi Declan,

If I’m understanding your issue correctly, you are trying to smoothly transition from a transition region to a destination marker by crossfading the source and destination instruments.

It currently isn’t possible (versions 1.10.07 and earlier) to crossfade the source and destination instruments on the same track. Instead, you can add a separate instrument into a different track in the transition timeline that can act as a blending/transition sound between regions. You can see examples of this in the “oriental situation” event by double clicking on a transition region that has a “°” on the right hand side.

You could also try to use volume automation within the transition timeline to create a custom cross fade between regions, again ensuring the source/destination instruments are on different tracks.

Thanks,
Richard

    Hi Declan,

    You can also make use of AHDSR modulation to fade in/out if you’re using asynchronous instruments.

    Thanks,
    Richard
