How To Fade In and Fade Out a MIDI Track in Pro Tools
With audio clips in Pro Tools, we can use the fade tool to directly fade in/out (Smart tool, upper right corner of clip). However, we can’t do that with our MIDI clips.
To fade in or fade out a MIDI clip/track:
Select the Pencil tool and draw in volume automation on the Instrument track or AUX track.
Choose Audio Volume or Volume for your automation lane (depending on track type).
The Line tool works well to create a smooth linear fade, but the free-hand tool will work as well for other shapes.
