How do I take away the fading option??

I have recently switched to version 5.03, which is really fine but has a feature which drives me mad - it plays playlists automatically fading out and fading in the next track, and I don't want that! I want just an ordinary playback of files, one after the other, until the end. I have spent hours in examinating all the options of the menu but have not found anything to change this. Is there a way to do it, or shall I have to go back to the previous version to be able to play each mp3 until the end? Thx

You can find crossfading options here:
Prefs (Ctrl+P) > Output > double-click DirectSound output > tab Fading

Select each 'event' and uncheck 'Enabled'.

5.03 is quite buggy. If I were you, I'd upgrade to Winamp 5.08d (not 5.09 yet; wait for 5.091).

Hey jmatthews

Good Winamp plugins by Joonas, DrO and shaneh.
If you're bored go here or, if the boredom is more serious, here.

It's likely you have DirectSound's (output plugin) fading in/out enabled.

Go to General Preferences > Plug-ins > Output > DirectSound > Fading > choose "on end of song" and uncheck 'enabled.' Click Apply and OK and play a new song. Your problem should be corrected.

*You may also want to disable "on start," "on first start" as well.*

hope this helps, jmat

[edit] ...too late , and yes I would also advise you to upgrade to at least 5.08d or e ... have fun [/edit]
