The easy way to make a professional sounding fade-out of a song.
This will work well with most types of music.
See here for installation instructions: http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/plugins
After installing and restarting Audacity the plug-in will appear in the Effect menu as: “Pro Fade Out”
Trim the song down so that it ends at the point where you want the fade out to finish.
Select about 10 seconds at the end of the trimmed song.
Apply this “Pro Fade Out” effect in the same way as you would apply the normal Fade Out effect.
This effect has no user settings, just apply it to the audio that you wish to fade out.
