How to Burn a CD With CrossFade

All recent versions of the Windows operating system include Windows Media Player as a built-in utility. Among many other features, Windows Media Player can burn a new CD with the tracks of your choice. By default there are a few seconds' silence between the end of each track and the beginning of the next. You can, however, take advantage of a built-in feature of Windows Media Player called "crossfading." With that feature, a song fades gradually at its end while the following song gradually increases in volume; the result is a smoother transition, as needed by DJs and other users who put together and play their own playlists.
