While making professional videos, it is essential to manage the audio with the visuals for a seamless production. Hence, you need audio control tools to control the audio and adjust it according to the scene requirements. Audio fading is one such method of slowly transitioning the volume down and muting the sound.

Adobe Premiere is the best video editing software used by professionals. It provides various audio adjustment features so that you can enhance your production quality.

This article discusses the three top audio fading features and learns how to fade out audio in Premiere.

Constant power is the default fade effect in Premiere and gives a smooth transition between two audios. The audio intensity increases at the start and slows down towards the end, giving a perfect soft audio fade.

To use constant power crossfade, follow the steps below:

Step 1: Go to Effects> Audio Transitions > CrossFade > Constant Power.

Step 2: Drag and drop the effect onto the Edit between the clips. You can put it to the left, right, or middle for an equal balance between the fading sound.

Exponential Fade Crossfade

The exponential fade sets the audio at an exponential curve, meaning that the audio becomes slow at the start and increases faster and faster, reaching the end. The hit makes an intense scene and can be used for horror sounds or beat drops. Thus, the Exponential fade makes the best Adobe Premiere fade-out audio.

You can add an exponential fade using the following steps:

Step 1: Go to Effects>Audio Transitions>Crossfade>Exponential Fade.
