I am currently trying out some sound-fonts I just downloaded, in Linux Multimedia Studio (LMMS). All is going well, besides the fact that I haven't, even after a Google search, found out how to make a soundfont's note fade out or in. At the suggestion of one YouTube video, I tried using the Automation editor, yet, though it affected the default preset and other such types of instruments, it had no effect whatsoever on the soundfont (.sf2) files I am using.
I am still inclined to think that the automation editor is what will accomplish this in the end, yet I need some guidance. Any suggestions? Thank you!
