See also Crossfade A split-dipless crossfader is a device first introduced in analog control consoles using pulse-width modulation and an integrator, and then implemented as a software algorithm in microprocessor desks. The distinguishing feature is that the incoming cue and the outgoing cue are assigned to the two handles of the crossfader. Then: As long as a channel level is the same in both the incoming and outgoing cues, the handles can be split to lead the incoming cue by any amount and the channel level will not change as long as the incoming crossfader is equal to or greater than the level of the outgoing crossfader. Also allows for, in a timed fader pair, separate UP and DN fadetimes. See also split fade, lead/lag fade.
