Punch and roll - no automatic cross fade?

I'm recording an audio book and the punch and roll feature in multitrack mode does not seem to allow an option for an automatic crossfade between takes.

 

So if there's any small background noise at all (ex: A/C) the jump from one take to the next is too obvious. 

 

Does punch and roll have a setting where you can automatically set a default cross fade for every take?

 

If not, is there any way to crossfade all takes on the same track? I know how to crossfade on different tracks, but selecting all takes on the same track does not seem to allow me to create a uniform crossfade. 

 

Any help greatly appreciated!

Punch and Roll is a bit awkward from that point of view. The way that crossfades work is that they are only available between separate clips, and what P&R does is place another clip (or clips) on top of an existing clip - which doesn't have a break in it - so no crossfade available at that point. I did wonder whether the 'smooth all edit boundaries' setting in Prefs>Data would influence this, but I can't get it to here - because once again, it doesn't think that there's an edit.

 

The only way I know of to give your punched audio crossfade handles is to bring the original track to the foreground, and put a split in it in the middle of where your punch-in is. Then, when you bring the punched audio to the foreground, you'll get crossfade options. Yeah, that's a bit of a kludge, but that's all there is on offer at present, I'm afraid, and I'm sure you can see why with the present crossfade rules.

 

I think that there is something to be said for there being an option to place a split underneath any punch-in. Then at least you could make adjustments without having to make the split manually. That would at least be something...

Did you ever figure out something that worked for you?  I've just started using adobe audition & had the same question.
