Okay, I've heard several mp3 renders of looping tracks that have a nice fade out at the end, even though that isn't in the actual file. It sounds way nicer than just abruptly cutting off the track! However, I've also seen folks mention that you shouldn't upload an mp3 render that changes the original in any way, including a fade out.
So . . .
What's best practice for this and can we get it posted in the lyceum or somewhere? If I can fade out my loops I'd like to, but I haven't been because I didn't think I was allowed to!
