Hi, and thank you very much for all your help!

That's exactly what I'd like to do.

I have to learn also about the effects. How can I adjust the volume
for a region to the highest possible below the clipping limit for that
region? For some tracks, It's also nice to fade in and out for half a
second or so, to avoid noise. Is there simple commands to do this?

Thanks and regards,
