Here's some info about fade-in/outs and the new ewf-format:

Yes, the ewf file format is meant just for this. In ecasound 1.6.x
(and older), ewf is not very usable (only wav files and simple sample
offsets), but 1.7.x will offer a more flexible ewf-format. Here's
a sample ewf-file (1.7.x):

--cut track02.ewf --
source = track02.wav
offset = 1.5
length = 200
looping = true
start_position = 0
loop_start_position = 0

I still might change the format somewhat, but it's already close to
what I want.

Fade-ins are best done with -kl and -kl2 (in 1.7.x). For 5 sec fade-in:

ecasound -i file.wav -o file.wav -ea:100 -kl:1,0,100,5 -t:5

And for 5 sec fade-out (the first 60 secs are skipped):

ecasound -i file.wav -y:60 -o file.wav -y:60 -ea:100 -kl:1,100,0,5 -t:5

In 1.7.x you can also do:

ecasound -i file.wav -o another.wav -ea:100 -kl2:1,100,0,60,5
