Fade Out when Exporting as .WAV

Not sure if it has been suggested, or if it's possible...

Could a .WAV export have a built in fade out i.e. 10, 7, 5 seconds as defined by the user? This would only be when choosing the option to export it to a specific time, NOT when looping it a set number of times.

Get a audio editor like wavepad or audacity and edit it like you wish to have it.

Oh yeah, I have Logic but I was just suggesting if it was possible to do as an add on. I suppose I could have it run through twice and then skip to a fade out frame. Is there a way to tell FT to loop twice and THEN go to another frame that would fade i.e. a coda of sorts?

Unfortunately not. There were some suggestions on implementing this as effects, but somehow this didn't get far.

That's a bummer. I've wanted an "Export x number of frames" function since forever.

As a clickable export option? Totally, if FT could do that it as part of the export process it would save the extra step of needing to boot up Audacity (et al.) to do it for you.

I see some implementation dilemmas here. Would it only fade out in 16-step volume increments? Would the triangle channel not fade out at all? Or would it forego accurate emulation and linearly fade everything?

I think it would have to forego accurate emulation in this case. Essentially, what we're doing if we use a DAW to fade it anyway.

Then just use a DAW to fade it anyway. What is the point?

Personally I do not think FamiTracker should not give undue weight to functions that can be done independently of the tracker; however, the 0.5.0 betas have a disabled checkbox on the WAV export dialog saying "Normalize audio", which obviously necessitates a second pass of all samples after the rendering pass, so implementing that would give a valid reason to do a fade-out option as well.
