Yes it’s possible:
Undo the twirly of the audiotrack you’re using, next, check if there’s a waveform displayed, if not, press the litte button at the upper left.
you see a red line running through the waveform, if you click on it, you see red buttons. These buttons are ‘corners’ where you can change the audiotrack’s volume. So for a fade-out: just click on the red line where you want the track to begin fading-out, and then go to the end and drag the line to the bottom…April 20, 2003 at 8:50 pm #1215
I hope you have some ideas where the buttons are.
Drag the slider on the timeline to the place you want to cut. Select the razor tool (if it’s not showing, hold down the button until a small menu shows it). Trim your clip at the line (delete the excess if you want).
Now, as for audio-look all the way to the left of your audio timeline. There is an arrow pointing to the right hand side of the screen. Punch it with your mouse pointer, and your audio timeline doubles in size. You’re now looking at the source material (if zoomed in you’ll be able to see the actual sound. If you’re zoomed out a lot, it might look like there’s nothing there).
You want your audio to fade:
You see that red line in the middle of your audio timeline?
Put a marker where you want the audio to start fading. (Placing a marker is as simple as clicking the line where you want it to start. You’ll see a red square after you click.)
Drag the last red square marker down to the bottom of your audio track. As you can see, the end of the track makes a triangle —— (something like that. The audio is now faded out.)

See, that’s why you shouldn’t edit audio in Premiere. All that just for a fade effect. Sad sad.
actually premiere is superb when it comes to making this kind of thing quick and easy… it just seems like a long process because Jared wanted to “dumb it down” (if you’ll excuse the expression) and mae his instructions as simple as possible to follow.
once one is familiar with the mechanics (and it’s easy to do so) it is lightning fast… AND it is non-destructive… you can easily alter where your cuts/edits/fade in/fade/out/silences/swells etc etc are at any time, in seconds becasue premiere leaves the original file alone, untouched… if you were to say use goldwave to create a fadeout, and you suddenly change your mind where it should be, or how long it should be you would have to restart goldwave, reload your original file (you didn’t save over it did you?) and recreate the whole process again…. with premiere, you just have to move one little red square with your mouse.
even if the audio timeline waveform is closed, it just takes three mouse clicks to open, edit, and close it again… in goldwave it would take three minutes.
