    You mean Fading, not phrasing.

    And i'm not of FL but I guess you just need to automate the volume slider at the points you want it go up.

    ^^this

    easy way to do it is to bounce however many bars you want to fade in over to a wav file, then load that up as a sample, right click the volume knob and then 'create automation clip' you can click in the bit of the screen above the split it will chuck you a volume envelope. you can then adjust your volume to fade in as you wish. (you can also do it by routing the wav to a mixer channel and automating that volume control in the same way)

    there's more than likely a much easier way to do this but i normally seem to find the long way round!

    also, it is usually more interesting to do this by automating a high or low pass filter, rather than just fading in the volume.

    Why would you need to bounce it out to a wav first? You can automate the volume or any other dial straight off the bat.

    definitly the easiest way to do it

    personally I prefer not to touch the channel faders except for the final stage of mixdown, just makes life simpler knowing I dont have to worry about screwing up automation later on
