Cross-fade

A velocity threshold effect in a synthesizer in which one sound is triggered at low velocities and another at high velocities, with a fade-out/fade-in transition between the two. If the transition is abrupt rather than gradual, the effect is called cross-switching rather than cross-fading. Cross-fading can also be initiated from a footswitch, LFO, or some other controller.
