With SFX you can create cues to change the volume of other playing cues.
These Volume Change cues not only modify the volume of a cue, but they

When you create a Volume Change cue you specify how many seconds the
fade will occur as well as which cue or cues the Volume Change will affect. To select

You can choose different curves for each crosspoint!

night-after-night and reduces operator error and inconsistencies.
