I've read the Logic Express 9 Apple Pro Training Series book as well as searched the online manual- can't figure this out for the life of me! I tried a work-around which was to fade each individual track with the fade tool but I've got a Ultrabeat track, with varying patterns, that the fade tool won't work on.  Even tried creating an Apple loop out of the Ultrabeat patterns but that didn't work either.

    You can use volume automation on your output track.


    1) Open the mixer and click on the button just above the pan knob on the Output strip.  Select "Latch."


    2) As soon as you do this, the Output track will appear in the arrange window below your other tracks.


    3) Press "A" to show automation on your tracks.


    4) Press on the long gray bar beneath the Output track name and select "Volume."


    5) Click anywhere on the yellow automation line to create two nodes and drag the last one down for your fade.


    That should do it.
