I like cross fading manually. That allows me to get the exact effect I want,
or at least close before my patience runs out.
The first thing to do is to decide how long you want the face. You may want a
very fast swap, a somewhat longer one or a very long one. Set the overlap of
your tracks accordingly. It is usually good to start the face in before you
start the face out so as not to have a dip in the sound. While playing with it
just now, I also set the end point of the face in beyond where the first track
faded out. That worked in this case due to the particular sources I was cross
fading but may not always be relevant.
I just used Fade In and Fade Out on Audacity’s effect menu. Depending on your
sources and preference, Adjustable Fade in the effects menu may be better
suited. As the name suggests, it gives you more control over the type of fade.

Subject: [audacity4blind] fade in, fade out, cross fade, what's the difference?
Hello. I believe the subject should sum it up. There is one additional thing.
How would I manually cross fade? I find the settings don't work for me well.
Thee might be a plugin that does this better. If so, I'd love to know about
