Welcome Robin! You have asked a question that has been at the back of my
mind for a long time. Thanks!

fadeout.ck exists I think. You can fadeout all of chuck with this method
but it isn't great for smoothly dumping one shred while keeping the
others active.

I like this suggestion. I would love to have some boilerplate code so
that you could work with shreds in a kind of mixing environment where
each shred had it's own volume control that could be *easily* (not
necessarily simply) accessed from another place. I have used OSC in the
past but I would love to see some other suggestions, possibly using
command line arguments. This is a worthy tutorial for the manual ;)
Anyone got something working?
