check this recent feature request ;-)

Did you try the Input box "Fx chain fade duration" down to the cursor ?

You have a vims control for toogle fx state ... you be doable somehow.

I: VIMS selector 377 'Enable / disable effect on current entry'

have a look to "$ veejay -u" if you don't know...

Feature request ? ;-)
