Yup - linear as not in dBs but equal power as you say. The different
fade out/fade in functions have a constant slope in dBs as with a
fader and so are logarithmic fades. On a mixer, for a cross-fade, you
have to slide the second fader nearly up to -3dB before moving the
first fader downwards. NB two non-identical sounds of equal level sum
to +3B but two identical (coherent) sounds sum to +6dB.
