When playing a waveform using Audacity®, measured voltage waveform shows fade-in effect.

The version 2.3.0 of Audacity® applies an automatic fade-in effect at playback even though the generated tone looks normal on the screen.

Since version 2.3.1, this fade-in can be deactivated in the menu Edit, option Preferences… In the section Playback, make sure the Micro-fades box is unchecked.
