Crossfading does _not_ require hardware mixing. It requires mixing. This can
be a hardware or software implementation. On Linux, ALSA automatically
provides software mixing via DMix as a fallback. Other operating systems
provide similar facilities.
If this does not work right on your box, then your setup is simply broken. The
problem is not with Amarok.
