Default All of a sudden, PT12 fades in slowly when pressing play? [solved]

I haven't messed with settings in months.. yet today, in the middle of a session, PT12 is now fading in slloooowwwly when I press play.
I went to prefs/editing/fades... saw that the "fades dialog preview pre-roll and post roll" were both set to 3000 msecs... quickpunch crossfade length was set to 0... I set them all to 0 ... still nothing changed... long (annoying!) fade across all songs.

What setting am I missing? Is there something else?
Your help is greatly appreciated.

You may have written automation to your master output fader without knowing it. Or added/deleted a data point by accident.

DREW! Thanks so much! haha I was hoping it was something that simple... and yes, I was adjusting the in/out there earlier so it makes sense I accidentally toggled that fade on.. ..

good to know... I was searching through all kinds of advanced settings!! haha
