It's just some fade-in sound. I'm not sure what exactly to record and fade-in to get that. Like what instrument and what I'd play.

I don't care if you hate the song, I'm not asking about it. I'm asking about the little fade-in parts.

You can hear a real quiet fast one at 0:58.
Then another at 1:28 that's easier to hear.
Then there's one more at 2:14, although this one just sounds like someone's voice.

How can I make a fading in sound like this?

Help greatly appreciated. Thanks =)

sounds like they automated the volume level and put a slight phase just on the fade up. Knowing how to automate effect and track parameters should give you this effect easily.

As for what instrument they applied the effects to, sounds like a synth or a sound effect track.

One last thing, look into reverse reverb techniques as they can give you similar results.

some similar things you could try are reversing a reverb, reversing a drum or cymbal, or reversing a fading out guitar.

basically, take any track that has a definite fade out (like a crash or a drum hit) and reverse it.

Reverse a fade out, apply heavy heavy reverb, process, done.
I've bought, sold, and traded more gear than I care to admit.

So for the part at 2:14.. how should I do that one?

Should I exhale and then reverse it? or should I just breathe in regularly?

If that's even a voice.. it might just be a wind type sound.

It's a really deep inhale, POSSIBLY (try both) reversed, and then heavy reverb.
