Tools in Audacity to improve your sound clips
If you’re still choosing to use audacity to edit your sound clips, here’s a couple of tips to help improve the quality of your soundscape.
First, if you want to change the magnitude of the sound of your clip, simply highlight the portion of the clip you want to work with, then at the top of your audacity window, go to the Effect tab and select amplify, the first option.
After amplify, you’ll see this new box pop up:
