Noise removed in Audacity but not in exported file

Help for Audacity 2.x.x on Mac OS X.

ImageThis forum is for Audacity 2.x.x on Mac OS X 10.4 and later.
Please state which version of OS X you are using, the exact three-section version of Audacity from Audacity > About Audacity and whether you obtained the .dmg installer or the zip.

Audacity 1.2.x and 1.3.x are obsolete and no longer supported. If you still have those versions, please upgrade at https://www.audacityteam.org/download/.
The old forums for those versions are now closed, but you can still read the archives of the 1.2.x and 1.3.x forums.

I play the file, no noise. I think I’m done and can just export the file.

That sounds just right (though tweaking some of the settings in the Noise Removal effect may improve the results, but we can come back to that later).

Could you give a step-by-step breakdown of exactly how you are doing that.
It sounds like you are doing everything right, but there must be something not quite right because the exported file should not sound different from the track in Audacity.

I expected it to sound the same.

I just go to File > Export, leave the setting to WAV and choose a place and filename.

If you import the processed file back into Audacity and play it, how does it sound?
What program were you using to play the exported file?
Were you listening with the same headphones/speakers?
