Thanks for replying. I wouldn't call it dense, buzzy, or crackly. I guess it's just me being picky.
I just noticed that when I played the original project in the timeline, it seems to have more depth and space. When I exported it to WAV it seemed to lose some of that. I included a short 6 second WAV sample. I hope this is enough to help. I am using WIndows Vista.
I really love Audacity though. I used to use my old Vesta Fire 4-track recorder back in the old days for my projects.
