Even if I increase the slider, the mic input gets louder and distorted.
If you move the slider up, how high will the level go? Can you get it to go up to 0 dB? (Don't play the recording - it will be very loud and horrible - I'm just interested in how high it will go).

Re: Auto Duck misses sections on a 60 minute audio file

It would be much easier for us to see what you are doing if your screenshots showed the waveforms rather than the spectrograms.

Yea so it's still taking unacceptably long.
If you can just open it once, and then export as WAV, then you can try jademan's suggestion.

Re: Audacity keeps crashing and/or going extreamly slow

With Audacity closed, copy the AUP3 to your "Documents" folder, then launch Audacity and try to open the new copy. ("cloud" drives are not suitable for "live" Audacity projects. They are OK for storing AUP3 files, but you are likely to have problems if you try to run th...

Re: Audacity keeps crashing and/or going extreamly slow

What size is the AUP3 file?
What is the file name and full file path?

Have you tried rebooting the computer, then launching Audacity 3.0.3, then opening the AUP3 file from "File menu > Open > select the file"?

Re: Draw tool spray inoperative

It's probably not possible to remove that noise entirely, but it can be reduced. Try the "Pop Mute" plug-in: https://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Nyquist_Effect_Plug-ins#Pop_Mute It's a "Nyquist plug-in". Installation instructions here: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/installin...

What am I doing wrong? Probably nothing. The spray can tool looks at a very localised region of samples, and smooths that region, so it is effective at smoothing small clicks and crackles, but if the waveform changes more slowly it has little or no effect. Please post a short section (just a few se...
