Acoustic to electric?

First time poster, long-time user, currently running Audacity 2.0.0.

Is there a way to make an acoustic guitar song sound more like electric guitar? Just something to give it more of a buzzy sound. I’m already aware it would also effect percussion & vocals (if there were any).

Thanks in advance.

Effect > Leveler and Effect > Hard Limiter.

The only “distortion” effect that is shipped with Audacity is the “Leveller” effect.

If you use Windows you may be able to find a more guitar orientated VST distortion effect that will work with Audacity.
If you use Windows you could use “Guitarix”.
