adjusting levels of a mono interview, one mic

I’m using OX 10.7.5, Audacity 2…0.5. I used the .dmg installer.

I have recorded a two person audio interview with one microphone. One person’s voice is much louder than the other. Is there some way to increase the soft voice and decrease the louder voice? I’ve tried the equalization and normalize effects, but haven’t resolved the problem.


They wouldn’t. Both of those affect the whole show at once.

People post questions like this trying to rescue a basket case show, so to prevent hours of useless work, can you post a bit of the interview featuring both performers? A couple of words of each will do. Do Not try to help it out. Send the raw show capture.

You can use very high quality MP3 for this one to get more test sound in.
