I have several wav files some on my cell and some on audacity.
The two sections of track sound radically different.
Is there a way to capture the settings and effects from one track and incorporate them into another track?
Meaning replace the existing settings and effect of the target track with the settings and effects of another track.
Or is there a tool in audacity that allows you to capture the settings / tone / effects of one track and incorporate into the entire track? Either way would work for me.
I hope I am making sense.

Not really, but you can use Analyze → Plot Spectrum to see the frequency content (it can only look at a small part of the file at once) and then you can change the frequency balance with Effect ->Graphic EQ or Effect ->Filter Curve.
If you’re listening to the phone’s speaker, of course it can’t reproduce bass so you can make the file louder if you kill the bass. Limiting (with make-up gain) can also help to increase loudness. And there are some “weird things” that can happen when stereo files are played-back on a mono speaker.
That’s where I was going to go with that. If you recorded something on your phone, it may have added Echo Cancellation, Noise Reduction, and Volume Compression. If it did, you’re stuck. Those don’t come out.
Some phones offer a Clean Recorder App in addition to the regular voice recorder with all the processing. It’s a little harder to use, but it doesn’t have all those distortions.
