Compression in Audacity

Audacity wouldn’t offer ACX-compliant make-up gain

Audacity does publish an ACX correction suite of tools.

Also included is ACX-Check, a tool to measure success.

If you start with a reasonable recording in a quiet room, it should be possible to create AudioBook chapters without a big fuss. The quiet room is usually the problem.

We also publish a technique for you to post a sample voice clip for evaluation here on the forum. Record your voice clean with no corrections. We’ll see how much work we have to do to make it ACX compliant.

Quick note, you do have to be able to read. There is no acting filter or correction.

Let us know.
