This one’s practically a “gimme.” Simple graphic change with straightforward, apparent benefits. I’m sure there are dependencies here and there, but compared to the current crop of Audacity problems, this should be a stroll in the park. Something that could be tackled, say, before lunch.
I do not like working in Waveform (dB) because most important sound management (except noise) happens in the top 24dB. Perfect for linear waves.
The fake graphic only has the positive-going waves because I wasn’t up to Photoshopping all the values between the two zero points. That and I think -24 is actually in the wrong place. It’s a free-hand illustration.
I did discover one dependency. Generate > Tone is in Percent. Others may be, too.
“Make a -20dB tone.”
“Sure. Let’s see. Divide by Log 10… No, wait. Divide by 20 …”
