I run Audacity on a mac mini, OS X.10.4 YOSEMITE.
I want to select a portion of a track, and lower the volume/ amplitude of
the selected area. The Amplify Effect only increases the amplitude,
even if I slide the slider to the left. The manual contradicts this. On my mac, the
amplitude only increases, but I need to decrease selections.
Advice is required. Thank you !
Thanks for replying.
I have Audacity 2.1.0,
YES I can push slider to the left, and the numbers in the
box change, accordingly,normally.
However, when I apply the effect,
the modification occurs POSITIVELY, even though the
numbers appear -23 in the negative.
I reinstalled this version of Audacity, same response.
So, it is quite mysterious.
I am not familiar with ENVELOPE TOOL.
Perhaps that will be helpful. Also, a friend of mine installed Audacity on his mac YOSEMITE.
He also finds AMPLIFY will not alter tracks into the nefgative. Exactly what I experience.
So, I am stumped by this !
Trebor provides an interesting window with a video of actions
taken by cursor via ENVELOPE TOOL !
Where can I find this demo video?
I have not found any demo videos via the manual.
In fact, I could not find any reference to ENVELOPE TOOL.
I am a total novice. I realize that I have to go slowly,and first
understand how to use the manual, and how to learn one step
at a time.
For example, the envelope demo shows something that does not match what my
window sees when I click eNVELOPE TOOL.
I know it will be a slow learnig curve, and I don’t want to abuse the forum consultation
by asking too many basic things. It could become tedious and ridiculous.

We’re not bashful. We’ll tell you when you’re being tedious and ridiculous.
Select the whole track by clicking just above MUTE.
The envelope tool is the two white arrows and bent blue line. That puts blue activity lines above and below your track. Those click and drag (attach) and the sound follows you. Or should follow you.
