Effects...my favorite topic

Hi all,

I am working on a project right now where I have to show examples of effects in Audacity. I have first recorded my audio, and now I am going back to add in the effects. I have highlighted, for example, the track where I say the word “echo” and will apply the Echo effect. I highlighted it, and selected Echo from the menu(all was bolded in the menu). I hit “OK,” yet when I hit Play, the effect did not happen.

Any suggestions? I don’t get it.

What settings did you use for the Echo effect?
Which version of Audacity are you using?
