Gravelly spoken voice

(Using Mac, snow leopard, Audacity 2.03)

I’m editing a tape converted to .WAV and am dealing with 3 different spoken voices on the same tape. Two women; one man.

The man’s voice sounds gravelly, whereas in person, it doesn’t.
It’s not gravelly throughout the whole tape, only in places, probably due to how close he was to the mic?

Is there a specific effect I could apply to the bad parts?
Any advice appreciated


As a fuzzy rule, you can’t change voices into anything else. Select a portion of the voice and post it so we can listen.


I’m attaching a sample: First 3 seconds gravelly; next piece more normal.
