How do I add distortion to a track? I’ve done a forum search and didn’t find anything. I saw where someone suggested Effect > Leveling, but that’s not what I’m looking for. I’m looking for heavy metal/hard rock kinds of distortion. Is that possible with Audacity?
Leveler is a little wimpy. Try Effect > Hard Limiter. You can also try the effects more than once.
I’ve just posted a plug-in that you could try: https://forum.audacityteam.org/t/distortion-effect/29887/1
