How to reduce recorded level

I recorded my band but set the recording level too high. Is it possible to reduce the recorded volume “after the event”? I’m using 3.2.5.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Generally not. That is why it always best to record with plenty of headroom. You can experiment with Clip Fix - Audacity Manual, but “it is only likely to be effective for repairing lightly clipped audio.”

Thanks jademan, I feared as much. Normally I allow plenty of headroom, but hadn’t checked my recording settings beforehand - schoolboy error!
