I hope someone can help - I am trying to create a backing track comprising several tracks. I understand how to do that but two of the tracks that come from CD’s are recorded at different volumes - how do I change the volumes so that they are the same?
- Import both tracks (they appear one above the other).
- Align them end to end, but keep them on separate tracks.
Caution: If you boost the level of either track, it can cause the audio to play back distorted, so usually it is a matter of reducing the level of the loud track rather than boosting the level of the quiet track.
- Use the Track Gain controls (http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/audio_tracks.html#gain) to adjust the playback level of the tracks so that they sound the same (and not distorted).
- Export your finished masterpiece.
