I want to raise the vocal slightly in a finished track without increasing the backing is there anyway to do this Thanks
maybe: if the vocal is centre-panned.
Audacity can isolate centre … https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/vocal_reduction_and_isolation.html
NB: other instruments like bass & percussion could also be centred, so only boost the vocal-range of frequencies, say 200Hz to 5000Hz
There is a free plugin from voxengo: overtoneGEQ
it his 2 equalizers (with sliders), one for mid (centre) one for side.
by raising the mid sliders only you could make center-panned vocal louder in the mix.
