Recorded Voice too low

So I recorded a phone call (the person knew they were being recorded) and my voice is plenty loud enough but their voice is really really quiet. I tried using amplify, but then it just made my breathing and the white noise really loud as well. Anyone know what to do? It was recorded on a program called CR Lite. Thank you!

their voice is really really quiet.

It was recorded on a program called CR Lite.

Recording a valuable call should be the second time you try this, not the first.

If you can’t recognize individual words, then the Audacity tools aren’t going to do any good. You didn’t get both sides of the conversation. What you actually got was your voice and the far side echo cancellation and noise reduction trash.

Audacity can’t split a mixed performance into individual instruments, voices, or sounds.


CRL records your microphone input and speaker output, which makes it perfect for recording calls made with any softphone app (traditional audio recorders only record your microphone).

So it didn’t work. Do they have a forum or help desk where you can ask?

The only way I know of to do a recording is use a separate device. You can record Skype calls by putting your phone in the middle of the table on record. Record telephone or cellphone calls by using a special microphone and a separate sound recorder. Skype and Zoom calls may be recorded with their native on-line recorders.

This isn’t easy. Podcasting people run into this all the time. “I want to do a podcast where I interview people on Skype.” Do a dry run first. Don’t let a valuable interview be your first one.


Okay thank you for the help. I can hear the words, it is just super quiet! It is strange because I did do a practice run and it worked the first time, so I am not sure what happened.
