Trying to level out an mp3 [SOLVED]

Hi guys I have a problem that I hope you guys can help me out with. First of all Im using Audacity 2.0.5 on an home built AMD A10-7850K APU with Radeon™ R7 Graphics using Windows 7 Professional 32 bit SP1.

So with Audacity I took a phrase then split it into 2 parts then dropped another phrase in the middle of the 2 parts. My problem is that the phrase that I split into two parts are the the same level but the phrase I dropped in the middle of the two parts is at a higher level than the parts of the original phrase. My question is how do I get that middle phrase to be the same level as the other two parts.

I tried to highlight the part I want to bring down the level but that doesn’t seem to work, can someone tell me what Im doing wrong.

You can try the Envelope Tool (two white arrows and bent blue line). That allows you to change individual words and phrases as you wish.


Hey kozikowski

Thank you so much your suggestion to use the envolope tool worked like a charm. :smiley:
