voice to background music ratio audacity?

Hi everyone,

I’m beginning to podcast and I still haven’t mastered the right voice-to-background music ratio. Whenever I add music to my vocals it’s either too loud or not loud enough. Is there an efficient way to make it sound right?

Many thanks!


Add each “thing” (voice / background music / sound effect / …) in it’s own track. Then you can use the “Mixer Board” to adjust the levels of the track until it “sounds right”.
