HELP! I'm doing an audiobook narration (my first). How do I initiate Compression on an audio/vocal file?

Drag-select the portion you want to correct, or, click above the MUTE button for the whole file. Effect > Compressor. The compressor settings depend on where you start and where you want to end.
