Important tips on Playback Volume
You can modify or change the volume level individually for each track.
- For this, you can use the “–” and “+” signs in the track control panel to set the volume according to your comfort.
- The excessive right of the pointer indicates very high volume and the excessive left indicates very low volume. Try adjusting the volume in between the range.
- If you play multiple tracks or recordings at the same time, the output volume will be the combined volume.
- So, you have to move the gain slider for each track to reduce or increase the combined volume. To maintain a balance in all the tracks, try to adjust the volume at the same level.
- This will maintain uniformity in the audio and make it sound good.
- If you are not satisfied with the size of the playback meter toolbar, you can edit it anytime in Audacity.
You can increase or decrease the size of the toolbar as you wish.
