This Audacity Effects Tutorial will demonstrate how to use several of the common effects that are available on the Effects Menu. Effects are procedures that alter the sound of the selected audio clip.
The Basic Audacity Effects
Normalize will increase the volume of all of your tracks. This effect will make them as loud as possible without introducing clipping or distortion.
Fade In/Fade Out
Fade in and Fade out do exactly what they say. They gradually increase or decrease the sound based on the length of the track you have selected. After highlighting and selecting a piece of audio, choose Fade in or Fade out from the Effects menu and Audacity will taper off the sound for Fade Out or bring up the volume for Fade Out.
Tempo, Pitch and Speed
To apply any of these effects, select the track or a portion of it that you want the effect to be applied to, then select Change Pitch, Change Tempo, or Change Speed from the drop-down in the Effects Menu.
From there, dialog boxes will appear that will offer you many advanced options for modifying your audio. The most important of the options is the percent change slider which will increase or decrease the impact of the effect on your selected audio.
