Hi Guys!

Say I select one word on a vocal track that needs a little more volume. Is there a really simple method I could use to boost it a few decibels?
Thank you!

Do you have any other takes where you sang the word louder? If so, you could simply copy and paste.

Thanks for the reply, R2!
I just had this issue and ended up singing another take; often I'll use auto-record to re-sing just a phrase or sentence. If I paste in a word from another take, often that single word won't "match up" well with it's context.
But for future reference I'd love to find a way to essentially dsp-process the clip a little louder without resorting to sending the track over to the computer.
I really appreciate hearing from you!

That sort of thing is dead-simple using automation...and non destructive, because you haven't changed the clip, only the playback of that part of the clip. For precise automation moves, use the "Trim Faders" function. You could try DSP by "normalizing" the word or syllable.

John -
Thanks for your helpful reply. I'm glad you're still "waiting in the weeds"!
