When you have some vocals recorded in Audacity, select the sound you want to change. Go to the EFFECT menu and choose EQUALIZATION.

This will give you the Equalization Effect window. Here you can make changes to the frequencies of your recordings.

By clicking GRAPHIC EQ you will be given a number of vertical sliders which can be used to change the sound of your track. The sliders to the right are the high frequencies (pitches) and the sliders to the left are the lower frequencies. Play with the sliders to find a sound you like, hit ok and listen to the changes. If you don’t like what you hear then go EDIT UNDO and try some new settings.

Check out the EQ presets provided by Audacity. As you play with these you will find that they will give you a better understanding of how your sound will change with changes to the vocal EQ.

Explore the vocal EQ to find settings that best work for you. When you find some settings that work, you may want to save your vocal EQ settings within the plugin by clicking SAVE AS.
