    I need to know how to compress my vocals.... I hear that will cure my problem with certain parts of my vocals being too low and when I do amplify these parts it still isnt exact I need to compress them all to equal how do I do this using cool edit pro 2.0? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks for taking your time to read this!

    Transform>Amplitude>Dynamics Processing..if I remember correctly?

    Be careful with that. It's easy to overdo, and could make it sound nasty. Know where your Undo button is.

    Beware that the compression algorithm in CoolEdit can produce disappointing results. It's hard to see how such an inherently straightforward process could be improperly implemented.

    you could also load your vocals onto a track in multitrack mode. there should be a "fx" button for each track where you can select non-destructible effects. this way you can re-adjust the compression until it suits your needs. when you have the desired result you make a mixdown of that track which creates a new file.
