So select all, Amplify, and then what? Move the slider up?

It sounds like you are using software other than Audacity. As the volume is just below the recommended minimum almost any increase in volume should suffice to make the file volume acceptable so, yes, just increase it a small amount. I will get back to you with the new file volume.

No, I am only using Audacity. When I select amplify, it gives me a slider to adjust the db level.

I have made a stab at it:

Will upload again with correct filename if I've fixed the problem. Have no idea why the volume is suddenly weird. Thanks for your help!

3 PL OK.

The overall file volume is 91.5dB, within the +/-3dB range we aim for in recordings. so yes upload the file with the proper file name. It will replace the old uploads. Below are some instructions for how to install software that determines file volume. Completely ignore them if you wish.

Use the instructions below to install the plugin ReplayGain into Audacity.
- Click this link,
http://forum.audacityteam.org/download/file.php?id=4685
and save the file to your computer - somewhere you can find it.
- Then go to the folder in which Audacity is installed (on my computer, it's in C:\Program Files (x86)\Audacity) and open the Plug-Ins folder.
- Drag or copy the file you saved into the Plug-Ins folder.
- The next time you start up Audacity go to Effects/ReplayGain, and it'll tell you how much to amplify your file. If you highlight part of the file it will tell you how much to amplify just that part of the file. It does not give you the exact dB of the file but it can be inferred from how much it tells you to amplify.

Another useful program is Mp3Gain. It gives you actual dB levels for the audio file and it can also analyze multiple files. It is a separate program independent from Audacity and is available free at the following link:
http://mp3gain.sourceforge.net/download.php

Always use Audacity (Effects/Amplify) to change the volume of the file. If clipping occurs and prevents amplification you will need to use Effects/Compression to amplify without clipping. Watch the video below.
