Increase the loudness of a .wav file
Posted on 2008-06-14
I'm not sure if I where to ask this question, but here it goes...
I am inserting .wav files into a video game. I found the sounds on the internet and they sound ok as far as the loudness or volume goes.
However, when I insert them into my game their loudness decreases drastically. I edited the .wav files in Audacity 1.2.6 and increased the amplitude. This helps, but not by much and the background distortion is increased.also.
I suspect that the issue is that the original sounds were not recorded loud enough. But I am not very good at sound editing and do not sure. So maybe someone could help me out with some information on how or even if I can increase the loudness of my .wav files beside what I have already done?
