Hi Christian, thanks for your reply. My plan was to select regions
and apply the effect only to those regions. One common problem is
that a speaker will turn away from the mike for a while, so that area
is much softer. Perhaps the envelope tool would do what I want, but
I'm a rank newbie.

Well, I want the new tracks to overlap each other by an amount I
specify. So I want
0:00 - 5:05
5:00 - 10:05
Perhaps I'll need to look for something scriptable like ImageMagick
for sound files, or just continue to use GoldWave.
Thanks again for your help,
