There are two “easy” fixes for this scenario:
- Increase your input-volume.
- Speak-up, soldier!
I, too, am a “quite talker” and used to have quite the issues “back in the days” - and, to fix the volume-issues in my videos/streams, I decided to go with fix number 1.
First things first, in your Audacity window, have you increased the input-volume to a high level? (input and preview-output volume sliders are found in the top right corner)
Additionally, you should check your microphone settings.
For now, I’ll assume you are a Windows user.
In your taskbar at the (most likely) bottom of your screen, there is a speaker-icon. Right-click it, and select “Recording Devices” (or something similar).
Locate your microphone in the list, and select Settings. Select the “Advanced”-tab, and increase the quality as much as you can. Mine is set as “Channel 2, 16 bits, 48000 Hz”.
Are you increasing your output-volume directly in Audacity or via your Video Rendering software?
