Making your voice track sound thicker is very easy. A common practice is to double up the track. To do this you need to sing your vocal part in twice. Make sure that you sing exactly the same thing both times.

Once you have 2 tracks recorded select the second track and go EDIT - DUPLICATE. Now you will have 3 tracks: The first one you sang (track 1) and 2 copies of the second one you sang (tracks 2 and 3). Next PAN or balance track 2 all the way to the left and track 3 all the way to the right.

Last step will need the TIME SHIFT TOOL in Audacity. Using the time shift tool move track 2 very slightly to the left and track 3 very slightly to the right. You may want to play with the amount of time shifting you do and using the zoom tool helps.

Play it back and it will sound amazing :)

Rock on,
