editing part of audio track

Recently I filmed a wedding anniversary. The recording of the speeches by a mic within arm reach of the those speaking did not work, so all I have is the audio from my camera mic which was quite a distance from where the speeches were given from.

The audio was faint and I'll have to boost the volume from 8-10 times in my audio editor (Goldwave) to be within a good sound range. This works. However I need to boost some speeches more than others.

The single video/audio track from the camera has now been edited to cut out extraneous material, so by and large each speeech is now an event on its own.

I selected the first speech, opened the editor and that speech alone was there to edit. Great...that is exactly what I wanted.

However when I selected and opened the second speech, all 44 minutes of the the audio track came up, rather than just the one selected speech.

How do I just get one section of the audio track at a time to the audio editor?

Have you tried the "open copy in Goldwave" option in Vegas?
If you have without success, what I suspect you'll have to do is to render each section out as a separate wave file (give it a new name to protect the original file, just in case!!), import that into Goldwave, modify it, save it and then re-import it back into Vegas.
Add it as a "take" over top of the old audio clip or simply replace it.

Well that was odd!

If I selected 'Open copy in audio editor', just the take would open. If I then immediately closed the editor, then selected 'Open in audio editor' the take only would be selected.

However...if I missed out the first step of selecting 'Open copy in audio editor', and went straight to 'Open in audio editor' instead, the whole track would open!
