Hello everyone.

I've been tinkering with sound editors for some time, but have always struggled 
to find ones that will allow for much fine tuning, sselection and easy 
manipulation without visual assistance. Until recently I was using goldwave 
editor; generally a great programme with some strange quirks. I just decided to 
try audacity and so far I am pretty impressed. I haven't had much time to play 
yet but I'm anticipating having considerable success with this software. Well 
done, developers!

One thing that has struck me is the number of plugins available for studio 
effects and so on. Most of them have easy to use controls which can be 
manipulated with sliders or number entry, which I like. I recently got this 
Killer Ring MOdulator plugin because...well, I admit it, I want to create Dalek 
voices! I'm finding though that I can't adjust the sliders to fine enough 
increments. There's no field for number entry and the level of "notches" raised 
or lowered by each press of the right or left arrow is too high. FOr example, 
if I want a root pitch of 0.004, the lowest I can get is 0.009, and going up to 
0.019, etc, all the way to 9999 I believe.

Any ideas on how I can fix this? Hopefully I'm being clear enough...I'm still 
pretty new to this stuff and have a lot to learn.
