Increase Size of Waveforms Size on Softer Audio

I have some videos with me speaking. The audio is not loud, but not too soft. I wanted to edit the video and use the waveform to see help know where the silent parts are. However the waveform’s “humps” are not very high.

Is there a way to increase the lines/humps on a wave form?

I even played with the idea of increasing the gain of the audio with a filter then rebuilding the waveform, but that did not work. It seems like there has to be a way. What am I missing?



It will work if you increase gain then export to a new file and then import THAT file to work with.
You can export to a lossless format so as not to degrade your video.
