To listen to each individually, you can select the "Mute" button for each on the left.
To cut or copy partial audio, select the "Selection Tool" (the cursor icon on the toolbar) and select sections you want.
To create another level by navigating to "Project," and then "New Audio Track."

To adjust the levels of your audio tracks. Choose the Envelope Tool from your toolbar, it will highlight your tracks with thick purple lines, then drag the two white triangles to push on a purple line, resulting in level adjustment. If this happens on the start or the end, you will get the Fade-in/Fade-out effect.
