You can choose the speed according to your wish. In the ‘to’ box, you need to enter the existing speed and in the ‘from’ box you need to enter the value of the speed that you want.

Why should you not use this feature?
Audacity recommends its users not to use this feature in their recordings frequently, because this will not be fruitful.

This feature will lead to a change in the equalization, which will degrade the quality of your audio.
Also, the cartridges do not perform well after the frequency of 20Hz, which will again lead to an increase in the distortions in your recording. And, it will not provide the results that you want. The audio content will lose its quality and clarity. Therefore, you must try to avoid using this feature in your recordings in Audacity and use this feature only when you really require it.
