I am using the alpha if that makes any difference, it shouldn't. I looked under view already and I don't see any relevant options, I also tried to box select the audio track and resize with "S" but its not working. As you can see I can barely see the waveform can someone please help me?

From official manual:

Navigating — Blender Manual 2.80

Use these shortcuts to adjust the sequence area of the VSE:


  • Scale View: Ctrl-MMB and drag up/down (vertical scale) or left/right (horizontal scale).
  • Scale View Vertically: drag on the circles on the vertical scrollbar.
  • Scale View Horizontally: drag on the circles on the horizontal scrollbar.
