    You need a "pitch shifter" that has either manual control or can be fed from a low-frequency oscillator.

    The frequency shifter in Audacity can only work with a manually-set value, not under external control, so it needs VST plugins that can be appropriately interconnected.Audacity does not have the capability yet to simply add multiple VST plugins; you need a real DAW to do things like this easily.

    There are lots of free pitch shifters, eg.

    You could just manually vary the pitch in one as the sample is running through it.

    Or use an LFO to control modulation, as another answer suggests?

    I like Audacity as an audio editor, it's superb for that - but I'd never try and substitute it for a proper DAW for serious work.

    The makers claim it can now take a VST plugin, so you could try one of the pitch shifters.

    Personally, I'd stick with Tracktion, it's infinitely more flexible for this type of audio work & you can get it free.
