You can change the width of the audio tool, by resizing the green borders. The height of the playbar is fixed, so making the tool taller will not have any effect.
Use the preview button to see the result.
For more info on the audio player, please refer to the extended guide:

TIP: If you want to import a CD track, you will first have to "rip" it as a wav or mp3. Browsers do not allow you to open an audio track from CD. You can do this with either iTunes or Windows Media Player.
