I was trying to make voice deeper by going
effects menu- time and pitch -pitch bender - pitch bender - stretch and pitch process - presets - lower pitch

however in effects menu - pitch bender is greyed out and in favorites - lower voice is greyed out why is this is and how can I make is selectable?

Have you made a selection in which to use the effect in your audio track?

it did not...while in multitrack view but I found if I double clicked my selection to view only my in to out point of the waveform or go to waveform view my favorites and "process" selections were no longer greyed out.

You're right Heather - in Multitrack mode, effects work a bit differently than on a single track, but here's a good discussion of how they work:

can you explain using destructive effects in AU cs6? Should I make a duplicate folder of my original clips or source files and have a second folder to which I can apply effects without risk of harming the original file? Also after I quit AU (used it for the first time yesterday) and it asked me to save all these new title_aligned.wav files that I hadn't aligned...at least not on purpose and asked me to make a duplicate of certain files that had destructive affects on them because they would be applied now.

The best practice you can use is to do a Save As for your "clean" version, and save that as a separate file. Don't do any effects on that one, and then you can always come back to it. Here's a good discussion:
