"proud" of is that while recording swamp sounds (mainly frogs) one

be a beaver who promptly wacked its tail on the water (like a
cannonball).  I caught the moment on audio.  You can listen to it at

I liked your swamp sounds & thunderstorm. I went out to record rain...
and got lots of cars & trucks going by. This has been my biggest

some of the canned noise reduction operations on these clips.

Does Adobe Audition have a graphic equalizer? Cool Edit does. you can
edit out the rumble of wind, and the hiss of, whatever it is.

Cutting out extraneous noise is actually a lot easier for nature
recordists than it would be if we were recording rock bands. Because
the nature sounds usually stay on one pitch (crickets for instance)
and it's easy to edit out everything else.

I'm going to try & make some .wav files now.
