Sure, almost any digital audio workstation software has limiters and 
compressors in it. Most will sound pretty bad on a nature sound file, 
because you can hear the ambient level going up and down. I get best 
results by automating artistic fader moves rather than using an 
automatic process.

What's the nature of the recording?
