I have seen alot of discussion here seeking to quantify the internal
noise levels of various brands of microphones. For example, as per
the reported drawbacks of the otherwise desirable Zoom and Eirodol
recorders. Mic noise seems to be a function of build quality, which
means higher and higher cost.

How effective is shareware noise reduction software in allowing the
results from a cheap "noisier" mic to approximate those of a more
expensive less noisy one? To what degree is this practical for
regular use? Do we have any comparative test data using such
processing techniques?

While Googling for insight I came across something a bit different. A
technique using CoolEdit to _remove_ a bird call from a music track.
Might be of interest in an upside down kind of way. Or maybe someone
has an airplane in their rainforest.
