Hi Michael,

Thanks for the tip, but if I see correctly this is a Windows program. I run=
 Debian GNU/Linux and so if there is a possibility in GNU/Linux, I'd prefer=
 that. Otherwise I might have to come back to that and find someone with a =
Windows machine...

 some noise reduction with 'audacity', but the result was not extraordinary=
. Is it possible to reduce noise in snd ? And if yes, could someone just br=

s ? I have read through the manual, but since I'm not familiar with the voc=
abulary of sound engineering this is not always easy.
