Hi Luis,
the project looks interesting, but as you say, it doesn't look like it
does what I'm asking for.  I'm currently not interested in removing
ticks, noise or crackle from my recordings (they don't really bother me).
The various denoising tools I've tried in the past seem to remove the
brightness from the music, and that bothers me more than noise does.
However, I will try gwc out if I can get it to run (I don't use gnome).
I might be pleasantly surprised.

So, I'm still looking for help on this.  As I said before, I don't know
Scheme, Ruby or Lisp.  If I have to solve this alone I'll probably
write a program in C to analyze the recording and print out the skip
locations, but having something embedded in snd where I actually do
the removal would be much nicer.
