The noise is coming from the binaural mics I have.  i have changed every other 
variable and am convinced this is where the noise comes from.  The only reason 
it really matters is that I am more particular than i have to be.  Yes, I could 
get another set of mics, and will probably do this, but right now am just 
trying to either use the equipment I have or what is out there that is free to 
make the most of what I have already done.

      This all reminds me of a cassette recorder I once had.  It featured Dolby 
tm, noise reduction, and like Neal said, the more you turned the noise 
reduction on, the less fidelity there was in the recording.  I know I missed it 
somewhere , but, what is causing the noise to begin with?  Is there any 
improvement on that side that would prevent some of the noise?  I mean, like 
wind screen or turning off background noise makers like fans, computers, radios 
and so on?  If you are just trying to convert audio from one format to another, 
the less steps the better and certainly check the program you are using for 
settings or options.  I use CDEX to convert some file types and it does a great 
job and is free.  Hope any of this helps.

    Hello all!  i am very happy to report, that after downloading the demo for 
Window eyes, i have discovered that WE will in fact read some of the 
information used in the sonic stage software.  Also, it does appear that there 
are some keyboard shortcuts, that i could use even without having the screen 
read.  I think I will be able to transfer entire groups of things, with a bit 
of memorization, but don't know about individual tracks.  really not sure the 
extent of what i will be able to do at this time, but thought I would at least 
try to use sonic stage to play files on the minidisc, and another internal 
recorder to record them to wave form.  I have done this successfully, so know 
that this will at least be an option as I do not have a line in and still have 
not gotten that USB sound card figured out for sure.  

    Now, I'd like to improve on the recordings.  I am using Wave Pad which does 
give you the option of editing for  noise reduction, however, when I performed 
this, though it did take out the internal hissing microphone noise, it left me 
with a bit of a watery sounding file much like happens when there is too much 
compression.  can any of the sound experts on the list give me any ideas why 
this may have happened?  And is there anything i can do to fix it?  i can 
adjust the amount of noise it takes out, will this help?
