I've played around with many of the features of Audacity since I got it, and 
was particularly intrigued by the sound generators. Of course, there's only so 
much you can do with tones and white/pink noise, and although I have installed 
the Nyquist "Surf LFO" plug-in, it's not the same as real waves, though it 
comes close. My question is, are there any really good sites out there where I 
can download free, high-quality background sounds (high quality meaning they 
sound exactly as they would if you were encountering them in reality and are in 
stereo) that I could use for any future Audacity projects? Things like waves, 
wind, running water, rain, bird and animal calls (individual. I can mix them 
together to make things sound more natural later), and the like are what I'm 
after. Alternatively, if anyone on this list has a package of such sounds that 
they downloaded previously, I'd love to get in touch off-list. :D
