Audacity 2.0.6 ~ Windows 7 64-bit
I record wildlife cam streams and upload clips to YouTube for publishing on forums and in Facebook groups. I am useless with Audacity but since forum member Trebor help me (nearly 3 years ago!) I’ve had a go at Noise Removal on the odd occasion when it was really necessary, but I need help with the finer points.

I’ve noticed that the audio always starts out distorted after noise removal, but it does settle down.
I’d be grateful for any tips - but I don’t understand technical language.
