Is it possible to remove background noise through digital editing? I recorded my friend's song, but there were vehicles passing and dogs barking in the background, which I would like to remove. Is this a hard thing to do or would there be an application I can use for this purpose?

Hi, Yes it is possible. A program like Audacity will do it. Low level residual noise can be reduced in bulk in a recording and specific sounds one at a time. Please note though that a barking dog or passing car will not be possible as the maximum length of a single fix/repair is set by the program and it won't be able to smooth over such big things.

Good Listening

Part of the signature sound for some bands, Pink Floyd for example, IS the background noise. "Nobody Home" is a great example.

Since you can't eliminate it, see if it's possible to move those sounds to different parts of the song so as to make it sound like it was done to enhance the song.
