Audio Editing Help?

I've been playing with screenr (THANKS ARTICULATE!) and a conversion program for use with Windows Movie Maker, and think I could assemble some quick tutorials on editing audio.  As everyone seems to use a different editing program (I use Adobe Audition 1.0, for example) these should probably be of a general nature, but if you'd like some tips, and I can provide them, I'd be happy to do so.

Are there areas of audio editing you'd like some help with?  If so, I'll see what I can do for you.

I've learned to love Adobe Soundbooth. Sony (SonicFoundry) SoundForge was my tool of choice before based on the convenient region slicing. Tools like Soundbooth and Garageband offer what I call Newb presets for folks like me that can't be bothered to fiddle with the settings until it sounds good to me (especially since I don't necessarily have an ear for "great sound").

I can cut stuff up and organize like a bad man. But I like to leave the nuances of audio engineering quality to the pro's. There used to be a really good article up on garagegames.com that followed a game audio producer's process -- how he filtered, eq'd, compressed, and warmed up a voice actor for a game. It was a pretty cool article, he provided his settings and the results were pretty reliable. I can't find it at the moment but will return if I can find it in the wayback machine.
