Ecasound isn't necessarily the best program for the job, but there are
some things you could try. For instance, try lowpass filtering the audio.
Something like "ecasound -i file.wav -o filtered.wav -efl:10000". That
filters all signals above 10000Hz. And of course, the same thing 4000Hz ->
20000Hz, whatever sounds best.
Here's what I wrote a few months ago on this list:

It's really hard to give detailed guide lines for this. If the
noise is limited to narrow spectrum area, you can use ecasound's
filters (bandpass, bandreject, etc) to filter out that range.
If the noise is spread around the spectrum, you're better of
trying Matti Koskinen's denoi, dnr and anoi utils (see
