I am afraid that I can't really help you much since I havent used the
system too much, but have a look at the examples page
That's a great examples page!
And then, _start your ecasound with the -c option_, meaning that you want
it to run in the interactive mode. Then you can type 'h' for help and gain
information how to look at current chainsetup and other statuses. You
should in fact try to get the exact positions of 'something happening' on
your recording in seconds, and write them to a piece of paper, because
then it is easier to go on with editing commands. Ecasound is not like an
old cassette player. It is buggy, and sometimes requires restart in order
to continue processing in a stabile way. (I'm sorry to say this).
