Beachtek / 5D MK II / Fixable?

Hey guys:

I need some help. I'l admit that I don't know the first thing about audio. I JUST took a Final Cut Pro training class about 3 months ago, so I'm still really new at everything audio/video.

I'm looking for some general advice on how to start with audio cleaning. I got my Beachtek DXA-5D in today, and I think my source audio is passable (but not great). But I think it is clean enough to fix it up & make it sound pretty.

I've uploaded the file - could anyone out there take a look & give me the step-by-step on where to start with audio editing?

Update - just some quick searching around in Google helped me find the "Reduce Noise" feature in Soundtrack Pro. Using that, I was able to isolate some of the hiss from the 5D, and really clean it up.

Also - I forgot when I posted this clip online it had some crazy EQ stuff applied to it that I was messing around with. Here is the latest version.

Any tips/advice for me?

PS - the editing is still in process, so don't knock me down for that! :-)

It seems to me you have overdone the noise reduction. There is significant coloration in the sound. Better to upload a copy of the sound before any processing.
