Thanks for the replies.

I will play with the comp/expand filter, on first try I did not get it though...

After a few tries and varied experimentation, you'll like the results of playing with the Audio Compress/Expand Filter -- as long as you remember to drag the filter into the timeline so it's in the track directly beneath the audio track you wish to affect -- or alternatively, you could simply have it in the same track as the audio you wish to affect, but have the VST audio filter on top of the audio portion you wish to effect.

In the way of experimentation with this, you might:
1. set the Compress/Expand filter to a particular value --
2. CTRL+Drag off another copy of the adjusted Comp/Expand Filter
3. Align it with the previous filter, so as to intensify the magnitude of its effect, if I wasn't satisfied with the result the first go-round.

'Worked like a charm.

I've even used the Remove Noise ("De-Noise") audio VST filter, by
1. having short little bits of the filter adjusted rather agressively, then
2. inserting the vilter into the timeline track just beneath an audio track's "plosives" (i.e., popping "P's" and "T's"), and if necessary,
3. experiment with increasing or decreasing the strength of the effect, and/or
4. ALT+Dragging a copy of that adjusted filter, and placing it so it doubly intensifies its effect on the audio to be rescued.
5. in a track immediately below that, I'd insert a piece of "wild sound" (i.e., "room noise", from a clean area of the audio track, where no one was speaking at the mic), to mask where the VST audio filter "edit" was made.
6. Adjust fade-in and fade-out points for *quick* transition into and out of these elements you've placed on the to clean up the sound of the resultant audio.
