Unfortunately, if there are decaying harmonics behind the "pops" that
you want to remove, the harmonics are going to be affected no matter
what you use to remove the pops.  The only thing I could suggest for you
to try is to use an EQ to EQ out most of the pop while (hopefully)
leaving the wanted sounds relatively unaffected.


Check out the website I've been cobbling together.  It will never be done, but it's a start: 

My blog, with commentary on a variety of things, including audio, mixing, equipment, etc, is at:

Staat heißt das kälteste aller kalten Ungeheuer.  Kalt lügt es auch;
und diese Lüge kriecht aus seinem Munde: 'Ich, der Staat, bin das Volk.'
