I have recorded a meeting, but there is a lot of unwanted background noise, feedback, static etc... Is there a program that I can use to edit those out?

You may want to try downloading free Audacity software. It works if the recording is in stereo.

To do this in Audacity:

Import your stereo file into Audacity.
Open the track menu (click the arrow next to the track title), and choose “Split Stereo Track.”
Select the lower track (the right channel) by clicking it in the area around the mute/solo buttons.
Choose “Invert” from the Effects menu.
Using the track menus, change each track to “Mono.”
Then go to "Project" and select "Quick mix"

Link for Audacity (and it WORKS GREAT!)

Completely removing unwanted background noise is not possible but can be removed to some extend. Once tried doing it with FlexiMusic Wave Editor, an audio editor. With command like “Noise Reduction” > “pure noise or apply noise filter” can reduce the unwanted background noise.
