farting duck noise from the avalung!

Being the consummate preparation professional that I am I tested out the avalung today. Not under 6 foot of snow however! The valve/filter that sits on the shoulder strap emits a farting or duck like noise when inhaling and exhaling. The noise does go away if you inhale and exhale hard, but this is counter productive to breathing rhythmically and remaining calm! :)

Is my valve defective? I don't wont to end up pushing CO2 in front of me when I' counting on this baby pushing it away from me :(
