Asking for advice on software that has a good different range of different 'filters' or 'effects' that can be applied to reduce noise/pops/clicks on records & cassette tapes. I know that Spin It Again has good filters however I'm curious if anyone knows of similar or better software.
ClickRepair is the perhaps the most widely acclaimed software out there for removing vinyl clicks, pops and crackles. They offer a 21 day, full function trail and it will run you $40 if you like it.
Has somebody tried "declick"?[blockquote]http://home.snafu.de/wahlm/dl8hbs/declick.html[/blockquote]
Also, If I can add, would it be better quality to record cassette tape audio with the tape type filter selected on the tape deck itself (normal, metal, CRO2) or to record it with no analog filter and do it digitally afterward.
The main purpose of declick is the removal of digital clicks in the input material. It is intended for the automatic removal of clicks produced by scratched CDs or poorly working CD grabbers, for example when using an IDE CD-ROM. It is not designed to remove analogue clicks as from scratched LPs.
CoolEdit's declicker was good, so I would assume the one in Audition should be decent, although I've never used Audition.
