im having an issue with the pop and click in both audacity and goldwave…they dont seem to
get rid of the pops and clicks.is there a different software that i can try and if i like it i can
buy it thatll get rid of pops and clicks?thanks.
Brian Davis ClickRepair; 21 day free trial, $40 if you want to keep it.
I haven’t tried the following, but have heard good things about them:
Diamond Cut Millenium; $59
Magix Audio Cleaning Lab; $50.
thanks…clickrepair is a good software?
IMHO it’s more than good, it’s a little shy of being magic - see this sticky thread: https://forum.audacityteam.org/t/click-pop-removal-clickrepair-software/1933/1
its very good…i just did a 78 in need of cleaning and it cleaned up like a shot…and its so easy to use too.better than gold wave vand audacity…thanks…
lenny(u know me better as coonsanders)
Lenny, as you are processing 78s you might also want to look at Brian Davies’ other piece of software - DeNoise. It costs another $40, but like ClickRepair you do get a 21-day free trial,
It’s not quite as easy to use as CR but it does produce some good results when used carefully.
yea i was just going to ask is his other stuff as good as cr…do u know anything about that?
I evaluated DeNoise and DeNoiseLF a few weeks ago and concluded I would not buy them. Actually, those 2 apps are part of 1 package.
Not because they don’t work—they do, and quite well. But Audacity noise reduction works quite well also. And I found DeNoise not suitable for me in one respect: it’s difficult to grab a small noise sample with the mouse because you cannot zoom into a track like you can in Audacity. That probably isn’t a problem if you have several seconds of noise available, but if you have less than a second, that represents a very small piece of screen width and it’s difficult to see it clearly or grab it.
Your mileage may differ and you can test it for nothing. Several people here have purchased DeNoise and are quite happy with it.
I will say that the batch processing in his applications is excellent—as is the documentation. DeNoise and DeNoise LF are easy to use and don’t have 50 controls. The defaults work pretty well.
Which reminds me:
I downloaded a trial version of Magix Audio Cleaning Lab 16–their most recent package.
Utterly useless. It may “work” very well, but the interface is so confusing and convoluted that I could see it would have a VERY steep learning curve. Dozens of doodads and drop downs with no apparent logical order or intuitiveness. And the documentation was mediocre. I’d avoid it entirely.
thanks 4 the info…ill probably just the declicker 4 now…
i downloaded the denoisier but im not getting how to use it…i looked at the documentation but its a little over my head…has
anyone ever used it and can give me an easier step by step way to do it id appreciate it.
I use Brian Davies’ deNoise. Check this thread for the basic workflow that I use:
i was noodeing around with the declicker and i think i got the hang of it.i put it on automatic instead of manuel and i think it cleaned the tune up ok.i also did notice
that u cant zoom in to get sample noise…what u got to do is when the tune starts
you have to stop it fast and highlight the lead in groove and let it process it from
there.if i did it right it didnt seem to be too hard.that clickrepair is amazing isnt it?
i plan to buy both eventually.thanks…
i tried using the denoiser and found that you have to stop the process when the song starts then
you highlight that part of it and then procede from there.if u dont catch it then you have to sta
-rt the process again…but in order for you to get a noise sample you have to stop it before it ad-
vances to far into the song…i hope u know what im mean…and what is denoiserLF?it came wi-
th the denoiser…
DeNoise LF is explained in the downloadable manual for DeNoise (DNManual.pdf), which you can find on Davies’ site.
It’s for reducing VERY low frequencies. You may or may not need it, but if you want to use it Davies recommends that it be the FIRST step in processing a file.
i sent 40.00 to kagi for a serial number but im a little curious about kagi…are they relyable?i
sent the 40.00 to them and they are supposed to send me the serial number…can i rely on them?
I boughy my copy of CR through Kagi and it worked fine - they sent an email with the registered user name and the required key. No other monies were taken from the account. So yes they seem reliable.
thanks waxy…am awaiting the serial key…all i need is the noise remover tool…thats next.
i got the serial number for click repair but i cant seem to install it into the register part of the software…the email said try pop and click but they are grayed out…is there a way to un gray them or what else can i try?thanks.
