Gale, Thank you for your reply. Thought I added samples??? Must have had another senior moment… anyway here’s the thrum and the thrum + vocal. These are both raw. I have not done any filtering on either of these samples.
I must say I’m new to Audacity when it comes to cassette to CD transfer. I mostly do direct to CD recording and those seldom need filtering or any post production work.
One thing should be mentioned and that is these are cassettes made from reel-to-reel masters created in 1950/51. The cassettes themselves are probably 15-20 years old. I’m trying to preserve as much as I can and cleanup enough of the garbage to make them listenable. I’m not expecting perfect recovery. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
