I am trying to rip old cassette recordings of my father’s autobiography to my computer. The cassettes are probably 20 years or more old, recorded on a small personal recording device. I think that due to the age of the cassette as well as starting and stopping the tape during recording, I’m getting voice pitch changes particularly on the second side. On some of the cassettes the change is pretty dramatic. I don’t have any pitch control on the cassette player I’m recording from. I’m very limited on experience with audio software in general.
Is there a way to even out the pitch across the entire recording? I tried playing with various settings as I was ripping the cassette but without luck. I’ve played with the pitch control while playing the WAV file after ripping and I can get some limited positive results.
Thanks for any suggestions.
