I’ve been trying to “clean” an old vinyl records I have and I’ve been using two of the Audacity tools: Noise reduction and Click/Pop restoration.
Noise reduction works so fine with the general background (stylus/groove friction) noise.
At the other hand, Click/Pop restoration doesn’t work so fine. If we use so high sensitivity parameters, we get a very distorted final audio signal (specially at left and right stereo image sides). If we use so low sensitivity parameters, the clicks and pops survive the “restoration process” without any audible change. It is so hard to find a middle right point, if we find one!!!
So… I wonder if someone could improve that tool (even I know it seems to be a very hard computing issue, because I’ve used Adobe Audition and other expensive software and this is “the” weaky point).
Any idea will be welcome.
