I have CoolEdit 2K which I use basically as a super tape recorder. I
missed out on getting the studio plug-in that has the invaluable
de-clicker feature. Other than upgrading to Adobe audtition, what are my
other options for getting a de-clicker for my .wav files? Is there a
separate program I can use?
Well, there is ClickFix at :
and also :
And many other links on my web page:
The clickfix looks like the answer to my prayers. Thank you!
But first take a clean recording and check the number of "clicks"
Put some money into a quality cartridge, my personal favourite is
currentlyl the Ortofon X5MC.
You should also try to locate a test record, so that you can determine
the actual frequency response of the actual playback chain. (Perhaps
Scott Dorsey could be persuaded to make one ... it would be immensely
useful to many people.)
Mostly I just remove the large clicks with the fix single click
functionality of the click remover used.
Back in the old days the cartridge was suspect or the loudspeakers were
if clicks and record noise were a distraction by being poorly
reproduced, now you can add AD conversion quality to that list.
Using the highest avaiable sampling frequency in the initial conversion
and then downsampling may or may not be a superior strategy, depending
on the quality of the AD and the downsampling.
I do not know this for a fact, but I tend to assume that extended treble
response makes it easier for a decklicker to do its job well if
automated mode is requried.
Magix Audio Cleaning Lab is 29.99 and works extremely well
