LP to CD -- removing clicks, pops and crackles

by dvautier / May 25, 2005 1:03 AM PDT

I have been somewhat cautious about using any of the declicker and decrackler filters on my digital copies of LPs, but I have finally looked at some of my second hand records. They are not in very good condition, and clicks and crackles are quite noticeable. I decided to try out the Nero ultra II declicker. I set the click size down to 1 millisecond and the click threshold at 20 % and found the results quite satisfactory even though a few clicks got through. I tried the declicker on some real bad records and the results were not at all good.

I then experimented with the decrackler but it seemed to add too much mud into the music.

Any thoughts?

I use Sound Forge. With it, a 'pencil' tool is provided

which allows you, as a last resort, to draw in a corrected waveform. A lot of work, and a bit expensive, but it will work.

I don't know if the lite version of Sound Forge has this ability.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
