Re: [RedHotJazz] clean sound of 78s
- I'll have to look at the Sound Forge plugin. I agree about the DC6 click
removal. In three years of using the program I've never figured out a
way to get the results I want. I usually end up removing the big ones
manually with the interpolation feature and relying on the Continuous
Noise Filter for the rest.

When that time comes Barrelhouse Solly will be there for you. He cares.
