Cleanup Problem

Question

I am trying to cleanup a home recorded audio file. The source was a 78 rpm record. A home recording from 50 years ago. A friend provided the recording as a wma file. It has a lot of noise. So much for background.

 

I am trying to use the Sound Editor to remove the clicks, crackles, etc. Following the Help instructions, I "Selected All," then selected "Clean Up Audio." I set the clean up options to "High."

 

The I selected "Export Clips/Tracks," named the file, etc. and saved it to a location.

 

Now, here's the problem - The resultant file sounds no different than the original.

 

I have gone through all the Help windows and searched multiple times and can't figure out why there is no improvement.

 

Am I missing a step in the process? Any suggestions?

Sound Editor will not do enough clean up. If you got the better EMC 10, that may have come with Bias Sound Soap which will do a much better job. (I'm not sure it was included with EMC 10; it may have been EMC 9 and Creator 2009). No free trial with that if you don't have it though.

 

Dart has a good product. I prefer to use Gold Wave. It seems to work the best but it is not a one button clean up. They have a very liberal trial policy. I would download the trial and try that; especially if you are just doing the one LP.
