LP Crackle Removal

Question

I am converting Pink Floyd "Wish You Were Here" LP to Digital. It is a quiet LP but has some distinct individual large crackles.

Can i select the crackle only and delete rather than selecting a time range?

Can i knock off the peak of the individual crackle so it is not so loud?

The audio editor in the Creator 2009 and earlier are not full pro type video editors, so if I might suggest and alternative. Download and try GoldWave. There is a lenient free trial and it has many more capabilities.

 

The audio editor in the Creator type products are great for mild cleaning but not for the crackle that you describe. In a couple of versions of Creator (Pro), Roxio included a copy of Sound Soap. That works great and is easy to do but the higher cost stops me from recommending that unless you are going to do a lot of audio clean up from dozens of LP and tapes. If you plan to do that, you might consider the stand alone version of Sound Soap (ca $130)

Quite a few methods for restoring audio can be found at The Digital FAQ, both on the guide site and in the forums. Check out:

- http://www.digitalfaq.com/guides/video/index-restore.htm

 

Removing crackling is relatively easy in software like Audacity, Goldwave and SoundForge. Check those links for more help.

It generally takes full audio editors for this kind of task.

 

Audacity is free, so I'd try that before Goldwave.

I've never tried Audacity (and probably should, if it's free), but I do use Goldwave. You can zoom in on a specific wave and delete it, or (my preference) re-draw it. In many cases, if you draw something similar to what's around it, you can make it completely unnoticeable.
