Re: Strange spectral view

Do you have any idea if this is video sourced? A couple of CDR shows I have that are sourced from VHS have a deafening squeal on which I presume is from tape head friction or something similar. As such, when I've backed them up to lossless, I've taken time just to completely filter out the narrow frequency concerned. Sure, the shows aren't in their pure form any more, but at least I can bear to listen to them rather than giving up in pain part way through! I personally wouldn't distribute anything that'd been toyed with in this way, but someone else may have and it would cause such a spectral view.

Probably unlikely but at least possible I'd say.
