Re: An urgent message about digital noise reduction

I'm with PencilGeek on this one. Izotope Rx is the way to go when doing NR. It it the most sophisticated of the easy to find (read: free if you know how) tools and does the least damage to the original recording while removing, in some cases, a huge amount of unwanted noise.

I am one of the team that restored the Pink Floyd Zabriskie Point music. Listen to the versions of Oenone and Rain In The Country on the MQR release, then compare those to all previous releases. You will see that digital NR can be done right
To enforce copyright laws is to prevent people from making peaceful use of the information they possess. If one has acquired the information legitimately it is a violation of freedom of speech to prevent one from using it, reproducing it, trading it. Information is a universal, existing in other people's minds and other people's property, and over these the originator has no legitimate sovereignty. Copyright laws extort from the public a reward enormously in excess of the labor measure of an entertainers' services, making them, in essence, discriminatory against anyone paid a single time for a job. The only way there will ever be balance is when we are either all paid ad infinitum for work we did years ago, or when they are not. Until then I will fight for the freedom of information by challenging copyright law every chance I get. Join the Pirate Party and help make a difference.
