I'm kind of a sound engineer but occasionally declick some old recording of mine and I don't want to spend too much time on it.Until recently I hadn't found any automatic plugin or app and was unclicking manually in ProTools, only when I had one or two big clicks in a file, leaving the more damaged recordings as they were...I'm really impressed by ClickRepair!I've used the Default LP settings and it's quite perfect.I've tried Default Brass on a quiet recording of strings were the Default LP gave me the impression of "flanging" a bit but it sounded a bit more dull so I came back to Default LP as the original recording had already a bit of that "flanging".All this being very subjective, I'll recommend ClickRepair without a doubt! :-)
Was just using CR after a few months of not. Sheesh! It is so very good at what it does. Still impressed after over 3 years. Great developer. Great manual that gets you as geeky as you're inclined. Or you can stick with the defaults and never look back.
If you restore vinyl, this is a must have tool. I've been using it for 5 years and I can't live without it.
Version 3.6 (build 44a) released November 12, 2011: • Drag and Drop interface for single file processing (see new manual, p10). • More robust handling of unacceptable files. • Changes to File Dialog workaround introduced in version 3.4.2 (Mac only). • Requests users to print registration information. • Minor bug fixes.
Thanks for pointing out the update. I've added the newest version to our listing :)
I'm just a music lover and i'm using this software in the most simple way. It's great ! Love it and the results are awesome !Not a dime waisted !
In more than ten years in vinyl restoration as a hobbyist I never got results such ones achieved with ClickRepair and DeNoise.Excellent pair. I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again.Thank you Mr. Davis
I use it for professional work as well as for myself & I concur with Karloscka, I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again either!
ClickRepair is the ace and deuce of noise removal software for the home vinyl transfer enthusiast. Anyone wishing to digitize LP recordings that would otherwise have no hope of being issued on CD need look no further than this excellent app.Many thanks, Mr. Davies.
Wanted to try this program. Lots of great reviews. Unfortunately, the very first mp3 I tried to open came up with errors about incorrect header. Strange, because it's worked on every program I've opened it in. Not sure if this will save me any time if I have to convert it with another program before I can open it with this one.
Read the manual. This program is great at what it does. What it doesn't do is process MP3s or other compressed file formats. From the manual; "The files must be uncompressed, mono or stereo, in 16, 24, or 32-bit “AIFF” or “WAVE” format."
While some purists insist that ClickRepair somehow alters the audio, it actually significantly improves the sound - especially with older, scratchy recordings. They end up sounding closer to a CD; given that fact that most users set up their audio to 320kbs - which works just fine with an iPod or audio player - ClickRepair is an important tool.
I've been using this program for several years. It is the Mercedes of click and pop removal. I imagine it must be difficult to add new features to something that's practically perfect.
Vinyl purists will have a stroke over applications such as this because it alters the original audio. That's basically hypocritical. In order to define "original audio", you have to take into consideration, the quality of the turntable, needle, audio card, cables and even the original pressing of the vinyl which in many instances was done in a rush with a poor quality master tape and materials.
The bottom line is that I don't want to hear clicks and pops in my music. It's distracting and there's no place for it in the digital age.
