I've noticed that over a year has passed since the last post on this thread. Am wondering if Drunken Mozart has been able to clean up any more episodes, or has he fled the scene entirely?

Once I'm digging up old threads Paul, don't suppose Drunken ever left a guide on how to clean up the audio? I'de be happy to take a shot at some of them.

Well, he was using a trial verion of some program for all of the ones he did I think -- though he indicated he had some other program that could also do it but not as well. Unfortunately I'm not even sure if he ever told me what program it was, and if he did I can't find it so far in a brief email archology expeditiion.

All I know is that when I tried an audio editor once (I don't remember what one it was), all I could do was get rid of pops and static by making is sound like someone had gagged Ernest Chappell and he was making muffled sounds though that. I thus concluded that I should leave that sort of thing to other people. (Besides, I'm very sound-tolerant. The low sound quality of QP never bothers me as long as I can make out the words, and for the spots where I can't I don't think any audio tool could help.)

i was able to clean up #6 using cool edit

there is a noise reduction feature in the program. you highlight an area of noise on the mp3 (save it as a noise profile) and the program will remove it from the larger file.

the audio is still poor (the low bitrate doesn't help) but it is an improvement.

The worst audio files are as bad as they are b/c someone encoded 44khz files at 32kbps... any audio techies here know what that means, and for those hwo don't, just imagine listening to the London Symphone Orchestra while Lou Albano is hodling your head under water...

Who has the original tapes for Quiet, Please? That's what we need to find if htere are ever going to be really frash encodes out there... there is very little that can truly be done, asise from turning the treble down and the vocal harmonics up, to imrpove a lousy encode - and you can never get rid of the 'bubbles' no matter what you do.
