Old audio cassette

Hey there,

I know it's not technically a pro audio thing but my area is mainly making as much noise as possible and I haven't had that much exp mastering.

Basically, my mate just brought round a very hectic rave tape. It's awesome, the only problem is that it's possibly a 5th or maybe 4th gen copy.

Anyone got any useful tips for cleaning up the audio or have done anything like this before? Any online resources?

Cheers

you want to look for some kind of restoration software or plugins. there are de-hissers and such. good ones cost more, junky ones cost less. But they are all kind of expensive unless you do it for a living. not sure if there are really cheap ones worth trying out.

You lose about 7% in every analog generation copy so you are already 35% less than you would have been using the original. NOT GOOD.
