I know from conversations with Ricardus some of his uses and they are similar to what I have done in the past as well, for example restoring old analog recordings, etc. Where depending on the source material you have to have a pretty dang minimal artifact experience(Recordings of high dynamic range classical music for example), and also depending on the source material the exact needs may change over time, requiring automation to use effectively. Neither of these applied in my experience with Audacity's tool.High dynamic range classical music was exactly what a friend of mine was working with. First step was extremely-well-cleaned vinyl. He recorded them from a high-end turntable through an Audiophile 2496. Then cleaned in gnome wave cleaner. I've heard the digitized versions, and there is no noise in them ...I have HEARD examples of Gnome Wave Cleaner doing some good work, but I have never been able to get it to yield results like the demos I have heard. It also crashes on large files for me. It wouldn't even load the 45 minute live-music sets that I attempted to use it on.
Hmmm - maybe export shorter parts of the 45-minute sets and test it on them? -- David gnome@xxxxxxxxxxxxx authenticity, honesty, community http://clanjones.org/david/ http://dancing-treefrog.deviantart.com/ _______________________________________________ Linux-audio-user mailing list Linux-audio-user@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx http://lists.linuxaudio.org/listinfo/linux-audio-user
