    Default Polishing the sound recorded from audio tapes

    Hello everyone,
    Finally I have decided to record all my audiotapes to mp3.
    My audiocassette recorder is quite good, it an LG thingy, nevertheless probably because some cassettes were recorded bad I hear kind of loud background noise on many of my recorded files. Please here an example clip here: http://moldova.worldcarp.org/forum_f...ise_sample.mp3
    Itís that typical hissing noise that a sound recorded from audiotape has almost all the time.
    I would like to ask what audio editing tool is good to use for fixing such problem, and for general sound processing and enhancement.
    I am on Sound Forge 7 now, but canít seem to find any tool in there that could help me. May be I would need some plugin installed for it. If so, which one will do?
    Any advices appreciated.
    Thanks.
    The beat never fades!

    Will this do?

    All I did was open it in Adobe Audition (v2) and apply the 'remove hiss' filter.

    SoundForge 9 has a pretty good noise remover but other than that there's also Audacity. I prefer to use noise reduction that allows you to take a noise sample and then remove noise based on that. Much better than trying to use a noise gate. Anyway, in Audacity (and SF9) you select the noise portion first then get a sample. Then you select the are you want to run the noise reduce on and run it.

    Hope that makes sense..
