For overall cleanup and burning CDs, the best package I've found is
the consumer "Audio Cleaning Lab" from Magix in Germany. It's about
$30-40 US. I am amazed at how much of the high-end stuff that is in
Samplitude and the Algorithmix plug-ins exists in ACL.
It's available as a download version or a box version.
If you're going to do the transfer, get as good a cassette recorder
as you can, keep it clean, and hook it up to a reasonable sound card.
There are some under-$100 USB "sound cards" that might be acceptable,
certainly better than what comes on most PCs and especially better
than what is on some laptops.
