I concur with you re: Diamond Cut--I have stopped upgrading at
version 6 (and I have the Live/Forensics version of that)...and Brian
Davies's awesome suite.
My major software application is Samplitude Pro - I'm still on
version 10.22 and have not upgraded to version 11 yet. There is a
restoration suite that is available for an extra charge and the
version 10 restoration suite de-clicker is the best I've used so far,
but (a) I don't do records professionally and (b) I do mostly vinyl.
However, the de-click, de-crackle is useful on things in addition to
records, and I've used it, along with Brian Davies's programs and
Algorithmix Noise Free Pro to clean up a wide variety of problematic
recordings. The Samplitude FFT filter can be a very powerful cleanup
tool, as can the spectral filtering.
