Back in the 70's maybe 80's DAK Industries marketed an SAE Click and Pop eliminator for lp recordings.
I had one which i wish i had just kept to have in light of todays software applications.

Hi, Steve, that was an impressive list of credits!
I used Jim Shelton and Bob Ludwig for my recording of the St. Thomas Church organ...and then left town never to produce Volume II of Organs of NY. Fortunately, I might have partially inspired JAV Records which are doing a wonderful job. We had a devil of the time fitting those 10,000 pipes into that tiny groove. Bob had to work some magic as a compromise between my purist desire and semi-reasonable trackability.
Your comment below about Burwen? I did not recall them making a declicker, but they did make a sliding denoising filter which was underwhelming in most applications.
One thing I've heard a bit about is from 1947 via Philco Radio Time and the Burl Ives Show: the Philco Electronic Scratch Eliminator. I had not realized there were attempts at this--especially at the consumer level--so early. How did it work (that is both a technical question and an aesthetic question)??
