Ben-Set your original sampling rate to 24/96,000 or whatever max you can
transfer. For Dart Pro - it doesn't accept 24 bit and will corrupt the file.
I like Dart because of the filter builder, and you can also change speed by
adjusting sample rate.
I do a minimal de-hum first for 60 hz as a handshake with the program.
I have established safe settings for decrackle - At 96,000/16 I can set
decrackle to 80. Usual max at 44,100/16 is 30 although for very dirty
trumpet an some more complex voices 20 is suggested.
I hate getting to the hot trumpet solo at the end and found that decrackle
has introduced distortion. Running lower settings multiple times lets you
clean up a record effectively with less intervention. I have a filter set at
80 to run 5 times before I look to see what clicks are still left.
Dartpro MT has boosted speed fro decrackle and I just run repeatedly until
the numbers are below 5,000 .
I don't even listen to the record until I have done the next steps - which
are resampling to 22050 and then adjusting sample rate to 51598 for 78 rpm.
I then resample to 44,100/16
See table below for other speeds.
33 / 22050 = 75 / 49500
33 / 22050 = 76.6/50633
33 / 22050 = 78 / 51598
33 / 22050 = 80 / 52880
If I am doing fast dub with the VRII this next table shows settings
Record at 78 and adjust to 75 rpm
78 / 22050 = 75 / 21201 x2 = 42402 78 / 96,000 = 75 / x
Record at 78 and adjust to 76.6
78 / 22050 = 76.6 / 21654 X2 = 43308
Record at 78 and adjust to 80 rpm
78/44100 = 80/45230
Edison / Columbia /
78 / 22050 = 80 / 22615 78/44100=80/45230
I use declick to reduce hiss - which on a 78 is a combination of a lot of
little clicks sounding as hiss. Discretion with this filter is important as
overuse will muddy the sound.
Your program bay use a different technique to correct the speed.
hope this makes sense - regards - Mickey
