First thing Dan, before you delve into RX, do you know how to play
back/digitise the tapes optimally? This is the first step and often its
importance is not understood or appreciated. For example voice clarity lost
due to a poor playback usually cant be recovered later with RX or similar
tools. It has to be optimised at the playback stage.

Subject: [ARSCLIST] Processing micro cassette audio using iZotope RX5
Oh great hive-mind of ARSC,
I need your wisdom again. I had previously mentioned that I have to
digitally dub some micro cassettes. Today I got a GE model from Ebay and
have started messing around with these interview tapes that were recorded by
a journalist colleague some years ago. I have access to IZotope RX5 and have
started applying its various modules to try and make the audio more
intelligible (my goal is to be able to broadcast excerpts from the results
in a radio documentary). I am using it in stand-alone mode. Do you have any
suggestions for which RX modules to use, in what order, and with what
settings? I have so far experimented with the De-Noise and Corrective EQ
modules, but there are many presets and other variables in each. I’m hardly
a power user so I would appreciate any tricks of the trade any of you would
be willing to impart.
With enormous gratitude,
