Thanks, everyone, for all the good advice. I should have mentioned that I can’t use the putting the tape into a regular cassette shell gambit as I have to return the tapes to their owner after I digitize them. I did, however, adjust the azimuth as suggested and it did get noticeably brighter and clearer. But the problems in the tape are largely inherent. The speaker is extremely soft-spoken, the interviewer, a print journalist, placed the recorder too far away from the speaker, and thus the noise floor is brought way up due to the built in auto-leveling feature. So I really have to use RX5 (or some other noise-processing tool) to make it audible. With all that in mind, any RX5 tips that would help bring out the voice in these poor recordings using any of the modules available in the software?
Thanks again for all your help, folks.
