Hello ARSC,

I'm new to the list, so please excuse me if this request is out of line.

I'll get right to the crux: I'm working on a digital transfer from a 40
year old 1/2" master audio tape. The recording is unaccompanied singing,
and in the transfer I've noticed a very faint bleed-through / pre-echo that
peaks at about -36 dB. The bleed-through is only minimally noticeable in
the silence before or after a very loud note, but due to the dynamic nature
of the recording, I've had trouble making a gate work and sound natural.

So my question is, how could I correct or minimize this problem without
affecting the original recording, if at all? I'm hoping there are some
tricks out there I'm not familiar with.

Thanks in advance for any and all help!
