Iím putting this back on the list for possibly helping others:

OOPS! missed it by one, alphabetically:
<https://www.dropbox.com/s/t8rv0lacty8pwcd/Gibson%20Micro%20Cassette%20Test%20RX6.wav?dl=0>

Select a piece of the noise between words. Tell Spectral Denoise to ďLearnĒ that noise. Then hit retirn to select the wholefile, and hit process. I did this twice for more reduction. Then did the same thing using RX6 voice denoise, which is a refinement only in 6. I almost always use the presets, rarely need to modify them, except I set the quality slider to BEST always.

One nice thig is that though this recording is poor, it doenít pump like a lot of things you hear on radio newsÖ the background noise is pretty steady.

It is really basic, but then Iíve been using RX since V.1. One cool thing about RX is when you upgrade, you donít lose the previous versions, so that are all still available to me.

I too am a public radio engineer/producer, and use RX on almost all productions, even studio interviews, to reduce room noise. We have lots of old programsonly on cassette, and many have actualities recorded in thefield that need thiskind of treatment. Practice makes it easier!

And, lastly, I donít really understand what you mean by ďtwo passes.Ē Iím not really an engineer, Iím a radio producer who knows just enough about various sound processing tools to do my day-to-day job. And Iíve never used RX until now. I had previously used SoundSoap, but have been told RX is much better.

Iím not sure how to do that in a listserv, so I have uploaded a raw, unprocessed sample to Google Drive here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1NuYkyKK6yNXzDRtOA_ZUHuYzf6VCAwuK <https://drive.google.com/open?id=1NuYkyKK6yNXzDRtOA_ZUHuYzf6VCAwuK>. Anything else you think I should try, hearing the file and knowing what I have already tried?
