Asking for advice on software that has a good different range of different 'filters' or 'effects' that can be applied to reduce noise/pops/clicks on records & cassette tapes. I know that Spin It Again has good filters however I'm curious if anyone knows of similar or better software.

ClickRepair is the perhaps the most widely acclaimed software out there for removing vinyl clicks, pops and crackles. They offer a 21 day, full function trail and it will run you $40 if you like it.

Brian Davies, author of ClickRepair, also makes DeNoise. He claims it works well on tapes but I haven't read any reviews.

Other programs with declick/noise removal:
  • Audacity (freeware)
  • WaveRepair ($30)
  • VinylStudio ($30)
  • Groove Mechanic ($40)
  • iZotope RX (free and paid version)
  • SoundForge (not free)
  • pyro Audio Creator (not free)
  • Goldwave Digital Audio Editor (not free)
  • Golden Records

Unfortunately there is no one "best" automatic declicker out there. Each one has its own pros and cons.

I second the ClickRepair recommendation (I was an early beta tester for Brian, although I admit to not having kept up to date with latest releases).

Another inexpensive declicker worth checking out is Wave Corrector (no relation to my own software).

CoolEdit's declicker was good, so I would assume the one in Audition should be decent, although I've never used Audition.

IMHO, on balance the Sound Forge (now Sony) Noise Reduction 2.0 plug-in gives the best compromise of performance amongst auto-declickers that I have evaluated.

(I disqualify myself from debating Wave Repair, other than to point out that it's primarily a manual tool aimed at really anal users who want to get in there and make very precise adjustments to small sections of waveform. As an automatic declicker, it does not compete with the programs mentioned above).

I was very happy with Audition declick. The noise reduction where you take a profile of the noise and then remove is is very useful, particularly on vinyl.
