I was wondering if someone could help me identify these sounds in the quiet passages of these files. It sounds to me like a chirping, or perhaps a squeaking, and is present and noticeable in nearly every quiet passage.

The first sample is from the start of a song that is operatic and quiet. The second sample is the ending of the same song. I've included it, as it is much closer to the peak of the track, to give a sense of how audible these sounds are.

My skill in iZotope RX2 is limited and I can't seem to figure out how to remove the sounds altogether.

Regarding my last post: I was confusing anti-skating with cartridge downforce adjustment.

In any case I have it correctly set according to the manual's specifications, though for a short time I had it on the loop on the wrong notch. (I used a can of compressed air on something a while back and it blew off.) This isn't the case with this recording.

However I did find one needledrop I did that I'm quite pleased with that doesn't exhibit these noises. In fact the condition of the vinyl was so good that I didn't even treat it hardly at all in post-processing. It *could be* that this was recorded when the anti-skating weight was set to the wrong notch.
