View Full Version : Integrating vinyl into a Squeeze / Slim setup?

Ya know, I have to say, I have used CoolEdit 2000 in the past for cleaning
up vinyl recordings (I happen to own CoolEdit2K's pop-and-scratch-removal
plug-in). Seems to work just dandy.

On a possibly related topic (ahem), is it unethical (or indeed even illegal)
to share software, when the company that made it no longer exists, and the
software is no longer sold nor supported? Seriously. Just wondering.

Those are part of the warmth beauty of vinyl and their inherent
superiority over CD. *cough*cough*

Seriously, though, the only really good way I know to edit those out
is doing is manually, and that's not perfect either.

But this emphasizes the advantage of minimizing wear and tear, IMHO.

P.S. The first sentence is meant to be taken with good humor. I'm
not trying to start a vinyl/analogue-tube, etc. vs. digital vs.
my-technology-is-better-than-yours flame war.

Unless the software has been released somehow it's illegal, even if
the company is out of business.

If you can find the copyright holder, you might get them to release
the software. This was what was done with the Vectrex (a late 1980's
vector scan video game machine) The Vectrex copyright owners were
very receptive to supporting the fan base. And the cool folks at
Panic released Audion recently. It can't hurt to ask.
