Hi! My brother loaned me a really old LP that has one very quiet track on it that is beautiful, but is marred by numerous loud pops. So I hunted around on line and ordered a supposedly VG+ used copy of the same LP.
But I was so disappointed when I played it, because it was just as noisy as my brother’s copy.
So, I came up with the off-the-wall idea:
If I could figure out how to hook up my turntable to my computer, I could copy both LPs to WAV, or FLAC or MP3 files.
It seems reasonable to assume that the pops on the two LPs would occur in different places, right?
So, if there were a software program that could compare the two recordings and then remove any differences between the recordings to produce a third “clean” composite recording, I would end up with something close to a pristine copy of those two beat-up old LPs, wouldn’t I?
So, is this something that can actually be done?
