Cleaning up very old, bad quality recording


Recommended Posts

So i'm trying to clean up an old recording of a local band from where i grew up. Quality is pretty terrible unfortunately (i think it was ripped from a VHS tape filmed from the crowd). I'm going to attach a link with one of the songs in case anybody wants to see what exactly i'm working with. I've got the iZotope plugins as well if anybody knows any tricks with that. I'm not expecting any miracles but i know some people have had some luck with cleaning up pretty rough recordings. I'm hoping to give it as a gift to my dad so if anyone has any suggestions or ideas on how i can clean it up as much as possible, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks so much!

 

Here's the link :

Just a heads up: I don't think you can do anything significant to that file. It is mono, it is recorded with one pretty distant (cheap?) microphone, there's no noise you could filter, no crackling to tackle, no distortion to de-distort, nothing. Any processing will probably make it worse, even with the impressive Izotope plugins.
