No. There are many thousands of pops and clicks on each recording. Some skips can not be detected, avoided or fixed. When we restore a record we have to decide how severe the pops and clicks are, and how much correction to apply to the music. On a recording that is otherwise good, except for a few pops, we prefer to apply less correction in order to preserve the liveliness of the music. This is explained on our Web site on our Noise Reduction Philosophy page.
- The budget for the restoration, at the consumer price level, is about $15 (see our published prices, for the current “transfer only” and “sound restoration” prices). “Hand removal” of pops and clicks is not possible at this price level. Fixing skips is not possible at this price level. If you know that certain songs/tracks require extra restoration work, please select additional “Individual Restoration Units”.
- We also offer professional restoration services. Please contact us with details about your project.
