Getting rid of a repeating 'crick' noise
« on: June 27, 2019, 01:36:04 pm »
The first track has this noise on one channel every revolution for about 5-8 minutes (so 150+ of them), each cricks section lasts around 0.25s. It's immune to automatic click removal at anything less than destructive levels, so I've been selecting the bit with the cricks and re-running click removal on the selection at Max, 6 or even turbo with little or no percussion protection.

It does a good job. But. It's tedious and slow, even using ) to go to the next revolution. Is there an alternative method or some way to automate it?

FWIW I've cleaned the LP *twice* on a Moth RCM, so, short of splashing out on an ultrasonic cleaner, whatever gunge is on the LP is there to stay.

It's probably some kind of scuff, and therefore immune to (physical) cleaning.

The best you can do is to use ')' and then repair the section manually, either as you are doing now or perhaps by using Patch.  Sorry I don't have better news for you.
