The restoration procedure - part 1

There are two main points to remember. The first is the need for patience. Much better results are likely to occur from several small restoration steps than from one very large one, especially when reducing noise or crackle and when applying band filtration or equalisation. The second and certainly the most important point is to work with a record in the best possible condition!

The first part of the process is the actual recording and that is covered on this page. The second step is the digital restoration which will be explained on the next page.
