Nynia Tape Restoration. (22) Tape Restoration. 30 Jul 00

Hi folks. In the late 70's early 80's my father made around 50 recordings of guests at Dumfries Folksong Club. These included; Martin Carthy, Dick Gaughan, Boys Of The Lough, Roaring Jelly, Bob Fox & Stu Luckley, Bob Zentz etc. etc. etc. Not to mention the resident floor singers. I was home recently and listened to a few and the quality was variable, some pretty so-so, some very good considering that they're twenty-odd years old. I'd dearly like to get them onto CD or MD so that the don't degrade any further, which isn't really a problem as I've a CD burner on my computer. Ideally what I'd like to be able to do is to clean up the sound a little. Does anyone have any suggestions as to which is the best method, any software advice etc. I hasten to add that this is purely for my own, and my fathers enjoyment. Thanks in advance for you suggestions, Nynia.
