Subject: RE: Tech: Removing hum from old tapes
The Audacity method you described will never work miracles, but can be reasonably successful, depend a lot on the exact section you use for "teaching". Theoretically, quiet sections make best candidates, but since these are never "completely" quiet anyway, some experimenting may yield surprising results. The gap may have been the wrong choice because part of the hum is due to the actual recording.
