Subject: RE: Tech: Removing hum from old tapes
Some years ago I plugged the output of a valve guitar amp modified for direct recording from the power tubes and transformer,
into a PC running audacity.

Tee amp was turned up to every dial on 10, and the guitar was a reasonable telecaster copy..

The recording sounded as powerful as expected, but so too was the hum from standing in front of a CRT monitor.

The audacity noise reduction was as effective as cnd says,
but it also significantly affected the same frequency range as the hum.

Something to be aware of.

In my case, the result sounded as though the amp had been fitted with a vintage treble booster circuit.. so win.. win... 😎
