Audio Cleaning Lab is a complete solution for cleaning up and repairing damage to audio files on your computer. The software can also be used for assembling and mastering different music sources including from CD Audio, Minidisc and Vinyl recordings.
During the recording process, especially from analogue sources such as Vinyl records, extraneous noise can be added to your audio files. This can be anything from pops and crackles to annoying hiss. Audio Cleaning Lab acts as a set of specialized filters to remove these artifacts and improve the quality of your audio files. Once you have cleaned your audio files, you can even remaster them, enhancing the stereo panorama, altering the frequency spectrum or changing the audio dynamics with compressors. Finally you can create your own audio CDs with the in-built CD burning engine.
The interface looks like a professional mixing studio, with each element having a Hi-Fi equipment look and feel. To adjust the settings of a particular audio mastering, simply click on the button and the relevant interface appears. Each function can be adjusted, or use the power button to turn an effect off completely. A complete editing suite is also built in, which has support for Windows Audio, MP3 and WAV audio files. This means that you can have complete control over your audio files, from trimming them, to setting fade in and fade out points. This is a great tool for anyone who wants to be able to have complete control over their recorded media. --Simon Pickstock

What a fantastic piece of software it is. The simplicity of use is unbelievable, simply plug your HI-FI into your sound card line-in socket and off you go. After spending 5 minutes showing my Brother-in-Law how to use it (He's a complete computer novice), he was re-mastering his records. The sound enhancements work fine, removing the hiss and clicking without any problem.The CD burning process itself is just a couple of clicks, and those of us with a CD Writer prone to failure can burn a CD image to the HDD just in case! Its so good I just ordered a copy for myself.
First, the main screen is just slightly bigger than 800X600, and on my computer, it always appears with its control menu off screen, meaning I have to hit <ALT> <space> to bring up the control menu and maximise the program to bring it back to the centre of the screen.
The main window itself can be a bit of a nightmare, because unlike all other windows programs which use combinations of <cntrl><alt> and <shift> + key for hotkeys, ACL uses just plain keys. Accidentally hitting <space> or 'a' can ruin hours of work.
Oddly, the recording dialogue is a regular windows dialogue, but it doesn't provide much information about your recording. There are two little information panels that tell you either that the sound level is optimal or that it is not, but in fact only really are saying whether the inputs are loud enough to record. On my system, the meters displayed have little to do with the suitabliity of the recording levels -- I set them by trial and error.
The track list is a horrible to work with. Again, because of the non-standard interface, it is easy to click in the wrong place while editing track names, think you are entering a song title, when in fact you are entering a whole series of hotkeys which will wreck hours of tweaking and fine-tuning.
Finally, despite having 'MP3' plastered brightly on the box and in about every second line of the list of program features, you have to pay additionally to purchase an MP3 encoder for the program. I felt tricked!
Also worth noting, the software uses a special anti-piracy lock which creates its own folder in the root directory of your computer and does so without telling you.
As for the quality of the cleaning and processing, it lags a little behind some of the other programs I've tried, but it is better and faster than most. I usually do most of my preliminary processing with ACL, then export the tracks and do the final tweaking and burning with other software.
If this software only had a standard user interface, I think it would be well worth its price.
