Its title says it all: the Magix Audio Cleaning Lab 3 Deluxe soft-and-hardware package is a comprehensive toolkit for cleaning, polishing and "remastering" those shop-worn old LP, CD or MP3 tracks. Simply transfer the tracks from your sound system (or the Internet) to your computer, get to work with your sonic Windowlene, then burn the freshly cleaned tracks on to brand new CDs. To this end the Cleaning Lab provides jack plugs and leads for the sound system/computer interface: so all you need to do is select the files, switch on, sit back and watch your computer fill up.
Once the tracks are in your hard drive, use the on-disk at-home studio console to rid the tracks of crackle, buzz, hiss, warp, yowl, judder, cackle and ka-dunk, and all that other annoying sonic debris that seems to accumulate on even the most carefully recorded music. At this juncture you can also fade out the vocals for a karaoke effect, cross-cut to give a stereo gloss or export the files back to the computer so as to impress your e-mail mates. You can even add your own touches, like a bit of reverb or a touch of echo, just in case that precious recording of Johnny Rotten singing "God Save the Queen" live in Walsall in 1978 doesn't sound offensively weird enough. Finally, when all that's done, you can create pristine new compilation CDs by burning on those freshly cleaned and varnished tracks. It is a must for audio "cleaning ladies" of all ages. --Sean Thomas

I thought it was hopeless, until I came across the unlikely sounding Audio Cleaning Lab 3 Deluxe from MAGIX. Although mainly intended for getting LPs etc onto CD (thus the name), it does all of the above in the simplest way possible. Audio can be recorded directly, CD Audio can be ripped, or WAV/MP3/WMA files imported. Tracks can be arranged; start/end points moved; fade in/outs set; overlaps made with automatic cross fades, or arranged on two adjacent tracks for full control of relative fades; tracks can be split/deleted/copied; track markers set and moved - all graphically and non-destructively. Zoom from full CD project down to individual wavecycles (so you can line up the beats of segued tracks with your eyes and ears!). Tracks can have duration or pitch altered (within reason). Oh yes, it's also excellent at cleaning up scratched records, hissy tapes etc (thus the name!). As well as various noise reduction options, it can apply Stereo widening (hmmm), EQ/Brightening, a multiband compressor and any DirectX plugins you may have plus VST plugins (via VST-DX Adapter light). These can be applied to the entire project or individual tracks - non-destructively in real time.Read more ›
I've burnt some 20 or more CDs now and I'm delighted with the results. The recording process and cleaning operations are very simple. The only note of caution I would add is: take care about the recording level: the recommended level is probably too high. In orchestral tuttis the recorded CD can give an unpleasant distortion, especially with massed violins. This disappears if the in-line level is set to just go into the 'yellow band' at the loudest point. I would also add that it is best to set your own track markers in classical pieces: there are just too many quiet points where the automatic track marker kicks in by mistake!
With these caveats in mind it's possible to get quite startling quality. I'm especially pleased with the chamber music recordings where the dynamic range and detail doesn't put so much stress on the recerding process.
Go out and buy it!
I hope that record labels take the trouble to use similar software to clean up their back catalogues.
It really does automatically recognise and get rid of nasty scratches on records with ease (I was sceptical, but the anti-click widget really does work well). If you have been brought up believing that each additional recording will inevitably lead to a certain increase in noise and drop in quality, prepare to be amazed. Once you’ve burned them onto CD, they will have less noise and clicks and bumps than the records you made them from.
The CD cover making thingamabob is good too, with one fault: it doesn’t sodding well print. Quite a major drawback if you are trying to make CD covers.
