"DePopper Superior Design Made Even Better With X64"
Version: DePopper 220.127.116.11
1. 64-bit version is even faster but 32-bit version is not slow
2. All tools needed to minimize disc scratches, pops and tape hiss
3. Intuitive enough to use with minimal reference to excellent manual
4. Program is compatible with XP and Win7 OS.
Have found no negatives, but then I don't expect problems to be eliminated magically without some effort on my part.
Have been using 32-bit version for four years transcribing LP albums, and cassette tapes up to 50 yrs old to .wav and mp3 files digitized via InPort. DePopper cleans up extraneous noise, BUT you cannot expect miracles. You do need to use trial and error on the settings to DePopper because it seems every album or tape has unique audio characteristics that may require tweaking the settings to minimize noises without affecting the music quality. The digitized .wav file must be in good shape with cleaned disc, good playback equipment before you use DePopper on the file. But DePopper does a superior job compared to any other audio program that I have found for cleaning files and I've tried quite a few. MUCH better than the "descratch" or "dehiss" automatic tools you find as part of other audio programs. I use NERO for file manipulation, but NERO's "denoise" tool doesn't even start to come close to DePopper's capability.
I've found no compatibility problems with other programs; no operational problems of any sort. The same program is available from either Droid Informatica or from DAK Software (if you happen to have purchased it there, as I did). The same activation key works no matter where you purchase the program and updates are easily installed.
