A few years ago my dad converted a bunch of reel to reel's of his old country rock cover band over to .wav
I'm thinking about maybe getting someone to restore the audio over these tracks for xmas so he can enjoy the music a little more. Now, I know a little about restoration.. I know that nothing can ever be RESTORED 100 percent, but that things can only be made better. Like for plugins that draw EQ curves based off of hiss and hum, then give you control over the volume.. you still have to settle for some hiss and hum or else you lose the clarity and some bass... so yeah, I do understand that these can't be fixed a whole hell of a lot... but my question is is it even worth it to send these in and be restored?
Can these tracks even be worked with enough to make the money spent worth it? I mean, I'm assuming they are going to remove hiss and hum... make some of it shine since its really dull, then limit it and bring up the volume... but is this even worth it with the quality I'm working with here? I just figured I'd ask you folk what you think before I go spending money only to find out they couldn't do really anything. https://dl.dropbox.com/u/5129928/01%...B.%20Goode.mp3
