Someone on the iPod sub-forum recommended that I post my question here as well. I have about 30 compact cassettes of music that I compiled from my long gone LP collection that I would like to convert and transfer to my HD. Fortunately I still have an excellent player to play them with, but that still leaves the problem of tape hiss. Any recommendations for software that will remove as much tape hiss as possible but without degrading the sound? The only ones that I'm aware of is Sound Soap, Toast's Spin Doctor (I'm not sure if it's still available or works with ML 10.8.3), and recommended from the iPod forum is Audacity - surely there's got to be more and better options out there than these? Or have they stopped upgrading this software because everyone assumes that there no more analogue tapes to be transferred? Thanks in advance for your help.
