    Hi folks,

    I have some very old VHS tapes from 1987 - the clients recorded on the LP setting so the quality is not so great for both audio and video. I've done what I can on the video, but there's a buzz on the audio which I can't seem to eliminate enough to my liking.

    I've used the 31 channel EQ setting in Final Cut (5.1.4 is the version I have) and it's reduced, but I can't seem to get it entirely. Reducing -63 and -4000 to 0 has helped, but it's still there. I can't quite make out if it's electronic humming from the original camcorder used or if it's just b/c the tape is so old and recorded at the wrong speed (meaning lower quality).

    Here is a sample:

    Any suggestions for additional filters would be great.

    Best tool for this would be Waves X-Hum. I believe there is a 10 or 15-day trial.

    Good luck.
