Version: 0.21-07GWC is an application to do digital audio restoration on wavfile data, i.e. remove hisses and clicks. It features click repair using least squares autoregressive interpolation, and is based on the FFTW library. This is still beta code, so back up your data files first.
Operating System: Linux
It is resulting of never wanting to boot to MS windows again. The only reason I had left was because I have this wonderful software to record digital audio, and the dehiss and declick using some very cool software (COOLEDIT 2000) and (Declick by M. Paar), to do the audio restoration.
I checked out some of the ongoing projects in linux, and either they crashed a lot or, didn't do what I needed, so I started this effort out of selfishness and also as a mechanism to learn the GNOME API for GUI programming . A lot of the code shows the efforts of that learning curve, and could certainly be cleaned up, but the I am personally pleased with the overall design. The goals are simple -- denoise, dehiss and amplify audio files. With the use of libsndfile, you can now do this on a multitude of audio formats, wav, au, aiff, ...
For those of you interested, I started working up a presentation describing the technical aspects of the audio restoration methods used in GWC.
Untar the source tarball (tar -xvzf )
Enter the directory created.
Run "make install".
"gwc" is the program file. All you have to do is run it.
