Ken Burns interview redux

An experiment in audio restoration, at Jon Udell’s suggestion. I finished taking out the mechanical clicks (this was a manual process, oy) and then turned my efforts to ameliorating the high-pitched hum in the background. Working in Sound Forge, I ended up with a parametric EQ notch of -6.5 db and a bandwidth (or “Q”) of 2.5 at 973 Hz. It’s really a trial-and-error process for me, but I think the gains outweigh the losses. Compare this version with the version I posted first, and keep the one you like best. 🙂

(Both versions benefited greatly from the Levelator, by the way.)
