Is there way to fix "wobbly" sound of old radio?

Post by alex20850 »

I am a big fan of the Gunsmoke radio shows. Some of them sound like their player was losing power with tone and speed going down and back up to normal.
I can submit an example to show what I mean.
Is there anything I can do through GoldWave?
Thanks,
Alex

Goldwave can't fix wow and flutter. You'd have to buy another, much more expensive, program to do the job. I think the latest version of Izotope RX has a feature that allows the user to fix wow and flutter.

Incidentally, when in doubt, look in the manual. If it ain't in the manual, it ain't in Goldwave.
I don't want to read the manual either, but it isn't my problem, is it?

Wow & flutter correction isn't mainstream & affordable yet. Capstan is $200 USD to rent for 5 days or $4500 to buy! It's a recently added feature to Izotope RX Advanced ($1000).

The Flanger effect in GoldWave could be used to correct that problem if it is exactly periodic. However it would take a lot of trial-and-error to get the settings correct. The Doppler effect is another option, but that would be even more time consuming to set up.
