The subject says it all. Is there a way in ACID Pro to remove turntable rumble from a vinyl recording?


That's a job for plugins. What you'll want to do is run an Equalizer on the track to cut the low-end frequencies, then possibly a Compressor to deal with any volume spikes caused by the rumble. You can try experimenting with the order in which the plugins act to optimize them.

Hello, Welcome

Audio Cleaning Lab

The star of the show is the LP click and crackle recovery, the effectiveness of which is definitely not a matter of opinion. It works well and without unduly affecting high-frequency detail. It’s been possible to do things somewhat like this for a while. Turntable clicks are reasonably detectable as sudden sharp rises in level and techniques for isolating and suppressing them have been around for a while. The filters offered in Cleaning Lab seem well configured with both click and crackle removal and some LP-specific rumble filtering which works particularly nicely on orchestral recordings with quiet passages.

That's awesome. Is Cleanup Lab a feature in Acid Pro? Google Search reveals nothing of use.

No, but you can buy it on Amazon for £12.99 Magix Audio Cleaning Lab. it will improve the reduction in turntable rumble. You could spend time experimenting with acid pro plugins, but Audio Cleaning Lab seems to offer a quicker process.

Thanks everyone for the input! :)

I'll give Magix Audio Cleaning Lab a try for sure. I always thought DAK's DePopper did the best work on clicks and pops, but we're talking about software here so there's always room for improvement. I'll report back....

Does anyone have an idea as to what specific setting I should try for the rumble? Or, should I just go through all the options?

Magix Audio Cleaning Lab is exactly what the doctor ordered. I ran many tests and the results are outstanding! Thanks to everyone that replied, I am grateful to have that nuisance eliminated! :)

You can also get RX Elements for dirt cheap (usually) and there are VST Plug-Ins of its Cleanup Effects available in ACID Pro after installation...
