Introducing ClickFix

ClickFix for Adobe Audition is a click and pop filter plug-in, specifically designed for Adobe System's Adobe Audition through version 3.0, and Syntrillium's Cool Edit 2000 and Cool Edit Pro.

ClickFix is ideal for cleaning up vinyl LP recordings before transferring them to CDs. ClickFix does a great job removing clicks and pops from 45s and 78s and can also remove static from AM and FM broadcasts.

Adobe Audition and Cool Edit Pro users:  Why use ClickFix when Adobe Audition includes a Click/Pop Eliminator? Because ClickFix is fast -- typically more than ten times faster than the declicker included with Adobe Audition, and gives the same or superior results. Plus, it does this without adding unwanted audio artifacts.

Cool Edit 2000 users:  Cool Edit 2000 lacks a built-in tool to remove clicks and pops. ClickFix fills that need perfectly.

The ClickFix for Adobe Audition plug-in is available in two versions. Each version works with Adobe Audition, Cool Edit 2000, and Cool Edit Pro:

  • ClickFix Free provides basic click removal features

  • ClickFix (full version) includes additional features to make click removal even easier and more effective

I wanted to write again to thank you for your miraculous ClickFix plugin.

I am a registered user and have been transferring LPs right and left in the past couple of months. Before, I had to use two or three different programs, and then often do manual editing and pasting to remove commonplace vinyl defects.

ClickFix stopped all that trouble. I seldom have to edit more than one bad spot per album, if that. Usually I run the Auto, normal setting: this is virtually the ONLY instance I can think of in which the default setting in a piece of software actually WORKS. Usually the default is simply awful: turned way up to 'make a noticeable difference', in order to impress the first time user that the software is worth getting, I suspect.

I have also run into noise and distortion modulation effects on all other declickers. Yours does not seem to do that, ever. It just works. It does not add a trace of distortion and grit to woodwinds, or piano transients.

The other day I transferred a Genesis LP of an obscure piano concerto by Goetz, and as it was playing, thought: "doesn't this disk sound AWFUL? I hate LPs..." But the playback of the transfer after one pass with my default setting of ClickFix changed all that; it's barely possible now to tell that it WAS an LP.

I might add that you probably cannot find a more discriminating sound editor in the amateur field than me. I spent many years producing classical radio shows (recorded more than 3500 hours of programs onto digital tape for syndication in 17 American markets) and owned over 13,000 LPs. I also produced some classical recordings for MHS, eons ago. I recorded the SF Symphony for its national broadcasts. So I am a retired *professional* who now only makes CD transfers for personal use. I think that the results I am getting are definitely better than many of the CDs that I purchase, using old vinyl and shellac disk sources.
