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.

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
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:

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
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.
