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 does not work with Audition CS5.5 or later.
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 introducing 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:
I thought you might care to know that I am extremely happy with your ClickFix product.
Currently I am working on a CD restoration of Schubert and Mozart piano works from mono Epic and CBS LPs. I'm a bit of a fanatic, and normally I step thru each WAV file in 1.5 second increments, manually expunging the larger clicks and pops. But the current patients seemed almost beyond help, with Cool Edit displaying a veritable picket-fence of red spikes, each representing a unacceptable disturbance. Normally I hold off on the automated declick process until after a thorough manual walk-thru, but on this occasion I applied 3 or 4 consecutive ClickFix passes, each pass with slightly more stringent settings than the preceding one. This was followed by a Channel Mix/Average and a mild dose of Hiss Reduction, and the result was amazingly clean, especially when compared to the virtually unlistenable original source.
I shuttle back and forth between CE's Fix Single Click and ClickFix Force Fix (it's unpredictable which feature will work best on a specific pop or click) - but I never use CE's Click/Pop Eliminator any more for a pass thru an entire WAV file. The settings are iffy and it takes freaking forever. It's ClickFix all the way for me.
Many thanks and my congratulations on a great product.
