TIMETRAVELER: REMOVING WOW AND FLUTTER FROM ARCHIVE ANALOG TAPES USING DSP
Jamie Howarth, Plangent Processes
Patrick J. Wolfe, University of Cambridge, UK.
Plangent Processes will be demonstrating a system that looks back at the motion and mechanics of the original recorder as it operated on the day of the session, then utilizes forensic techniques and novel DSP methods to correct the wow, flutter and scrape flutter in the master recording.
This is the meeting point of When Analog Ruled, and futuristic digital processing. Presentation will include a demo of the pre- and post-processed results on familiar master material, and discussion about the DSP theory involved.
