    Default Goon Show cassette tapes

    I have six Goon Show tapes in special box to give away for any Goon Show fans. I am giving them away as I no longer have a cassette player.

    Let me know if you are interested.

    I recorded my last few cassettes on the pc before I ditched my tape player, came out surprisingly well as tape hiss is a very consistent noise and easily removed.

    Depends what you mean. Warped in the sense of the comedy? Definitely! But if you mean the cassettes, no worries.

    I have been using quite an old programme called Cool Edit, but now it won't run on the latest PC. It was very good at removing noise. These days I use Audacity which does everything that Cool Edit does. Very good. What programme do you use?

    I also used cool edit for a time, and the cut down version of it that was included with some CD burning software as well. These days I occasionally use dBpoweramp but my licence and version are getting pretty old. Mainly got it many years back for the ability to convert between lossless formats and use every available thread for a separate track (16 at a time was quite something when I got my ryzen) and also because windows media player was mis-naming tracks I was ripping due to picking the wrong version of a CD, US version of dirty deeds instead of aussie one etc.
