I've transfered an audio recording from a tape deck to my computer. I could only get it to transfer in "raw" format. It's a recording of a conversation and the quality is lousy. It's full of pops, hisses and background noise. I have access to sony's soundforge program, which I'm hoping to use to clean it up. Since I'm a total newb when it comes to audio, can anyone tell me how to go about this? e.g. what filters to use, format to convert it into, other progs which might work better, etc.?
