    Pop/click detection software

    First off, I know Audacity has a click removal tool (which isn't that great from what I've been told).

    Anyway, wondering if anyone knows of a free click/pop/skip removal or detection tool. Really tired of downloading songs and then later finding out that they have skips in them...which requires me to sit and listen + focus on whatever I download.

    If not, I know what my next project is going to be.

    Interesting...I have never needed such a tool (have only ripped my own stuff, no pops) so I will be interested in the answer here...what platform are you supporting? Linux.com :: Vinyl + Audacity = MP3 might be of help....what exactly is supposed to be wrong w/Audacity? I am not saying it is perfect or the best tool in every instance but I have found it to be reliable..
    C/C++ Environment: GNU CC/Emacs
    Make system: CMake
    Debuggers: Valgrind/GDB

    To be honest, I've only used Audacity's click removal tool once (and it didn't really work). Plus I need more of a batch-friendly tool; I don't want to open up 3000 files and use the click removal tool on each.

    In general, Audacity has been very reliable for me as well.

    you could always just go out and buy your music...I guess that's not in fashion these days...

    Stop downloading with limewire, emule, or any of that other crap. Either buy your music (or cough* google... bandName discography site:thepiratebay.org and select the song from the list).

    Yeah, I would just use a better source. I have thousands of mp3's and the only ones with pops and clicks in them are ones that were recorded from a stream or other playback (which is to be expected).
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge

    Could this thread be... closed?
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.
