Lift Your Little Paws Like Antennas to Heaven!


I love to rent old VHS tapes and recently one stuck with me. Days of Pentecost from 1996. It seems fairly rare, but I managed to get ahold of it. The issue I'm having it it though is that on most VHS players the audio has the random, intermittent buzz, especially in the gaps of dialogue. I've heard this could be because I have a hifi stereo VCR. Should a non hifi or mono VCR solve this problem? What else should I be doing to clean it up, it's got some video tracking issues as well. Is there any recommended post-capture processes (I'll be using an HDPVR).

Also, anything else you randomly know about VHS collecting and restoration, let me know!

We're in the business of extending man's senses.


I do it with either a high-end S-VHS consumer VCR or a Panasonic editing deck, depending on whether it was a home-recorded tape or not. I capture with a Blackmagic Intensity Pro, and encode to Lagarith to keep it lossless. Both players have a built-in TBC.
