SeeDeClip repairs damage to digital recordings, many of which are found on modern CDs. So you have the CD in your hand (or CD shelf) and you'd like to listen to it with a higher level of quality.
This is what you need to do:
1. Transfer the contents of the CD onto your computer (Rip the CD) 2. Run SeeDeClip to remove the clipping damage and repair the sound 3. Transfer the new music files to a new CD (burn a CD-R)
Then you can listen to your CD free of clipping artifacts and distortions.
Step 1: Extracting your music from CD
You will need a ripper to do this with, these are programs designed just to extract your music from your CDs. You will need to download and install the ripper and tell it to extract .WAV or raw files.
Windows:FreeRip is a good (free) Windows CD ripper tool.
Apple: Just use iTunes on the Mac to rip:
Select the WAV import method (iTunes→Preferences→Advanced→Import)
Look in the Visual document for details of how to run SeeDeClip. You can experiment with single files using the main menu, which allows you to tune the settings for the CD declip (using the Preview and Execute) buttons.
You can however just use the defaults which will give you a well declipped waveform.
Once you are happy with the settings, you need to open the Tools→Batch menu:
and choose the input and output directories: i.e. where you have ripped your songs to (in Step 1 above), and where you would like the repaired songs to be put (ready for Step 3!).
When you are ready, just press Start and you will be updated with progress:
Step 3: Transfer the repaired music files to CD
You will need a CD burning program for this, which usually comes with your computer's OS or can be downloaded from the internet.
