Removing Tape Hiss

I was wondering if anyone has some suggestions on how to remove tape hiss from 4 track tape recordings that have been ported into CWSP3.1?

Thanks,
Ron

    I use the Cool Edit Pro/Adobe Audition noise reduction tool for this.
    It used to be that you could get this more cheaply by buying
    Cool Edit 2000 and getting the noise module as an add-on, but
    Syntillium shut down CE2K when they sold out to Adobe.
    Audition will cost you more, but it's still a pretty darn good audio
    toolkit for the money.

    Tuesday Morn

    I have been using Sound Forge's "Noise Reduction" for tapes recorded using a Tascam 3440.

    I purchased NR 2.0 it bundled with CD Architect.

    Search google for "CD Architect" "noise reduction"

    Arboretum has two products for this. I use Raygun and it's my favorite. Some times it's better to make two passes and reduce a little each time then to try to get in all in one pass. Also Raygun has way cool EQ and stereo expander built in. If you use a noise reduction plugin and find the track now sounds dull, you can go back with the BBE Sonic Maximizer and even some plate reverb to put the "air" back in it.

    I use Waves' X-Noise (expensive), and Sonic Foundry's Noise Reduction (not expensive).

    Waves X-Noise is the best I've heard, but your going to pay.
