Getting Started with DC Millennium

DC Millennium is an easy to use audio restoration program, but it’s also one of the most powerful audio tools available. Unless you have used the program before, or you happened to be born already knowing how to use it, you will probably need to learn your way around.

This guide will do that. It’ll take you by the hand and lead you, step by step, thru the actual use of the program. Hopefully, you’ll find it a great info to Millennium, and it’ll make you smile here and there.

This is must reading. You’ll find it easy and fun!

This guide is divided into two Sections:

  • 1.

    An installation and getting started guide which tells you how to install the program, setup your soundcard, and hook up your audio devices to your computer. Even if you already know that your computer is able to both record and play audio, you should still at least skim this section- especially the part about testing your system.

  • 2.

    A very detailed Step-by-Step guide that leads you thru a full audio restoration. In our guide, we’ll clean up a very noisy recording made from an early 1920s recording.



Section One – Setting up and Testing your System for use with DC Millennium.

You’ll want to go thru this section if you are not sure how to record audio from your records or tapes.

Step One – Make Sure System Meets Our Requirements Most machines today are more than capable of handling audio processing. Hard drives have also grown to a point, where you really have no limits on what you can do…except perhaps time. As we’ve not yet developed time manipulation outside of the computer, let’s just deal with what you’ll need in the way of a PC.

  • 300 MHz Pentium or better. (Note: Real time or faster performance can be achieved on all algorithms when using platforms based on 300 MHz Intel Pentium processors, or better. Previewing multiple filters will require a faster processor.)

  • 16 bit Stereo Sound Card with line level inputs, or a "Digital Only" Card. *

  • 32 Mbytes of RAM for Win 98SE, 128 Mbytes for XP **

  • Windows 98SE, Windows ME, Windows 2000, or Windows XP

  • Audio Source Material

  • An Audio Delivery System (to match whatever source recordings you have) such as a turntable/preamp, tape player, etc.

  • A Hard Drive with enough space to accommodate your Wave files. A CD audio recording takes about 10.4MB per minute of stereo audio, but we recommend you have about 2.5GB free to make a full audio CD. (The program only requires about 5 to 14 Mbytes for itself, depending on the version)
