MP3 artifacts
I have a couple of videos with poorly encoded MP3 audio that has nasty artifacts. You know the ones. That warbly,flanged, hollow underwater sound.

Does anyone know a way to reduce those? I'm not asking about restoring it to a pristine 24 bit 96KHz Wav; I know that you can't put back what was never there in the first place. I'm only asking about reducing the artifacts. I know the end result would still be low quality.

I'm kind of expecting the answer to be "no," so it won't hurt my feelings to hear the truth, if that's what it is.

RE: MP3 artifacts
You can spend hours in RX trying, I have, but basically NO.
This is one aspect of MP3 that a lot of people forget, it is a 'lossy' compression, so once it's been lost it's lost forever.

RE: MP3 artifacts
I pretty much expected that, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask.
