A new Fatigue Meter for the Bulldog aircraft (Part 2)

PART TWO This is a direct continuation of PART ONE, picking up where I left off. I start with the next major step being Source the uninterruptible power supply (UPS).

De-Noising Audio using Spectral Subtraction in MATLAB and Ableton Live

Last time I wrote about audio restoration using simple digital filtering (in MATLAB and Ableton Live). I’ve since received another old Havering recording from Walt.
