    I'm thinking of recording a mixtape using only beats from Dilla's beat tapes.

    Problem is a lot of them are low quality recording. Can I do anything to even slightly improve this?

    Also, there's a lot of hissing on some of them. Can I get rid of this? I don't have any music editing software really except virtual Dj which I just use to loop a few bars when writing to a song. Can I do anything with that? I know Audacity is free, would that be of use?

    yes, you can reconstruct them from the cleanest parts, be it on hit for hit level or pasting together the cleanest parts of a loop then looping that, basically lots and lots of chopping.

    noise reduction hiss reduction all those reconstruction functions in audition and then mastering plugs like izotope

    its shit fiddly and the rewards are meager. best i could do, i was impregnated by a man name juan panzer division marduk
