Default Useful plugins for vinyl/tape restoration?

I'm middle of transferring some precious old tapes & vinyls, and i was wondering if there are any good free plugins that can be used for "remastering"? Stereo widener, noise remover, click/pop, eq? Also any tips & tricks are more than welcome.


PS. This is my first post as registered (non-commercial) Reaper user.

I'm not familiar with any plug-ins, but you might find Goldwave helpful. It's an audio editing app. It has a good noise gate, noise reduction, and pop/click filter. It's shareware with a nag pop-up, but it's fully functional without a license (very reasonable price though).

You can try Acon Acoustica 4 for 3 for 30 days. It is an audio editor and comes with a plugin bundle, rather efficient.
THey also recently released something called "lava", which aims at vinyl restoration.
You can also use Reaper, along with Reafir, Reaeq, and all the JS suite.

Stereo widening - MSED from Voxengo (choose "inline" mode).
