Default writing a Pro Tools plug-in

So lately I've been working with with some troublesome audio that has some digital "pops" in it due to samples being dropped during recording. While trying to test out some noise reduction and click removal plug-ins, i found that most of those plugins lack the necessary algorithm to get rid of this problem without destroying more of the audio than I would prefer.

If I look at the sample level of the clicks, it is a one-sample flat spot, I assume due to the sample being dropped or skipped and replaced with the preceding sample's value. Therefore it leaves a flat spot, and is only really noticeable during louder sections where there are steeper waveforms.

I'm wondering first if there is already a plug-in designed specifically with this problem in mind (that doesn't cost $1000)?


Does anyone know how to make a plug-ing for Pro Tools so that I can simply write my own algorithm to remove this, rather than do it manually?

The Izotope plug-ins are great for this - check out the DeClicker:

I'll second RX. There's nothing at the same price that's close.

All the X stuff from Waves works great when I have problems like this. Pops, clicks and buzz all removed very well. They are a bit expensive. Not a $1000 though.
