RX 9 Advanced

The Industry Standard for Audio Repair

RX is the award-winning audio repair suite trusted by top post production engineers on countless movies and TV shows to quickly and reliably restore damaged, noisy audio to pristine condition. Get full control over your audio whether extracting dialogue from noisy backgrounds with Dialogue Isolate’s machine learning, removing hum and interference instantly with dynamic De-hum, or matching previously impossible ambiences with movement and texture using the new complex mode in Ambience Match—all with multichannel support up to Dolby Atmos 7.1.2.

The latest advances in machine learning

Years of research and innovations in machine learning have allowed iZotope to solve some of the most impossible repair issues in audio post production, making re-recording a thing of the past. To process audio in RX 9, iZotope’s trained algorithm makes around 100,000 decisions per second about the amount of dialogue present in each pixel of the spectrogram. Advances in machine learning have allowed us to develop repair solutions for lavalier mic rustle, unwanted dialogue reverb, noisy dialogue backgrounds, vocal extraction, and vocal removal.

What’s new in RX 9?

Enhanced separation with Dialogue Isolate [Advanced]

Let your dialogue shine

Using iZotope machine learning, this new version of Dialogue Isolate makes it easier than ever to extract clean dialogue from its environment, without artifacts. Instantly separate speech from crowds, traffic, footsteps, weather, and more.

Dynamic De-hum [Standard and Advanced]

Instantly eliminate all hums

Use the new Dynamic mode in RX 9’s De-Hum to instantly remove any amount of hum, wireless ring, or interference, without artifacts or affecting the audio quality. In one pass, eliminate radio and transmitter interference, camera and generator hum, and more.

Complex Ambience Match [Advanced]

Movement brings scenes to life

Now you can seamlessly connect dialogue and ADR cuts with real background movement and textures with the new Complex mode in Ambience Match. Quickly match ambiences never before possible: ocean, wind, traffic, crowds, and more!

Additional enhancements in RX 9

  1. Roll back an audio selection to any previous step in your History list to get the best combination of audio processing from any point in time with the brand-new Restore Selection feature. [Standard and Advanced]
  2. Need to view more than five steps of undo history? No problem. The expandable History list now shows up to 30 undo steps for quick reference. [Standard and Advanced]
  3. Clean up unwanted sounds directly in Logic® using the new Spectral Editor, built on the ARA plug-in extension. Select noise and remove it without having to toggle between Logic and RX.  [Standard and Advanced]

RX 9 Advanced: Features

 

Spectral Recovery [Advanced only]

With the increasing necessity of remote meetings, podcast interviews, and video calls, real-time audio streaming is becoming more and more prevalent. Unfortunately, audio transfer protocols over the internet compress the audio and remove high-end frequencies that aid in clarity and intelligibility. Spectral Recovery restores frequencies above 4 kHz, turning grainy dialogue audio into clear, articulate recordings.

Wow & Flutter [Advanced only] 

Physical audio recordings—such as tape and vinyl—inevitably fall prey to the elements as time goes by. This often results in pitch fluctuations in audio recordings. Wow & Flutter is designed to correct this symptom regardless of the intensity of the modulating pitch. Use Wow to fix longer, sustained pitch drift, and Flutter to correct pitch variances that occur at faster rates. Wow & Flutter is the key to performing pitch-perfect music restoration in record time.

Guitar De-noise [Standard + Advanced Only]

Brand new to RX 8 Standard, Guitar De-noise allows you to refine your guitar recordings for maximum clarity in seconds. Manage sounds that can unintentionally be emphasized by the effect of compression or limiting, like electrical amp noise and interference, distracting fret or string squeaks, and harsh pick attacks. With intuitive sliders for sensitivity and gain reduction, polishing guitar performances for intelligibility and authenticity has never been easier.

Music Rebalance  |

Music Rebalance intelligently identifies vocals, bass, percussion, and other instruments in a mix for independent gain adjustment—and it’s now stronger than ever. With improved source separation algorithms and the ability to generate stems from a stereo recording, you can easily re-animate a mix, make room for scene dialogue in post, remove or isolate vocals for a remix, or even create and export new stems for further processing and mixing. Also available as an AudioSuite plug-in for Pro Tools.

Loudness Control [Standard + Advanced Only]

Prepare your recordings for final delivery with the detailed level readings and loudness management power of the all-new Loudness Control module. Instantly load preset loudness standard targets and conform your production audio to broadcast requirements in seconds, and monitor your levels using the built-in numeric and histogram readouts for integrated, short-term, and momentary loudness. Plus, resize the module to fit your display perfectly and suit your own unique workflow.

Batch Processor [Standard + Advanced Only]

Process several audio files in one pass with the newly overhauled Batch Processor. View pertinent metadata in your audio files prior to processing, then apply a full series of processors with Module Chain, now accessible from within the Batch Processor interface. At the end of it all, export your files in multiple file formats and bit depths for optimal efficiency and organisation—perfect for refining hundreds of samples for custom-made sample libraries.

Repair Assistant

Representing the latest advances in iZotope’s assistive audio technology, Repair Assistant is a game-changing intelligent repair tool that can detect noise, clipping, clicks, and more. Solve common audio issues faster than ever, simply by selecting the type of material (music, dialogue, other) and letting RX 8 Standard analyze the audio. Repair Assistant then offers different processing suggestions to help give you the best result, as well as three different intensities (light, medium, or aggressive) for each. Review and audition different suggestions, hit render, and let Repair Assistant do the rest for you!

Quickly repair these common issues in just 3 clicks:

– Noisy recordings

– Mouth clicks and pops

– Clipped or crackling audio

– Distracting, low-end hum

– Digital audio damage

– …and more!

32 Audio Tab Limit

Time is precious when editing audio in post. To help you tackle more work faster, RX 8 doubles the previous 16-tab limit, now allowing you to view and edit up to 32 files within RX Audio Editor, so you can cover more ground in less time with greater efficiency and in-app real estate.

Horizontal Scrolling NEW

You asked, and we listened: horizontal scrolling is now built into the intuitive Spectrogram Display. Use the scroll gesture on your trackpad or mouse with your cursor to scroll through yourr audio across the X-axis or lightning fast edits.

Dialogue Contour [Advanced only]

Using Dialogue Contour, you can reshape the intonation of dialogue to rescue or improve a performance in post production. Dialogue Contour features pitch correction processing that is tailored to speech and designed to adjust the inflection of words within a phrase of dialogue that may not match or flow correctly with the rest of the dialogue in the clip.

Dialogue De-reverb [Advanced only]

Reduce or remove unwanted reverb from dialogue clips using an algorithm trained with machine learning and optimised to separate spoken dialogue from reverberant signal content. Rescue production audio with too much reverb to avoid ADR and save money.

Multichannel Support [Advanced only]

Tackle audio issues that appear in any or every surround channel effortlessly up to Dolby Atmos 7.1.2.
