The RX 3 Advanced Complete Audio Repair Software from iZotope is a collection of tools designed for repairing digital audio files. It is capable of removing a variety of noises, clipping, hum, buzz, crackles, and clips as well as solving more advanced audio issues such as removing and reducing reverb and spectral repair. RX 3 Advanced can function as standalone software and supports AAX, RTAS, AudioSuite, VST, VST3, and Audio Unit plug-in formats.
Geared for use in recording, video post production, restoration and archiving, broadcasting, and forensics, RX 3 Advanced's tools can be used in applications ranging from removing amp noise on a guitar track to reducing hiss while transferring older analog sources to digital, and can even be used fix clipping from a track recorded too loudly. Designed to support multicore processing, the software distributes its workload across your multiple processors for expedited results.
Please note, purchasing RX 3 Advanced Complete Audio Repair Software during or after August 2014 entitles you to a free upgrade to RX 4 Advance upon its release.
Designed specifically for dialogue, the Dialogue Denoiser tool sets a new audio standard for real-time dialogue treatment. When unwanted background noise and electrical interference threaten the quality of vocal recordings, the Dialogue Denoiser replaces the need for costly and time-consuming ADR, ensuring professional sounding results. And with an intuitive "set it and forget it" workflow that automatically adjusts to changing noise profiles, those working in Hollywood post houses as well as bedroom studios will find it incredibly easy to use.
With an algorithm specifically tuned to keep dialogue as pristine as possible, the Dialogue Denoiser can treat most problems right out of the box-potentially saving you hours of time
Dereverb removes and reduces unwanted reverb from vocal and instrumental tracks, allowing you to keep audio clear and focused. Take control over the amount of ambient space captured in a recording: make large cathedrals sound like small halls and make roomy vocals sound like they were recorded in a proper studio space. With easy-to-use controls and powerful technology under the hood, it's a tool for anyone seeking a tighter mix
Insight is iZotope's essential metering suite, bundled with RX 3 Advanced as an additional plug-in. With its set of audio analysis and metering tools, Insight is geared for visualizing changes made during mixing and mastering, troubleshooting problematic mixes, and ensuring compliance with international broadcast loudness standards like BS.1770-1/2/3 and EBU R128. Fully customizable and scalable, Insight allows you to visually monitor all relevant information from your mono, stereo or surround mix in a convenient floating window. Load Insight into your favorite DAW or NLE to keep an eye as well as an ear on your mix at all times
Deconstruct intelligently separates audio into tonal and noisy components, allowing independent control of each. For example, a singer's voice combines both musical tones with noisy sounds like breaths and sibilance. RX 3 gives you the power to separate and rebalance these audio building blocks, opening up creative possibilities like accentuating only the tonal parts of a flute or sax recording, or bringing out the airy qualities of a nuanced vocal performance
Spectral Repair is the key to discovering what your waveform won't show you. Use familiar drawing tools to identify and select problem frequencies and unwanted sounds. Salvage unusable material by filling in audio gaps instantly. With a unique visualization and a variety of selection tools to use, Spectral Repair lets you get closer to your audio--and take a hands-on approach to repairing and enhancing it.
Once a problem sound has been identified and selected, the Spectral Repair algorithms are able to re-synthesize the audio while taking into consideration tonal harmonics, nonlinear pitch changes like vibrato, background noise characteristics and transient events. With these tools, you can remove unwanted, interfering sounds ranging from barking dogs to string squeaks and missed notes
RX 3 Advanced includes a multi-resolution mode that more accurately separates unwanted noise and desired audio
Denoise provides natural noise reduction with unparalleled clarity and control. Built with the most troublesome audio imperfections in mind, Denoise removes unwanted noise from any type of recording-such as music, old recordings, home movies and more. With transparent noise suppression technology that minimizes artifacts, the Denoise module is carefully designed to preserve the character of your audio. In addition, Denoise allows independent control over both tonal and broadband noise components, providing creative control over the color of the end result.
RX 3 Advanced features Adaptive Mode, which analyzes changing noise profiles and fixes audio imperfections automatically. It's the choice for fast, efficient audio repair on the fly
iZotope's Declip technology reconstructs peaks damaged by clipping at either the analog or digital stage. As a bonus, the Suggest feature in Declip can automatically analyze a selection and recommend a suitable threshold--helping you get through projects even faster
Declick & Decrackle
Declick automatically identifies and removes clicks, pops and digital impulse noises that can ruin a listening experience. Turn to Delick when polishing audio transfers and other recordings suffering from quality degradation, digital errors, mouth noises, and interference from cell phones. For the toughest click and crackle problems, Interpolate Mode allows you to make manual sample-level corrections to audio.
Decrackle is designed to treat continuous background crackle from sources such as vinyl, but can also treat problems like dry-mouthed spoken word and reed noise from woodwind instruments
Remove Hum automatically identifies the base frequency of unwanted hum, and removes it from the recording along with harmonics, ensuring a clean overall sound. For more complex hum and buzz removal, the module also automatically recommends when to use Denoise instead, so you'll always have the most suited for the job
Center Channel Extraction
Achieve noise cancellation when working with stereo files of mono material. Perfect for stereo A/D conversions of mono recordings, stereo playback of mono tapes, and vocal isolation from stereo music recordings
Take advantage of your computer's power when performing intense audio processing. Optimized to use every CPU core available, the RX 3 standalone application allows you to process audio faster than ever before, with the highest possible quality
