iZotope 70-RX6UP overview

  • 1Description

Available for download, RX 6 Standard from iZotope is the latest update to their audio repair software, which is considered a staple for recording, mastering, and audio-for-video post-processing. The software can operate either as a standalone application or as a plug-in for both Mac and Windows based DAWs and NLEs. From fixing common audio problems like noises, distortions, and inconsistent recordings to repairing severely damaged audio using Spectral Repair, the RX can transform previously unusable audio into something usable.

The standard edition of RX 6 incorporates many of the advanced features of RX 5, adding some extra processes for good measure. EQ Match, Ambience Match, and De-plosive are all provided, while operations previously buried in the utilities have been given their own modules. Voice De-noise is now its own dedicated module with separated optimization modes for dialogue and music. A new Mouth De-click module has been tailored to zoom in on—and promptly eradicate—those pesky mouth sounds found in dialogue recordings.

Also new to the RX workflow is the ability to edit up to 16 tracks at one time. This makes the process of editing one flaw out of a multi-miked, live-classical recording much easier to accomplish. A De-bleed module is included, allowing you to reduce the leakage of errant audio; you can use this to eliminate headphone bleed, small amounts of cross-bleed between mics and click tracks. Other new features include the ability to export MP3s and module list filters.

The Process Tool works as it did in earlier versions of RX, allowing you to paint away audio problems on the spectrogram in one of several modes (Attenuate, De-click, Fade, Gain, and Replace), as does the Module Chain, which reduces the number of mouse clicks required for using a series of processes. Corrective EQ, De-clip, and some other classic processes have been ported over and improved upon.

More of these tools are now accessible as a plug-in; however, some processes are still only available in the standalone version. RX Connect has been provided to use offline processes in conjunction with your DAW or NLE. This facilitates seamless transfers and keeps productivity flowing. Additional features include high-quality re-sampling and dithering, rebuilding distorted audio, and batch processing. A detailed spectrum analyzer detects peaks automatically, and a suite of automatic, intelligent modules reduce manual tasks in the audio production workflow. RX 6 Audio Editor can be used as a standalone audio editor (including standalone but connected to your host via RX Connect), or it can be used as a suite of plug-ins. 

Note: This item is for registered users of RX versions 1 through 5 who wish to upgrade to RX 6 Standard.
This download is eligible for a FREE upgrade to RX 7.

New Modules and Features

Composite View
Composite View allows you to edit and apply processing to 16 individual audio tracks as if they were one, easily addressing audio issues that appear across multiple microphones. The Composite View feature in the RX Audio Editor combines all active tabs into the Composite tab that allows you to apply the same processing to multiple files simultaneously. Composite View can be used to increase expediency when performing repetitive spectral editing functions. This makes it particularly useful when making repairs in recording situations with multiple microphones or repairs to multichannel files.
Working across multiple tracks, the De-bleed module reduces the leakage of one signal into another. De-bleed can help reduce or eliminate bleed from headphones, click tracks, multiple mics with small amounts of cross bleed, and even some drum bleed issues.
The De-ess plug-in and module attenuates or reduces sibilance (the harsh high-frequency sounds that come from S, F, X, SH, and soft C sounds). Two modes for handling sibilance are provided. Classic Mode detects sibilants and attenuates them with a broadband gain envelope. Spectral Mode is more transparent, intelligent, and frequency-specific and only attenuates the high frequencies where sibilance is most active, leaving the lower frequencies untouched.
Mouth De-click
The Mouth De-click module has been finely tuned to detect and reduce mouth noises such as clicks and lip smacks—many a listener's worst nightmare. It's designed for use on longer audio selections, but it can be used to remove individual clicks.
Breath Control
The Breath Control module intelligently detects breaths in dialogue or vocal recordings and suppresses them. Removing and reducing breaths in recordings can be a time-consuming process for dialogue editors and music producers. Breath Control can help reduce the time spent on repetitive editing without sacrificing audio quality.
MP3 Export
RX 6 supports exporting files in MP3 format. Constant bit rate, average bit rate, and variable bit rate are supported with bit rates up to 320 kBps.
Module List Filters
The Module List in iZotope RX has been redesigned to group features under the following categories: Repair, Utility, and Measurement. The Module List now features the ability to save custom views as presets so you can quickly access the modules that you use the most.
Separated Voice De-Noiser
Improving on the earlier Dialogue De-noise tab in the overall De-noise module, the newly separated zero-latency Voice De-noise has been designed to focus on dialogue and sung vocal treatment. Voice De-noise has an Adaptive mode that can adjust to a changing noise floor in real time, making it ideal for dialogue denoising. Also added are optimization modes for dialogue and music. When optimized for music, Voice De-noise excels at attenuating unwanted background noise from like air conditioners and street noise from sung vocals in apartment recording situations.

General Features

Improvements over Previous Versions
  • Improvements made to De-click, Deconstruct, De-plosive, and Ambience Match Modules.
  • Improvements made to Center Extract and Find Similar processes 
Key Features at a Glance
  • De-plosive eliminates every plosive from any dialogue track with transparency
  • Leveler smooths any volume inconsistencies with an automatic clip gain envelope; leveler optimized for dialogue using intelligent De-breath and De-ess algorithms
  • Instant Process tool is a one-click eraser for removing unwanted coughs, scene-interrupting sirens, etc.
  • Module Chain can process multiple modules at once, save your customized chains as presets, and execute them all with a single click, enhancing workflow and reducing mouse clicks
  • Sync and integrate the RX Audio Editor with any DAW or NLE timeline using RX Connect
  • Pro Tools support for clip-by-clip and handles, which preserves the boundaries of clips, allowing for simpler conformation to future picture changes

iZotope 70-RX6UP reviews

iZotope RX 6 Standard Audio Restoration and Enhancement Software (Upgrade from RX 1-5, Download) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from An extremely useful app for perfecting voiceovers While I try to avoid plosives in voiceover work, sometimes they get through my pop filter. RX 6 has plosive correction in this version, and it makes quick work of minor plosives. Trying to remove major plosives will leave a hole in the track, so it makes sense to reduce them. Overall, this is a great application for those of us with less-than-ideal home studios.
