  • iZotope RX 6 Advanced - Audio Restoration and Enhancement Software (Upgrade from RX 1-5 Advanced, Download)

    Available for download, RX 6 Advanced from iZotope is the latest update to their audio-repair software, which is considered a staple within the recording, mastering, and audio-for-video, post-production communities. The software can operate either as a standalone application or 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 software can transform previously unusable audio into something usable.

    The RX 6 Advanced edition adds several important functions for professional workflows. Previous versions brought in EQ Match, Ambience Match, and De-plosive modules, but RX 6 Advanced goes further by adding De-rustle, De-wind, and De-ess modules, helping you make short work of wind-noise issues, lavalier rustling, and harsh sibilance respectively. Operations previously buried in the utilities have been given their own modules, while existing modules have been refurbished and, in a few cases, broken out into multiple processors: 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 that so many human beings find abhorrent in dialogue recordings.

    Also new to the RX Advanced workflow is the ability to edit multiple (up to 16) tracks at once. This makes the process of editing that one cough out of a multi-miked, live classical recording 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 even click tracks. Other new features include the ability to export MP3s, module list filters, and more.

    The Process tool works as it did in previous iterations, painting 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 other classic processes have been ported over, and, in a few cases, improved upon.

    More of these tools are now accessible as a plug-in; however, some processes are still only available in the standalone version, so 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, batch processing, and more. A detailed spectrum analyzer detects peaks automatically, and a suite of automatic, intelligent modules reduces manual tasks in the audio production workflow. RX 6 Advanced Audio Editor can be used as a standalone audio editor, a standalone audio editor connected to your host via RX Connect, or a suite of plug-ins. 

    Note: You must have a previously purchased, registered copy of RX Advanced (1 to 5) to qualify for this upgrade.

    New Modules and Features

    The De-rustle module removes the noise or rustle generated when a lavalier microphone rubs or brushes against a person's clothing during a recording. Lav rustle can vary unpredictably over time, exhibiting a wide variety of sonic characteristics in the process (high-frequency crackling and low-frequency thuds); this module significantly ameliorates the problem.
    This module allows you to reduce and sometimes remove distracting wind noise from audio, addressing primarily the low-frequency rumble that occurs when intermittent bursts of wind come into contact with a microphone diaphragm.
    Dialogue Isolate
    The Dialogue Isolate module is designed to separate spoken dialogue from non-stationary background noise such as crowds, traffic, footsteps, weather, and more. It is suitable for increasing the level of dialogue in challenging low signal-to-noise-ratio conditions.
    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 audio plug-in and module in iZotope RX 6 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 than Classic Mode. Spectral Mode 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 alike. 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 modules you use the most.
    Voice De-noise (Improved)
    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 stem set-and-forget denoising. Also added are optimization modes for dialogue and music. When optimized for music, Voice De-noise excels at attenuating unwanted background noise—like from an air conditioner—and street noise from sung vocals in apartment-recording situations.

  • RX Loudness Control - Automatic Global Loudness Correction Plug-In (Educational Download)

    RX Loudness Control from iZotope is a post production plug-in that avoids the problems associated with rejected audio material due to non-compliance with broadcast loudness specifications. Based around faster-than-real-time intelligent algorithms, the software delivers compliant audio from multiple hosts according to global standards.

    For many mixes, dynamics are not affected because only a fixed gain is required to meet specifications. In the case of a mix having high dynamic content or significant transients, compression and/or limiting may be applied to meet Short-term (Momentary) or True Peak parts of the specification. Surround sound up to 5.1 is supported and the software will also preserve the Left total/Right total (LtRt) encoding on a Dolby-encoded mix.

    Note: This product is an educational discounted version available to qualified students, faculty/staff, and accredited academic institutions only. Proof of current educational status is required.

    • Ensures mixes meet the required delivery specifications with intelligent algorithms that take out the guesswork
    • Deliver results globally using the latest loudness standards
    • Extensive presets and efficient workflow that saves time on the final stage of TV production
    • History graph and loudness report inform whether audio is within the appropriate tolerance of the selected loudness standard, and if not, shows where the overflows may be occurring
    • Supports mono, stereo, and surround channel counts up to 5.1
    • IRC (Intelligent Release Control) II transparent limiting algorithm, an offline process that corrects a mono, stereo, or surround sound audio file for True Peak value (dBTP)

    Insight provides a combination of both established and innovative metering solutions for any type of audio work. The flexible interface features 5 distinct metering partitions: Spectrogram, Spectrum Analyzer, Sound Field, Levels, and Loudness History.

    Unlike typical waterfall plots, Insight's real-time 3D spectrogram creates a detailed topographical map of audio using iZotope's high-resolution spectrogram capabilities. It also includes a real-time spectrum analyzer for examining the frequency balance of your mix. Insight's resizable Stereo Vectorscope provides useful display options for examining the stereo image of your mix.

    Insight features a number of tools that help ensure your audio adheres to the loudness standards. By evaluating audio levels in terms of how the human ear perceives loudness, loudness meters are used to ensure a mix complies with broadcast regulations, like those specified by the Advanced Television Standards Committee and European Broadcasting Union. Fully compliant with the ITU-R BS.1770-1, ITU-R BS.1770-2, ITU-R BS.1770-3, and EBU R128 standards, Insight provides the tools you need to be confident that your audio meets regulations.

    Insight lets you choose the meters you want to view, customize them, and navigate to exactly the level of detail that you require. For eye-popping visual insight, you can feed information on multiple audio streams to the Spectrogram via Meter Taps. Add Meter Tap plug-ins to individual tracks or buses and then open the Spectrogram to see how mix elements combine in real-time details.

    Insight's Surround Scope feature helps you visualize how your surround project will be spatially perceived by your audience during playback, and also keeps you aware of any potential technical problems with your audio's alignment. The Insight Essential Metering Suite is designed for post production and broadcast engineers, music engineers, video editors, and sound designers and composers.

  • Neutron 2 Advanced - Mixing Software with Track Assistant (Full Version, Download)

    Available for download, iZotope Neutron 2 Advanced is a channel-strip plug-in designed for mixing music and audio-post production. Like its predecessor, Neutron 2 Advanced provides a compressor, equalizer, exciter, transient shaper, and a limiter, as well as the frequency-masking meter and the track assistant feature. Many of these modules have been improved upon, and several new elements have been introduced to making your mixing session a more intuitive, gratifying enterprise.

    Take the new Visual Mixer, for instance. This separate module, included with the plug-in, gives you a visual picture of your mix; any track using Neutron 2 Advanced or the Mix Tap plug-in (explained later) can be manipulated across an intuitive, visual plane, giving you a graphical indicator not unlike an XY matrix. Move a track from the left to the right, and you are panning that track from the left to the right. Move the track up and down to dictate its sonic level within the visual framework. Each element represented in this pictorial overlay is encapsulated in a node; grab the handles of this node and pull it outwards or inwards to manipulate the element's overall stereo width. This tool is meant to benefit Neutron as an ecosystem, promoting integration between tracks boasting Neutron 2 or the Mix Tap plug-in, and allowing you to carve space without navigating through windows, fader banks, and other potential hindrances.

    As for the Mix Tap plug-in, the concept behind that is relatively straight-forward: perhaps you don’t want to load Neutron on a relatively unimportant track in your mix, but would still like to manipulate that element within the Visual Mixer. If that’s the case, simply instantiate Mix Tap on the track, and it will now interface with the Visual Mixer—but it doesn’t stop there: Mix Tap also lets you integrate non-Neutron tracks with iZotope’s Tonal Balance Control Plug-in and the Masking Meter to better implement frequency changes throughout your mix.

    This leads us nicely into the Tonal Balance Control plug-in, included with Neutron 2 Advanced. Tonal Balance Control provides an intuitive and adjustable frequency analysis over your whole mix. It's designed to help you ensure a frequency profile commensurate with the norms of modern, vintage, or orchestral music. You can also upload your own reference tracks into Tonal Balance Control and aim to match those. On the low end, a crest factor meter is provided to make sure you don't over-compress the bass frequencies. Within the plug-in, you can call up and tweak equalizers in any instance of Neutron 2 or Ozone 8 across your mix. This gives you a new level of control and inter-connectivity across the iZotope ecosystem.

    A new module has also been added into the fray, one that is sure to come in handy: a multiband noise gate with hysteresis, which also sports musical controls for eliminating unwanted, extraneous signals in a natural manner. 

    In addition to the UI improvements, which include a more intuitive layout—making features like the masking meter easier to use—Neutron 2 Advanced has also improved many of the machine-learning algorithms which made the original Neutron handy in the first place. The track assistant, for instance, now has the ability to set time constants for the dynamic processes. The functionality of the exciter has been expanded so that now you can set the drive and blend of the harmonic distortion when it analyses your track. Track Assistant also gives you a range of potential options for its custom-created presets. When first firing it up, a menu will ask you what you’re going for, giving you style options (balanced, warm, and upfront) as well as intensity choices (low, medium, and high). You can tell the algorithm what the instrument is, or choose auto-detect. If you choose the latter, know that a new detection mode has been implemented to identify pianos. When it’s done processing, the Track Assistant gives you the ability to accept or reject the custom-created channel setting.

    More options abound which improve work-flow and creativity. For instance, you’ll find a soft-saturation option attached to the equalizer. All multiband processors can be switched into single-band, and controls below the I/O section allow you to monitor in mono, flip the polarity, increase the width on both the left and right channels, and swap them. Below these controls, you’ll find the Neutrino section, which helps you maintain the clarity, focus, and separation of individual tracks across your mix by means of three controls. This software is compatible with Windows and Mac platforms. It can operate in AAX, RTAS, VST 3, VST 3, and AudioUnit formats.
