Designed to introduce users to the powerful possibilities of editing audio within the RX platform, iZotope’s RX Elements Version 7 comprises four of the real-time modules inside of RX 7 alongside their standalone audio editor. This provides the ability to use the spectrograph to visualize audio, whereupon you can use the four tools provided to process specific segments of the audio spectrum.
The four modules, which double as single plug-ins, are De-click, De-clip, De-hum, and Voice De-noise. De-click allows you to eliminate troublesome clicks or pops that can arise from any number of errant issues. De-clip can significantly improve the quality of audio that has been pushed past the digital ceiling into the realms of unpleasant distortion. De-hum is useful in eliminating unwanted droning elements from recordings (such as refrigerator hums). The zero-latency Voice De-noise has been designed to focus on dialogue and vocals, giving you an optional Adaptive mode that can adjust to a changing noise floor in real time. There are also optimization modes for dialogue and music. When optimized for music, Voice De-noise can attenuate unwanted background noise from air conditioners, or street noise from vocals in apartment-recording scenarios.
New to Elements is RX's Repair Assistant. This tool automatically detects noise, clipping, clicks and pops, and more. Simply select the audio you need to process, click on the Repair Assistant button, and let the program analyze your audio. It will offer you three options for processing (light, medium, and aggressive), and you can choose among them after auditioning each one. Next, click Render, and RX Elements will automatically fix the issue.
Offline editing is also possible with RX Elements. In the standalone audio editor, you can use the module chain to quicken your flow, normalize audio, address its polarity, change its gain, and more. This software is available for download and can operate either as a standalone application or as a plug-in for Mac- or Windows-based DAWs. It is compatible with RTAS, AU, VST and AAX formats.
