iZotope RX 2 Advanced overview

  • 1Description

RX 2 Advanced from iZotope takes the RX 2 version of audio restoration software, and adds several important features to enhance the audio repair workflow. As with the regular version, the software allows for removing noise, hiss, buzz and hum, eliminating clicks and crackle, restoring clipped audio, visually selecting and suppressing unwanted sounds, re-synthesizing missing audio, and much more.

Additions include an adaptive feature for the denoiser for removing noise that changes over time. Third party plug-in support enables any processing on spectrogram selections, while Sample Rate Conversion (SRC), MBIT+ dithering, and pitch and time manipulation processes add valuable functionality. Also available is time-stamped log creation, essential for forensics and archival documentation. Tape restoration has automatic Azimuth alignment and precise sub-sample control of delay.

Deconstruct, a new class of audio manipulation tool, intelligently separates audio into "tonal" and "noisy" components. For example, a singer's voice has tonal parts (vowels, M and N sounds) and noisy sounds (breath sounds and sibilance like H, S and Sh). RX 2 Advanced provides the ability to separate and rebalance these components, 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.

The software can function as either a standalone application, or as a plug-in within the appropriate host software.
