Well it was announced, then we presented an exclusive preview, and now we are very pleased to tell you that everyone can access RX5 and RX5 Advanced from iZotope. It also means that the recently announced RX Post Production Suite will come with RX5 Advanced now.
As you can see from Mike's review, RX 5 Audio Editor's new Instant Process tool lets editors "paint out" unwanted sonic elements directly on the spectral display with a single mouse gesture. The new Module Chain allows users to define a custom chain of processing (e.g. De-click, De-noise, De-reverb, EQ Match, Leveler, Normalise) and then save that chain as a preset so that multiple processes can be recalled and applied in a single click for repetitive tasks. Damian Kearns, sound editor and mixer who has worked on programmes like PBS Frontline, and FIFA World Cup told us...
Module Chains mean no more printing whole tracks back to Pro Tools. Now, I can recall a chain every time I'm faced with the same location and apply it on a case-by-case basis. So much more precise than a blanket fix and so time-saving when dealing with series work.
iZotope have talked to users to discover what we need and have produced even faster workflows between Pro Tools and RX 5 Audio Editor. RX Connect has been enhanced to support individual Pro Tools clips and crossfades with any associated handles so that processed audio returns "in place" to the Pro Tools timeline, maintaining complete editing control and you can see this demonstrated in Mike's review.
In RX 5 Advanced Audio Editor, a new De-plosive module minimizes plosives from letters such as p, t, k, and b, when strong blasts of air can create a massive pressure change at the microphone element, producing the familiar pop. In addition, the Leveler module has been enhanced with breath and 'ess' (sibilance) detection and improved algorithms for even better results performing faster than real-time leveling. Likewise, new enhancements for the Ambience Match module improve accuracy for creating noise profiles when matching background noise to mask edit points. Ambience Match is now also available as an AudioSuite plug-in for constructing consistent ambience beds under constructed sentences and ADR lines directly from within Pro Tools and Media Composer. Mark Ayres, composer and audio restoration expert told us...
I use RX all the time. Recently I have restored the soundtracks of episodes of BBC Sci-Fi series Doctor Who from off-air recordings made in the 1960s, and Thunderbirds from vinyl recordings that are being used as the basis for newly shot episodes.
In a similar vain, Steve Giammaria, sound re-recording mixer at Sound Lounge in NYC told us...
I use RX 5 everyday on literally every project I touch. The main improvement for my workflow in RX 5 is the addition of Ambience Match as an AudioSuite plug-in. It saves me hundreds of clicks a day!
Our own Mr RX It, Mike Thornton recently tweeted...
Been editing an interview for @protoolsexpert from my recent visit to @IBCShow and @iZotopeInc RX5 Advanced De-plosive module has been brilliant.
