In addition they have announced the RX Post Production Suite which will bundle all the RX post pro tools, RX Advanced Audio Editor, Insight, RX Final Mix and RX Loudness Control and is available now.
Highlights In RX5 Audio Editor
RX5 is the result of a lot of research, and talking to users to find out what our pain points are, and as a result RX5 is mainly about workflow. Improving workflow, making things easier and faster. But don't worry, there some new features too.
De-plosive - With this module you can improve the quality of your dialogue by removing plosive pops and mic bumps that can occur during a recording. This module alone will save loads of time. With Spectral Repair we could take out pops and bangs, but you had to do it one at a time. Now with De-plosive you can run through a complete file in seconds. (Advanced only)
Leveler - This module has been substantially improved with the addition of a built in de-esser to manage sibilance and a breath control to make sure breaths don't jump up and hit you in the face. (Advanced only)
AudioSuite Ambience Match Plug-in - iZotope introduced Ambience Match into the standalone version of RX4 Advanced. Now we can use the power of Ambience Match to create and insert 'Fill' or create dedicated 'Fill' tracks from the corresponding dialog tracks using an AudioSuite plug-in without having to leave Pro Tools. (Advanced only)
Instant Process Tool - When cleaning field up with modules like Spectral Repair, it can be really tedious to keep having to select an area of audio and then mouse up to the module and hit Process. Also the module window can get in the way. With the new Instant Process feature, once you have selected your bit of audio, it is processed immediately, so you can move straight onto the next problem area. Instant Process has several different modes - Attenuate, De-click, Fade, and Gain, and Replace.
Module Chain - Often we need to use a number of modules to process a clip of audio, and until now we had to select a module one at a time. Now with Module Chain we can process clips with multiple modules all at once again saving valuable time and mouse clicks.
De-reverb - iZotope introduced De-verb into RX Advanced. With RX5, De-reverb will be available in the standard version as well as the Advanced version.
Corrective EQ - The EQ module in RX has undergone an overhaul and has a very similar look and feel to the EQ section in Final Mix. Now with 6 fully parametric bands and new filters to be used for cutting harsh high frequencies, rolling off low rumbles, reducing standing waves from a boomy location recording or increasing the intelligibility of dialogue.
Clip By Clip Processing with Pro Tools - You can now use Clip by Clip processing with the RX Connect plug-in to take multiple clips across into the standalone version of RX, work on then in RX and then ship them back into Pro Tools still as separate clips.
