Whats New in RX 5 Audio Editor
Since the first version of RX, our users have helped us shape the roadmap for the product line. Each feature were adding to RX 5 Audio Editor is the direct result of continued dialogue with our users.
Workflow enhancements, smart default settings, instant audio fixes, and tighter integration with Avid Pro Tools make your repetitive editing tasks remarkably more efficient. RX 5 Audio helps you get more work done faster so you can deliver ahead of schedule every time. The result? You spend less time fixing and more time creatively polishing the overall mix
RX comes in two distinct versions. RX 5 Audio Editor and RX 5 Advanced Audio Editor, the flagship product in the RX Post Production Suite. RX 5 Advanced Audio Editor is designed for professional post production audio engineers who demand best in class audio processing tools and deep controls. RX 5 Audio Editor delivers the essential tools any audio editor needs to repair and enhance audio for their productions.
Improve the quality of your dialogue by removing plosive pops and mic bumps that can occur during a recording. Intelligent analysis detects the presence of a plosive in between the desirable harmonics of a dialogue or vocal signal. It then transparently reduces the plosive far more effectively than simply using an EQ to roll off the low end (which lacks precision and also affects dialogue frequencies).
Level the volume of your dialogue with consistency, while keeping the breathes and sibliances lower. Take hours of production dialogue and non-destructively level it out in just a few minutes, leaving you time for fine tuning and creative mixing.
ADV Ambience Match & AudioSuite Plug-in
Fill in consistent ambience beds under constructed sentences and ADR lines right from within Pro Tools AudioSuite. No longer spend hours of time manually looping sections of ambience under a scene with ADR and broken up sentences.
ADV EQ Match
Create a consistent sonic sound between two different dialogue recordings (for example, matching ADR to production audio. Save time editing by easily producing EQ consistency between dialogue lines without manually trying to match their EQs.
Ensure compliance with international broadcast standards.
The Loudness module quickly makes any mix compliant with network standards across the world, so you can export and deliver your mix to multiple networks. Simply enter the desired True Peak and LKFS values, and click Process. The module will indicate what the loudness measurements are for your audio (integrated, shorterm, momentary, range loudness, and true peak); you can then select a preset or set a desired target Integrated Loudness and True Peak value for the program audio.
Instant Process Tool
Directly and intuitively paint away audio problems on the spectrogram within the timeline. Intuitively cleanup and repair audio in a quick and immediate way that will save many mouse clicks. Instant Process is a mode that may be toggled on/off. When Instant Process is on, any selection you make is immediately processed. Simply paint an audio problem away without needing to open a module, choose settings, and then click Process. Instant Process offers several different modes (Attenuate, De-click, Fade, and Gain, and Replace) which will instantly process the settings present in the named module/tab.
Process multiple modules (preset) at once, reducing the amount of mouse clicks. Get quick results and save time on a project that contain problematic audio needing multiple processes to get cleaned up.
Surgically reduce and remove problematic frequencies.
The Corrective EQ module can often be a simple first step to preparing a file for cleanup and repair. Now with a new easy-to-use UI, 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.
De-clip repairs digital and analog clipping artifacts that result when A/D converters are pushed too hard or magnetic tape is over-saturated. De-clip can be extremely useful for saving recordings that were made in a single pass, such as live concerts or interviews, and any audio that cannot be re-recorded.
Reduce some of the reverb from a recorded space in order to make the dialogue useable. Salvage recordings of dialogue containing too much reverb/acoustic space without needing to spend time/money on a reshoot or ADR. Take control over the amount of ambient space captured in a recording: make large cathedrals sound like small halls and make roomy vocals sound like they were recorded in a proper studio space. With easy-to-use controls and powerful technology under the hood, it's an essential tool for anyone seeking a tighter mix.
Integrate a quick workflow between your DAW/NLE and RX Audio Editor to utilize all the repair/enhancement modules needed to cleanup production audio. For Pro Tools RX Connect now supports clip-by-clip and handles which preserves the boundaries of clips, so you can conform to future picture changes with ease. RX Monitor enables you to monitor your audio from the RX Audio Editor application through your host application (i.e. Pro Tools, which does not allow other applications to use their hardware simultaneously).
Restore problematic vocal or production audio recordings in real time. The zero-latency Dialogue De-noise real-time plug-in is the most powerful denoiser focused on dialogue treatment. When unwanted background and ambient noise threaten the quality of dialogue recordings, Dialogue De-noise replaces the need for costly and time-consuming automated dialogue replacement (ADR) — ensuring professional sounding results, every time. And with an intuitive "set it and forget it" workflow that automatically adjusts to changing noise profiles, those working in high-end post production houses as well as home studios will find it incredibly easy to use.
With an algorithm specifically tuned to keep dialogue as pristine as possible, Dialogue De-noise can treat most problems right out of the box — potentially saving you hours of time.
Visually isolate and paint away to remove any unwanted sounds.
Spectral Repair is the key to discovering what your waveform won't show you. Use familiar drawing tools to identify and select problem frequencies and unwanted sounds. Salvage unusable material by filling in audio gaps instantly. With a unique visualization and a variety of selection tools at your fingertips, Spectral Repair lets you get closer to your audio — and take a hands-on approach to repairing and enhancing it.
Once a problem sound has been identified, the Spectral Repair algorithms available either in the module or Instant Process Tool, are able to resynthesize the audio while taking into consideration tonal harmonics, nonlinear pitch changes like vibrato, background noise characteristics and transient events. With the power of these tools, you can remove or attenuate unwanted, interfering sounds — from barking dogs and breath noises to string squeaks, fret noise, and missed/wrong notes.
RX 5 Advanced Audio Editor includes a multi-resolution mode that more accurately separates unwanted noise and desired audio.
ADV iZotope Insight®
Visualize your mix and comply with loudness standards.
The Insight real-time plug-in (a $499 value) is bundled with RX 5 Advanced Audio Editor.
Reduce unwanted background noise quickly and easily.
De-noise provides natural noise reduction with unparalleled clarity and control. Built with the most troublesome audio imperfections in mind, De-noise removes unwanted tonal and broadband noise from any type of recording — such as music, old recordings, home movies, production recordings, and more. With transparent noise suppression technology that minimizes artifacts, the De-noise module is carefully designed to preserve the character of your audio.
RX 5 Advanced Audio Editor features Adaptive Mode, which analyzes changing noise profiles and fixes audio imperfections automatically. It's the ideal choice for fast, efficient audio repair on the fly.
Eliminate clicks, crackles, pops and digital impulse noises.
De-click automatically identifies and removes clicks, pops and digital impulse noises that can ruin a listening experience. Turn to De-click when polishing audio transfers and other recordings suffering from quality degradation, digital errors, mouth noises, and interference from cell phones. For the toughest click and crackle problems, Interpolate Mode allows you to make manual sample-level corrections to audio.
De-crackle is designed to treat continuous background crackle from sources such as vinyl, but can also treat problems like dry-mouthed spoken word and reed noise from woodwind instruments.
Remove electrical hum and line noise.
De-hum automatically identifies the base frequency of unwanted hum, and precisely removes it from the recording along with harmonics — ensuring a clean overall sound without electrical interference. For more complex hum and buzz removal, the module also automatically recommends when to use De-noise instead, so you'll always have the best tool at hand for the job. The "Adaptive" mode removes hum that changes in frequency over time.
