Izotope improves audio restoration tools
CAMBRIDGE, MA — Izotope (www.izotope.com) recently released RX 2 and RX 2 Advanced, updates to the company’s audio repair software suites. Both are designed to repair common and uncommon audio problems, such as tonal and broadband noise, hiss, buzz, hum, clicks, crackle, distortion and interfering sounds. 
 
RX 2 builds on the success of the original's Denoise, Spectral Repair, Declick, Declip and Remove Hum modules with Izotope's latest DSP algorithm improvements and the new Decrackle and Channel Operations modules. RX 2 Advanced extends the standard RX with an adaptive Denoiser mode, a Deconstruct module, third party plug-in hosting, Izotope 64-bit SRC resampling, MBIT+ dither, Izotope Radius time and pitch control, the ability to export an edit history, multi-resolution mode for Spectral Repair and automatic azimuth correction.
 
Both include new visual editing features and functionality, such as the Magic Wand, Lasso and Brush tools designed for selecting audio in the sample’s spectrogram. The tools act similarly to those found in popular graphics programs. The tools are available as both a suite of plug-ins for a DAW and as a dedicated application. The updated Batch Processor allows the chaining together of modules to operate on multiple files, all optimized with the use of multiple CPUs.
  
RX 2 and RX 2 Advanced run on Windows (XP, x64, Vista, 7) or Mac OS X 10.5 or later (Universal Binary) standalone application plug-in formats such as Pro Tools 7+ (RTAS/AudioSuite), VST, MAS, Audio Unit and DirectX. Pricing is $349 for RX 2 and $1,199 for RX 2 Advanced. Upgrade pricing is available for RX and RX Advanced owners.
