CAMBRIDGE, MA — Izotope (www.izotope.com) has released its RX Post Production Suite, a comprehensive set of tools designed specifically to help audio pros edit, mix, and deliver better audio for film, broadcast, video, and new media. The flagship product in the suite is RX 5 Audio Editor, which represents a significant update to iZotope’s RX audio repair platform.
The new RX Post Production Suite contains products aimed at every stage of the audio post production workflow, with solution-oriented tools for everything from audio repair and editing to mix enhancement and final delivery. The RX Post Production Suite includes: RX 5 Advanced Audio Editor, RX Final Mix, RX Loudness Control, Groove3, and 50 free sound effects from Pro Sound Effects.
The new RX 5 Audio Editor and RX 5 Advanced Audio Editor efficiently repair and enhance problematic production audio while speeding up workflows that currently require either multiple manual editing passes, or a non-intuitive collection of tools from different vendors. 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 and then save that chain as a preset.
For 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.
In RX 5 Advanced Audio Editor, a new De-plosive module minimizes plosives from letters such as p, t, k, and b, in which strong blasts of air create a massive pressure change at the microphone element, impairing the sound. In addition, the Leveler module has been enhanced with breath and ‘ess’ (sibilance) detection for increased accuracy when performing faster than realtime 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.
Both RX 5 Audio Editor and RX 5 Advanced Audio Editor can be used as a standalone audio editor, as a standalone audio editor connected to a host, or as a plug-in. Supported plug-in formats include AU, VST, VST 3, AAX, RTAS, and AudioSuite.
