iZotope will reveal its new RX Post Production Suite, a comprehensive suite of editing and mixing tools, as well as RX 5 Audio Editor, an update to its RX platform, at IBC (stand 8.D70).
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, a one-year, all-access pass to Groove3 online video courses & training, and a choice of 50 free sound effects from Pro Sound Effects.
The new RX 5 Audio Editor and RX 5 Advanced Audio Editor are designed to repair and enhance common 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'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, Leveller, 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.
For even faster workflows between Pro Tools and RX 5, 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.
In RX 5 Advanced, a new De-plosive module has been developed to minimise 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 real-time levelling. 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 AudioSuite plug-in for constructing consistent ambience beds under constructed sentences and ADR lines directly from within Pro Tools and Media Composer.
"Our users have helped make RX the industry standard in audio post production,” commented Matt Hines, audio post product manager for iZotope. “This evolution to the RX Post Production Suite is just the start of our continued journey into building the award-winning, workflow-enhancing tools our users dream of as they seek to deliver the best-sounding audio they can under increasingly tight and oppressive deadlines."
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 your host, or as a plug-in. Supported plug-in formats include AU, VST, VST 3, AAX, RTAS and AudioSuite.
RX Post Production Suite is available for purchase now. Customers who purchase the RX Post Production Suite during the promotional period will receive RX 4 Advanced immediately, and will be given RX 5 Advanced Audio Editor when it is released.
