iZotope RX is a post-production powerhouse used on countless albums, movies and TV shows to restore damaged, noisy audio to pristine condition. With version 8, RX brings more power and intelligent processors for music and post than ever before. RX 8 Standard can identify and repair problems with the standalone RX Audio Editor application, or work through real-time plug-ins in the DAW or NLE.
In addition to industry-leading repair tools for post, RX 8 Standard introduces groundbreaking new features for music production. Use Guitar De-noise to manage aspects of guitar performance like amplifier hum and interference, fret squeaks and pick attacks—resulting in a clean, controlled recording. Leverage the improved source separation tech of Music Rebalance to mix musical elements of a stereo audio file independently, or automatically create individual stems for more nuanced mixing and processing. Prepare production audio for broadcast at optimal loudness with the new Loudness Control module. Whether cleaning up musical performances, performing last-minute mix edits or preparing audio for delivery, RX 8 Standard has the tools to get it done in record time.
Rebalance or Isolate Elements of the Mix
Are the vocals too quiet or the drums too loud? Can’t find the original stems to the song? With Music Rebalance, no mix is “final.” Using an algorithm trained with machine learning, Music Rebalance can intelligently identify vocals, bass, percussion and other instruments and individually enhance or isolate elements of an audio track. This makes it possible to remaster without multi-tracks. Isolate or remove vocals from the song, or for more problematic mixes, separate each musical element into separate stems for individual processing.
Refine Guitar Recordings
A clean, articulate guitar track is pivotal to a high-quality music production. RX 8 Standard introduces Guitar De-noise, a quick and easy way to manage the unwanted effects that can result from limiting or compression. Reduce the prominence of electrical amplifier noise and hum, fret squeaks and pick attacks to clarify guitar recordings—without removing the all-important human performance element.
Finalize Audio Levels for Delivery
Loudness is more important than ever in the age of streaming media and remote podcasting. That's why RX 8 includes an all-new Loudness Control module. It has preset targets for virtually every current broadcast loudness standard, and a Loudness Gate that prevents periods of silence from skewing loudness readings. Numeric and histogram displays measure integrated, short-term and momentary loudness. With all this and more, any music, film, television and podcast audio is sure to be clear, intelligible and appropriately loud.
Representing the latest advances in iZotope's assistive audio technology, Repair Assistant is a game-changing intelligent repair tool that can detect noise, clipping, clicks and more. Solve common audio issues faster than ever, simply by selecting the type of material (music, dialogue, other) and letting RX 8 Standard analyze the audio. Repair Assistant then offers different processing suggestions to create the best result, as well as three different intensities (light, medium or aggressive) for each. Review and audition different suggestions, hit render and let Repair Assistant do the rest—it’s truly that easy.This version includes an educational discount for current students and faculty.
