iZotope Adds RX 11 Suite To Their Definitive Audio Repair Toolkit

The name iZotope is all over the world of audio creation. Their RX Suite has been a part of the Native Instruments catalog for many years and has been used by professional studios everywhere, especially ones in Hollywood. Using the tools provided by the RX suite, post-production audio for film is much easier to manage. It has helped make previously unsolvable problems solvable through its state-of-the-art machine-learning technology. RX 11 looks to provide even more tools that will allow you to tackle complex audio issues.

What The RX Suite Does

There aren’t a lot of plugins that can do what the iZotope RX Suite does. It offers a set of tools that help restore and polish your audio with strong visual indicators and spectral editing. Common issues that RX is known to handle are noise removal, clipping repair, and reverb reduction. These plugins come in handy for sound mixers dealing with compromised dialogue in need of repair. The RX suite makes this process easy to approach and makes the results you need more achievable. These results are also processed with great speed, thanks to RX’s Repair Assistant, which can accurately recognize specific issues and adjust them with user-friendly dials.

What RX 11 Adds

RX 11 has three tiers, Elements, Standard, and Advanced. You’ll be able to access most of RX 11’s new features with Standard and Advanced tiers, with iZotope’s next-generation Repair Assistant only available through Elements. Here is everything that RX 11 changes compared to previous versions.

  • Dialogue Isolate [Standard, Advanced]
    • The Dialogue Isolate module has been overhauled with a new neural network and now includes Dialogue De-Reverb, allowing you to control noise and unwanted reverb in real-time. Available in RX Standard for the first time, with the highest-quality mode and multi-band processing reserved for RX Advanced.
  • Loudness Optimize [Standard, Advanced]
    • Get the most out of your masters with the new Loudness Optimize module, an unprecedented approach for controlling the LUFS algorithm to maximize your music’s perceived loudness for streaming platforms. A smart Learn function analyzes every opportunity to optimize your song to sound its loudest and best.
  • Streaming Preview [Standard, Advanced]
    • The new Streaming Preview module lets you hear how different services like Spotify, Apple Music, etc, will adjust your music, so there are no surprises after release.
  • Music Rebalance [Standard, Advanced]
    • A new, cutting-edge neural network allows you to easily create instrumentals and vocal stems from a full mix, prep for a remix, or make changes when you don’t have access to the stems.
  • Repair Assistant [Elements, Standard, Advanced]
    • The next generation of Repair Assistant includes upgraded machine learning for improved quality and speed and additional controls for more flexibility.
  • Mid/Side mode [Standard, Advanced]
    • Visualize and manipulate the center and side components of your audio in the RX app, so you can apply processing from any module to the center and side components of audio, separately. This opens up greater flexibility for repair tasks, making it possible to address issues only present in the mid-channel or just the sides individually.
  • Dialogue Contour [Advanced only]
    • The new Formant and Variation controls let you adjust the character and expressivity of a voice, ensuring your dialogue edits are delivered seamlessly, no matter how many takes are stitched together.
  • Spectral Editor ARA [Standard, Advanced]
    • Use the spectrogram to find and fix issues without ever leaving your DAW. Spectral Editor now includes Gain, De-click, and De-hum processing, along with Spectral Repair. Currently available for Apple Logic Pro (in Rosetta mode) with additional host support coming in a free update this summer.
  • Audio Devices Refresh [Standard, Advanced]
    • Quickly refresh audio devices in Preferences, without restarting the RX app.
