Hot on the heels of RX 8 winning the Favorite Audio Editor category in the KVR Readers' Choice Awards 2021, iZotope has released RX 9, the latest update to the powerful tool for audio repair and enhancement, and incorporated it into version 6 of the RX Post Production Suite.
Built on decades of iZotope research, RX 9 tackles emerging audio capture and production issues to restore damaged, noisy audio to pristine condition. The update includes major improvements to some of the most popular RX modules used in audio post production.
Designed specifically for the demanding needs of post production professionals, RX 9 Advanced allows for full control over your audio with even further updates. The new version of Dialogue Isolate makes it easier than ever to extract clean dialogue from its environment, without artifacts, while the new Complex mode in Ambience Match seamlessly connects dialogue and ADR cuts with real background movement and textures—all with multichannel support up to Dolby Atmos 7.1.2.
In both the Standard and Advanced versions, the new Dynamic Mode in De-hum allows users to instantly remove any amount of hum and interference in one pass. View up to 30 undo steps in the new expandable History list, use the new Restore feature to roll back an audio selection to any previous step in your History list, or clean up unwanted sounds directly in Logic using the new Spectral Editor, built on the ARA plug-in extension.
iZotope Principal Product Manager, Mike Rozett, said:
For RX 9, we have revisited some of our most important processing tools and made them even better. We wanted to focus on the fact that dialogue is getting noisier and noisier: from location shoots to warehouse sets, to wireless interference on sound stages, to ADR that's being recorded remotely in cars and closets and kitchens instead of in studios. The industry is facing more and more noise, with less time to fix it. We're here to help.
What's New in RX 9:
First introduced in 2007, RX and the team behind it have been honored with two Engineering Emmy Awards and an Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Scientific and Engineering Award.
