RX 6 Key Features

Machine learning the impossible
Years of research and innovations in machine learning allowed us to solve some of the most impossible repair issues in audio post production, including lavalier mic rustle and noisy dialogue backgrounds. Only RX 6 Advanced now includes both of these jaw-dropping new features.

Choosing the Right RX Modules for Audio Repair

First thing’s first—with any audio issue, you have to identify what it is in order to treat it. Is it distortion? Hum? Noise from a fan?

Once you’ve successfully done so, the question becomes: what tools can you use to treat the audio and get the desired sound?

Successful audio repair often depends on the correct sequence of processing steps. For example, impulse noise repair algorithms like RX’s Mouth De-click module, should be run first, ahead of any hum or broadband noise reduction.

We suggest the following flowchart of processing steps for audio repair as a general guideline. It demonstrates that for many repair problems there are multiple modules in RX that can be used alternatively or in sequence.
