Review: iZotope RX 8 Advanced for Audio Repair – PostPerspective
Cory Choy with Post Perspective takes a look at iZotope RX 8 Advanced with a focus on Spectral Recovery. Can it really turn “grainy, inarticulate recordings into crisp, clear conversations”? In a world filled with Zoom and ZOIP calls, this could be extraordinarily helpful. Cory also goes through some of the other new features that were added.
Here’s an excerpt from the review:
RX 8 is not the heftiest of all RX updates (like the one that introduced Ambience Match) for post sound pros. However, it is a substantial update, and if you make your money editing and mixing audio for film, television and radio, I think it is worth the upgrade price. If you’re super low on funds, you could probably hold onto your copy of RX 7 a little longer and see what RX 9 has to offer.
Designed specifically for the demanding needs of post production professionals, RX 8 Advanced continues to be the industry standard audio repair tool used on movies and TV shows to restore damaged, noisy audio to pristine condition. Trusted by the top audio pros around the world, RX 8 continues to lead advances in audio signal processing and machine learning that were once unimaginable.
In RX 8, we’re giving you more control over your audio. Use Spectral Recovery to restore discarded frequencies in audio from compressed live-streams or video calls, or use the all-new Wow & Flutter module to fix pitch drift in music recordings. Break out Guitar De-noise to tighten up your guitar recordings, an even more powerful Music Rebalance for stem separation and mix tweaking, and the revamped Loudness Control module. Unleash the overhauled Batch Processor on audio of any kind for simultaneous multi-file editing, reformatting, and exporting.
