Audiofile Engineering releases Loop Editor 2

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Sep 17, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Audiofile Engineering has announced Loop Editor 2, an update to the simple loop editing tool for Mac OS X.

Audiofile Engineering Loop Editor 2

Loop Editor is the perfect replacement for Apple Loops Utility. It supports all audio file formats that support loop points: AIFF Apple Loops, compressed & uncompressed CAF (AIFF, AAC & Apple Lossless) Apple Loops, AIFF, WAV, W64 and ACID. Additionally, Loop Editor supports forward, forward-backward, and backward looping. Loop Editor is one of the only applications available which supports sustain and release loops.

Loop Editor 2 allows you to view, add, edit and export Slices. It also supports advanced property editing capabilities such as the “Genre” and “Descriptors” properties for Apple Loops files. For those of you that work with Propellerhead Reason and ReCycle, we have included our ReCycle Converter tool which converts ReCycle REX & RX2 files for use in Loop Editor.

The most important addition to Loop Editor 2 is full support for AppleScript. AppleScript makes Loop Editor even more powerful 
by allowing you to automate complex workflows and simplify the process of working with large numbers of files.

Loop Editor 2 for Mac is available for purchase for $29.99 USD for a limited time (regular $49.99 USD).

iZotope releases RX 4 Audio Repair Toolkit

iZotope has announced the release of RX 4, the next generation of its industry-standard audio repair toolkit for Windows and Mac.

iZotope RX 4

iZotope’s award-winning software transforms flawed audio into pristine, usable material by removing noises, distortions, reverb, and other common audio problems. RX 4 and RX 4 Advanced incorporate significant new workflow-optimizing functionality, leaving more time for creativity in audio and video editing. For anyone in audio post production, broadcast, dialogue editing and mixing, independent filmmaking, or music production, RX 4 can make poorly recorded audio intelligible and ready for primetime.

RX 4 Advanced is the result of iZotope’s collaboration with working professionals to identify new ways of improving workflows. They’ve translated these insights into technologies that address common needs and reflect the way people naturally want to work. New features in RX 4 move beyond audio repair—letting professionals enhance their audio.

“Audio quality is a significant concern for media workflows worldwide, spanning professionals in film and TV post production to music mixing and mastering,” says Rob D’Amico, Senior Product Manager for iZotope. “iZotope has developed an audio solution that is equally valuable in the music recording studio, post production suite, on the film set, or in your home editing setup.”

RX 4 enables users to significantly speed up their workflow through the addition of new intelligent modules, time-saving features, and deeper levels of integration with their host.

Changes in RX 4 features

  • Clip Gain: Easily adjust and balance the volume of vocals and instruments with this new non-destructive editing feature.
  • Dialogue Denoiser: Reduce distracting background noise from dialogue and vocals in real time (now a standard feature with both RX 4 and RX 4 Advanced).
  • RX Connect: Streamline the editing process with a round-trip workflow compatible with industry-standard hosts.

For audio professionals in post production, music production, and mastering, RX 4 Advanced boasts additional time-saving features.

  • Leveler: Automatically balance the volume of a mix, freeing more time for creative mix decisions.
  • Ambience Match: Match the environment noise or room tone of two different audio recordings with ease.
  • EQ Match: Ensure a consistent-sounding mix by matching multiple recordings with varying sonic profiles.
  • Loudness: Process whole program mixes or segments to comply with international industry standards and network-specific guidelines.

RX 4 and RX 4 Advanced are available for purchase for the introductory price of $299 USD and $999 USD respectively, through September 25th, 2014 (regular $349 USD/$1199 USD). Users of previous RX versions can log in to their iZotope accounts for upgrade information and special upgrade pricing.
Customers who purchase RX 3 or RX 3 Advanced after July 1, 2014 will receive a free upgrade.

Steinberg Nuendo 6.5

Steinberg has released Nuendo 6.5, the latest version of its post and audio production software which includes a significant amount of professional tools and functionality, such as enhanced loudness processing, bass frequency management and a vastly improved Automatic Dialog Replacement (ADR) taker system.

The optional Nuendo Expansion Pack (NEK) also receives a 6.5 update that complements Nuendo’s comprehensive tool set with many features earlier introduced to Cubase 7.5.

“If I had to single out one feature in this latest point update, I would choose our ADR taker system which has undergone refinements that add to its reliability and expand the possibilities for recording voice and foley,” commented Timo Wildenhain, product marketing manager at Steinberg.

Fredo Gevaert, owner of Temple of Tune, one of Belgium’s leading post-production studios, adds: “Here at Temple of Tune we’re madly in love with the ADR toolset improvements, which we’ve secretly been using for foley recording, too. The track destinations and event naming are massive time savers.”

Nuendo 6.5 features

  • Automated loudness processing to both industry standards such as EBU R128 and fully user-definable settings.
  • Professional bass management including several routing and filter options coming with the new Bass Manager plug-in.
  • ADR Taker 2.0 introduces a major update of Nuendo’s ADR taker system with enhancements for voice and foley recording such as new playback/recording modes, automated naming schemes and pre-record buffer.
  • Nuendo TrackVersions allows for creating, renaming and managing parallel versions of the same track plus many additional features far beyond conventional playlists.
  • Track visibility management speeds up handling especially of large projects by offering dynamic displaying of audio tracks and groups in the project window.
  • Improved AAF Filter now supports even better import/export to Pro Tools and Media Composer.
  • New monitoring and metering section for better source management and better overview on the most frequently used functions.
  • Experience a richer sound with REVelation reverb and Magneto 2, a warm and smooth tape saturation plug-in.
  • Track Quick Controls can now be saved as presets and loaded for immediate access.
  • Steinberg Hub with direct access to user-defined folders and news section for the latest Nuendo product updates.

Nuendo 6.5 is available for MSRP 1,699 EUR. The Nuendo Expansion Kit 6.5 is 249 EUR. Prices including German VAT.
