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.

Patchpool releases Best Of Iris Subscription Vol. 1 – Strings & Voices

Best Of Iris Subscription Vol. 1

Patchpool has announced the release of Best Of Iris Subscription Vol. 1 – Strings & Voices, a collection of 83 patches taken from the Patchpool Iris Subscription archive.

This first library excerpt comprises sounds which are derived from samples of string instruments (plucked and bowed) like acoustic and electric guitars, violin, viola, cello, piano, psaltery, harps, oud, mandolin and bowed vibraphone samples.

Then there are patches making use of orchestral samples recorded during rehearsals and performances of my own orchestral music and some backstage recordings and you will find vocal patches with samples of solo voices, vocal textures, field recordings of temple monks and nuns, crowds, kids and even a singing sikh.

All samples involved are embedded in the presets using the “Export”-function in the Iris Browser. After uncompressing the downloaded RAR-archive just drop the entire download folder into “Iris Library->Patches”.

The library is available for purchase for 32 EUR via the “Buy Excerpts” tab on the Iris Subscription page.
