Redesign Any Sound Using Sonic Shapeshifting In iZotope RX6

RX6 is a highly capable sound design tool in its own right. In this video, Timo Preece demonstrates how it can be a creative as well as a forensic tool.  

iZotope's new RX6 suite is rightly known as one of the world's best audio restoration and repair tools. But did you know it is also highly capable when used for sound design purposes? In this short 5 minute video, sound designer and experimental musician Timo Preece looks at the process of sonic shapeshifting: modifying specific parts of a sound's spectral waveform to get interesting processing results.

Using noise reduction and other tools on specific frequencies within an audio file, Timo demonstrates how RX6 can isolate, enhance or otherwise completely change the sound of an audio file, from broad and sweeping to thin and precise for example, in ways that are difficult or impossible to achieve using conventional plug-ins. Check out the other videos in the course to learn even more about sound design with RX6.
