The Secrets Of Successful Audio Forensics

iZotope's RX is the go-to application for successful audio repair and restoration. These short videos show you what it's all about and how it can make the impossible a reality.  

iZotope's RX software is one of the leading audio forensics tools available - in fact it's the go-to application and plug-in for audio producers of all levels. But how much do you really know about it? Were you aware for example that it can find sounds within a waveform and let you remove them, or remove noise from a vocal part intelligently? Here are some courses to help you get the most out of it. 

RX 6 Advanced 301 

Joe Albano starts this course with an in-depth look at the standalone RX 6 application where you learn to navigate and customize its unique spectrogram view and user interface. Joe also explains how you can load the RX modules right from your DAW, and how to transfer audio back and forth using the convenient RX 6 Connect plugin.

Next, Joe dives into the heart of iZotope’s RX 6 by giving a thorough description and practical demonstration of every module. You learn how to de-clip, de-plose, de-ess, de-click, de-crackle audio in every possible way! In this short video from the full course, he explores intelligently de-noising a vocal part and how to get the results you need when conventional mixing tools have failed.  

Audio Repair For Musicians

Musicians love to improvise. We often record our tracks in “improvised” recording situations. It’s just the nature of our laptop-based, home/office and on-location lives! However, this style of recording is where all sorts of audio gremlins can sneak their way into our productions. That’s cool, but sometimes we need a little help once the tracks have been laid down to get those gremlins out!

Enter iZotope RX 5 and this “for musicians” course by maestro Matt Hepworth. Matt shows you how to harness the power of RX 5 to counteract hum, buzz, AC noise, unwanted mouth sounds, clipped audio and all kinds of audio artifacts that musicians must deal with every day. Matt thoroughly explains all of the new RX modules and then he shows them in-action as he fixes all kinds of common audio problems.

In this short video, Matt tackles the commonly encountered issue of clipped audio files. Normally these would be the death of a take, but it doesn't have to be that way! Find out how to fix these audio issues using RX by watching the video, and then check out the full course for more pro-level, musician-focused audio restoration tips!
