What's New in iZotope RX 5 Audio Editor?

iZotope are preparing of the release of a new version of RX. Aside from the name change (they've added "audio editor" to the title) there's lots of new features to get excited about.  

When you purchase iZotope RX 4 today you will receive RX 4 as you'd expect. However, iZotope are currently putting the finishing touches on the new RX 5 Audio Editor. When RX 5 Advanced Audio Editor is released in October, they'll send you a free upgrade!

What's New in RX 5 Advanced?

De-plosive: Instantly eliminate every single plosive from any dialogue track, with total transparency. This is an industry first.

Leveler: Automatically creates a clip gain envelope to smooth any volume inconsistencies with the Leveler. Optimized with intelligent De-breath and De-ess algorithms, the Leveler automatically detects breaths and esses in a dialogue take, then applies transparent clip gain adjustments. This is an industry first.

Module Chain: Remove distortion, clicks, interference, background noise, smooth out inconsistent volume and ambience….all at once! Whatever the multiple editing tasks you need done, they can now be accomplished in a single mouse click that fires off all of your edits.

This *is* exciting. I really dig RX and have high hopes for v5. I switched over to Mac from that other OS almost 5 years ago and have been frustrated by the lack of a well rounded, deep audio editor I could latch on to and get on with things. I'm a Sound Forge user since the late '90's and love everything it and Wavelab bring to the table. Peak Pro seemed an obvious choice until Bias' future became uncertain. I really like Audiofile Engineering's work and Wave Editor grew on me, I guess I'm just having growing pains acclimating to Triumph (its successor). And then Sound Forge for Mac found its way into my workflow but still left me sneaking over to the Fusion window running Win7 in the corner so I could slam out edits like the old days. Ah well, 'tis my audio editing soap opera which I believe the iZotopers will finally put to rest. As the stomach turns...

Thanks for the heads up!
