iZotope Announces RX Post Production Suite 3 and Insight 2

iZotope has released RX Post Production Suite 3, the flagship of the RX family product line of software. This refreshed collection provides solutions across the full spectrum of audio post production, from dialogue editing to mixing to delivery for film, TV and other new media.

iZotope said the RX Post Production Suite 3 includes two new product updates, RX 7 Advanced and Insight 2, as well as Neutron 2 Advanced, RX Loudness Control and bonus content from Pro Sound Effects and Groove3.

The seventh generation of RX Advanced, iZotope’s industry standard audio repair and editing suite, builds on years of extensive research in digital signal processing and machine learning. This update supplies the audio post community with deeper control over dialogue and speedy workflow enhancements.

Highlights include Dialogue Contour, which reshapes the intonation of dialogue to rescue or improve a performance. It is powered by pitch correction that is tailored to speech and designed to adjust the inflection of words within a phrase.

Dialogue De-reverb reduces or removes unwanted reverb from dialogue clips using an algorithm trained with machine learning and optimized to separate spoken dialogue from reverberant signal content. Pro Tools AudioSuite plug-ins save time when fixing production audio by staying within Pro Tools and using new AudioSuite plug-ins to access features like De-Rustle and Dialogue Isolate. Multi-channel support tackles audio issues that appear in any or every surround channel effortlessly up to Dolby Atmos 7.1.2.


Insight 2

Insight 2

In the time since iZotope’s audio metering and analysis plug-in, Insight, first launched, surround sound has prompted new channel standards for film and TV, broadcast loudness targets have changed and entirely new systems of measuring audio have been developed. Insight 2 has been completely overhauled to provide thoroughly modern metering.

Highlights include a new Intelligibility Meter that allows a clearer picture of how an audience will experience the dialogue. DSP measures the intelligibility of dialogue compared to the rest of the mix to ensure that the dialogue level can be clearly heard in different listening environments.

Multichannel support analyzes audio in surround sound up to Dolby Atmos 7.1.2 and global loudness standard support sets loudness targets for latest standards including EBU R128, BS.1770-1, BS.1770-2/3/4, ATSC A/85 and OP-59.

RX Post Production Suite 3, RX 7 Advanced and Insight 2 are now available.
