iZotope Introduces Tools and Education for Audio Repair

iZotope has announced two new options — a plug-in pack and online resources — that teach and enable audio repair.

iZotope said the first part is its new RX Plug-in Pack, a kit of four essential audio repair plug-ins that clean up flawed recordings and transform them into usable material.

This starter pack of repair tools includes De-click, De-hum, De-clip and Dialog De-noise. These tools are from RX 5 Audio Editor. The plug-ins can be used within audio or video editing software to rescue recordings from distracting clicks, crackles, hums, distortions and other noises.

The second part is the new RX Audio Cookbook, a free online resource designed to help solve common audio problems. A valuable reference for users of both RX Audio Editor and the RX Plug-in Pack, the cookbook features dozens of searchable tutorials that provide step-by-step instructions, audio examples and videos for rapid repair and enhancement.

Audio post production professionals can use the resource to find solutions targeted to their specific needs, with everything from reducing hum and buzz to matching room tone and ambience.

“We have found that many RX owners only use a few of RX’s powerful features because they just don’t have the time to learn all the ins and outs of the tools,” said Claire Hollenbeck, iZotope’s vice president of education. “We’re excited to offer the free Cookbook: not only will it help our users solve their audio problems in a matter of minutes, but it will also help them discover new features that they can integrate into their regular workflow."

iZotope will be showing the RX Audio Cookbook, the RX Plug-in Pack and RX 5 Audio Editor at BVE in London from February 23-25.

The RX Audio Cookbook is available now for free at rxcookbook.izotope.com. RX Plug-in Pack is available now at www.izotope.com/rxpluginpack and select retailers.

For new customers, RX Plug-in Pack is available for a promotional price of $99 through March 21, 2016. After March 21, the product will be available for a regular price of $129.

For owners of iZotope’s Music Production Bundle, RX Plug-in Pack is available at special crossgrade pricing. Now through March 21, 2016, RX Plug-in Pack can be purchased for $49. Eligible customers can log into their iZotope Account to receive their crossgrade coupon.
