iZotope announces RX 11 audio software

iZotope, a part of Native Instruments, has unveiled RX 11 - the latest version of its popular intelligent audio repair toolkit. 

Featuring a powerful standalone editor and a full suite of plugins, RX 11 looks to solve unsolvable problems for audio post production, music, and content creation.

RX combines the power of visual-based spectral editing with purpose-built tools for fixing and polishing audio. With the RX Spectrogram, users can visually target specific issues like unwanted reverb, clicks, clipping, hum, and background noise with tailored repair modules. Meanwhile, RX’s Repair Assistant intelligently recognises and addresses specific problems, which can be adjusted with easy-to-use dials.

RX 11 comes in three tiers — Elements, Standards, and Advanced, each offering new features:

  • Dialogue Isolate [Standard, Advanced]

The Dialogue Isolate module has been overhauled with a new neural network and now includes Dialogue De-Reverb, allowing users to control noise and unwanted reverb in real time. Available in RX Standard for the first time, with the highest-quality mode and multi-band processing reserved for RX Advanced.

  • Loudness Optimize [Standard, Advanced]

The new Loudness Optimize module lets users control the LUFS algorithm to maximise their music’s perceived loudness for streaming platforms. A smart Learn function analyses every opportunity to optimise a song to sound its loudest and best.

  • Streaming Preview [Standard, Advanced]

The new Streaming Preview module lets users hear how different services like Spotify, Apple Music, etc, will adjust their music, so there are no surprises after release.

  • Music Rebalance [Standard, Advanced]

A new, cutting-edge neural network allows users to easily create instrumentals and vocal stems from a full mix, prep for a remix, or make changes when they don’t have access to the stems.

  • Repair Assistant [Elements, Standard, Advanced]

The next generation of Repair Assistant includes upgraded machine learning for improved quality and speed, and additional controls for more flexibility.

  • Mid/Side mode [Standard, Advanced]

Visualise and manipulate the centre and side components of your audio in the RX app, so you can apply processing from any module to the centre and side components of audio, separately. This opens up greater flexibility for repair tasks, making it possible to address issues only present in the mid channel or just the sides individually.

  • Audio Devices Refresh [Standard, Advanced]

Quickly refresh audio devices in Preferences, without restarting the RX app.

  • Dialogue Contour [Advanced only]

The new Formant and Variation controls let users adjust the character and expressivity of a voice, ensuring dialogue edits are delivered seamlessly, no matter how many takes are stitched together.

  • Spectral Editor ARA [Standard, Advanced]

Use the spectrogram to find and fix issues without ever leaving your DAW. Spectral Editor now includes Gain, De-click, and De-hum processing, along with Spectral Repair. Currently available for Apple Logic Pro (in Rosetta mode) with additional host support coming in a free update this summer.

  • Multi-seat enterprise licensing

RX 11 Advanced and Post Production Suite 8 are now available with multi-seat enterprise licensing and deployment options for 10+ licences. Users can take advantage of dynamic licensing via iLok Server, and optional annual pricing models.
