PRESS RELEASE — Cambridge, MA — iZotope today released RX 7, a range of updates to the RX family of audio repair and enhancement software.
The seventh generation of RX builds on years of extensive research in digital signal processing and machine learning. Where RX 7 Advanced and the RX Post Production Suite focus on the needs of audio post professionals, RX 7 Standard and RX Elements solve common (and uncommon) audio issues faced by musicians.
The updates in version 7 represent the latest advances in iZotope’s assistive audio technology, helping musicians speed past mundane tasks so they can focus on creative work. Highlights include:
- Repair Assistant
This industry-first intelligent repair tool analyzes audio to detect noise, clipping, clicks, and more, then offers three processing suggestions at three different intensities to help make fixes faster than ever.
- Music Rebalance
Using an algorithm trained with machine learning, Music Rebalance performs source separation by intelligently identifying vocals, bass, percussion, and other instruments. A user can then individually enhance elements of a stereo audio track, making it possible to adjust a mix without multitracks.
- Remove/Isolate Vocals
Create instrumental versions of songs by removing the vocal elements, or isolate the vocal to prepare a remix without having access to individual tracks or stems.
RX Elements has also been updated with a streamlined version of Repair Assistant, offering a single repair suggestion with a choice of three intensity levels.
Gerry Caron, iZotope’s Chief Product Officer:
With so many of us at iZotope musicians ourselves, we know too well how wrestling with audio problems can ruin a creative moment. With features like Repair Assistant, we’re removing that friction in the creative process—providing tools and insight to solve your problems without sacrificing the flexibility you need to make your own creative decisions.
iZotope RX 7 Standard and RX Elements are available now for $399 and $129 respectively, with introductory pricing set at $299 and $99 through 31 October 2018. RX 7 Advanced is $1199 with a $799 intro price. Owners of previous versions can find their upgrade coupons in their iZotope account.
