Things are moving over at the iZotope HQ! The Boston audio software maker is preparing its move in the chess game that is the Fall product season with nothing less than RX 9 – the next major release of its flagship audio restoration and spectral editing suite! To that, iZotope is discounting RX 8 Standard, Advanced, and Post Production Suite 5 to provide an upgrade path towards RX 9 for new users. Hint – it’s a free upgrade if you buy ahead of the launch! Of course, prior owners of RX 8 will be treated to upgrade discounts and loyalty pricing, so all is fair in the end. Note that upgrades and crossgrades to RX 8 are also discounted, but the RX 9 upgrade offer still stands.

Alas, we know jack about what’s coming in RX 9. Otherwise, we’d be spilling the beans in typical Gearnews fashion, for we love iZotope products like mumble rappers love AutoTune. I can only presume that iZotope is doubling down on AI-driven features to keep its blade in the spectral game sharp. This year, Steinberg put in serious effort to turn its competing SpectraLayers 8 suite into an example of how AI technology can make production people’s lives easier. In this regard, iZotope has a fantastic foundation to build upon with the assistants integrated into oZone and Neutron. Those were a lifeline for guys like me who still feel challenged by the whole white-gloved mastering and frequency placement thing. It’ll be a long while before the tech exhausts its potential. Anyway, stay put for more information as it trickles down the interwebs…
