How many times have you recorded something and not had the level set correctly, but the first take was – as always – the best take? Or perhaps, you didn’t notice any noise on the line in your headphones, but now it’s mixed and hearing it back on the monitors you hear a hum which isn’t acceptable? There are several affordable audio restoration tools out there, but often the quality of what you’re left with can be worse than the original. Maybe this is your ideal solution, featuring a few select modules from iZotope’s well-renowned RX package, but at an affordable price.
Audio restoration tools have become increasingly similar to a magician’s favourite trick. Technology has advanced incredibly in terms of ability, but the demand for tools to solve digital audio problems is much higher. As many often record in less than ideal situations, or any studio time that is budgeted for is very short, there isn’t always the luxury to get back and do it again if there’s an issue. One of the players at the top of this game for the last few years is iZotope with its RX software, which I can vouch for being simply incredible. It has got me out of jail countless times.
The RX Plugin Pack contains 4 modules from the full RX suite; De-click, Dialogue De-noise, De-hum, and De-clip. iZotope state that these are lifted directly from the full RX package offering the same high standard of quality. These plugins can be run in most DAW’s in AU, VST, RTAS, AAX (32bit and 64bit) formats to straighten out distortions, hum and background noise as well as clicks.
The full RX package is truly remarkable, trust me. Although I’m mostly mixing, I find I spend some time in RX nearly everyday as it’s such a powerful tool. I think this choice of modules feels slightly post-orientated and not solely aimed for music, but for only 129 USD I don’t think anyone can complain considering the quality. Grab yourself some magic with their special offer of 100 USD until 21st March.
