New Toys: iZotope RX 10 Advanced

The RX 10 audio repair/restoration system from iZotope comes in three versions. RX Elements at $129 MSRP has De-Click, De-Clip, Voice De-Noise, De-Reverb and the Repair Assistant plug-in and De-Hum dynamic mode.

RX 10 Standard at $399 covers about 90% of all audio repair chores you would likely encounter in music production and/or dialog work. Standard and Advanced also have the Repair Assistant plug-in app that provides immediate access to De-Click, De-Clip, De-Reverb, De-Harsh, De-Ess and De-Noise based on the particular source's audio content be it voice, musical, percussion or sound effects. This is super-handy and fast!

Both RX 10 Standard and RX 10 Advanced at $1,199 have the new Text Navigation whereby dialog recordings are transcribed to text that can be searched word-by-word in the time line. Right now it is the English language only and works pretty well, but who knows in the future? This is an exceptional feature that saves time and is useful to search for certain words or phrases within lengthy dialog tracks.

RX 10 Advanced has a new improved Spectral Recovery technology to "fill in the blanks" in your audio. The quality of the re-synthesized high frequencies is now better than ever! Standard and Advanced also have De-Hum Dynamic Adaptive mode, and Advanced has multiple dialog speaker detection when more than one person is speaking.

Lastly, there is now the First Time User Experience in Standard and Advanced—an interactive guide to teach you this deep and complex software system. iZotope now offers for $1,999 MSRP, a complete restoration package with RX 10 Advanced, Neutron 4, Dialogue Match, Nectar 3 Plus, Insight and Tonal Balance Control 2. There are also subscription plans.

iZotope RX 10 Advanced is the very best tool available for any audio repair. It runs in PCs and/or Macs including M1 machines and nothing is better!
