Intonation and inflexion are obviously fundamental not to mention that in some languages they have a distinctive function, and can alter the entire meaning of a word. In some languages, like Italian, for instance, intonation might distinguish an affirmative sentence from an interrogative sentence, because the position of the terms is the same in both cases. Linguistics apart, perfecting inflection before could involve micro pitch shifting or formant shifting using automation or external tools. Now we are just a few clicks away from our goal. Insert the module, isolate a section or the entire file and create your custom curve by adding, moving or deleting individual points, and smoothen the final result.
iZotope RX 7 review
Intonation and inflexion are obviously fundamental not to mention that in some languages they have a distinctive function, and can alter the entire meaning of a word. In some languages, like Italian, for instance, intonation might distinguish an affirmative sentence from an interrogative sentence, because the position of the terms is the same in both cases. Linguistics apart, perfecting inflection before could involve micro pitch shifting or formant shifting using automation or external tools.
Now we are just a few clicks away from our goal. Insert the module, isolate a section or the entire file and create your custom curve by adding, moving or deleting individual points, and smoothen the final result. Formant scaling is also available in order to shift specific resonances or attenuations in the spectrum, respecting the natural formants of the human speech.
Dialogue De-Reverb is the new module specifically designed for removing reverb from voice. RX also has a De-Reverb module, but the new one does not require to learn the reverb profile, and it is based on machine learning algorithms.
Its controls include Sensitivity and Ambient Preservation in order to balance the result and to identify how much of the incoming signal can be considered as reverb.
Variable Time and Variable Pitch allow the user to select a portion of the audio file and design a custom shape for pitch or time variations in the same way we described for the Dialogue Contour module. What deserves attention here, is the incredible, crystalline audio quality of these tools. Not to mention that these can absolutely wink an eye to Sound Design. I tested Variable Pitch on an entire song, with both time changes and Preserve Time enabled with the first, the module will behave like a Tape play head changing pitch and speed of the file , and I barely heard artifacts, even with generous pitch variations.
Here, too, possible applications are countless, from extreme pitch shifting on raw sound sources to morph them into bizarre effects, or gentle shifts with time changes which reminded me of the old days of sampling material for musical purposes. Pitch Coherence and Transient Sensitivity controls appear on both the modules, allowing for timbre and transient preservation. Last but not least, the Music Rebalance module, which created a quite a stir when first announced.
The answer is yes. Simply divided in Voice, Bass, Percussion and Other, Music Rebalance allows us to set the Sensitivity of the analysis, letting know the module how much of the incoming signal should be considered as Bass, Vocal, etc.
Low Sensitivity values can reach precise results by completely muting tiny parts of other instruments that might come in the analysis, but at the cost of small artifacts, while if we are after complete clarity, higher values can eliminate glitches, but other instruments might end up in the result.
Sometimes reverb can be an enemy of Music Rebalance, probably because of the long tails which can be confused with the voice or the behavior of other instruments. But despite some artifacts, Music Rebalance works very well and it is capable of extracting a cappella voices from an entire song which is more than useable. Or it can completely reshape a song with problems, and in this, Music Rebalance excels, especially for the idea of changing the balance of a track with just a few and intuitive parameters.
When everything seems lost, and we probably are in front of a single WAV file, without the possibility of touching any fader in the DAW, it can save the day. Repair Assistant Probably the most interesting addition to the whole Suite, Repair Assistant can intelligently analyze an audio file, identify problems and suggest corrections.
In the top right of the RX7 standalone interface, just click on the Repair Assistant tab to engage this tool. It is absolutely wonderful to have a personal assistant which will analyze and possibly speed up even more the work. Repair assistant will ask if the file contains musical, dialogue or other material, then starts the analysis searching for clipping, clicks, hum and noise. In the settings, we can also customize its analysis bypassing one of the problems, for instance, we can exclude the hum analysis.
Clever, fast and powerful, Repair Assistant is another magical element in RX that will make the entire suite even easier and quicker to use, and I personally love how smart plugins are becoming lately.
Conclusion RX7 confirms itself as a must have tool of incredible value, for its vast array of modules, precision, clarity and true gems like the possibility to arrange, save and recall entire chains.
Pro Tools users can now enjoy more AudioSuite tools, and engineers working on multichannel files can be enthusiast too. Having a look around, lately the word Ambisonics is popping out more and more, this is the direction I really hope the next RX will take. Since my latest review of RX version 6 , I must confess I have used the suite almost daily on both musical and sound design jobs, easily rescuing a lot of files, and rarely opening the manual again because of intuitive functions of this software.
Now, with the Repair Assistant, these operations will be even quicker. The new modules and improvements add some shine to the whole tool, especially Music Rebalance, getting even closer to musicians. I think it will be perfected, analyzing and isolating the various parts even better in the future. I can just guess what will come next. Supported plugin hosts: Product page:
