Enhanced options for audio pros
If you work in film or television, RX 7 Advanced is a worthy update. It makes recovering a dialogue performance easier than ever, thanks to its Dialogue Contour. Easily reshape the intonation and inflection of a dialogue track and avoid time-consuming ADR. Remove unwanted ambience from dialogue tracks with Dialogue De-reverb. You also get modules such as De-rustle, which eliminates lavalier mic rustle from dialogue, while De-wind removes low-frequency wind rumble from location dialogue. EQ Match creates consistent sonics between two different dialogue recordings, while Ambience Match fills in the constant background noise under constructed sentences and ADR lines. RX Advanced’s Dialogue Isolate module can even extract dialogue from loud environments with background sounds like clanging plates in a restaurant, traffic noise, and machinery. On top of that, RX Advanced supports multichannel audio up to Dolby Atmos 7.1.2, making it an indispensable tool for post production and video game projects.
Repair Assistant makes audio restoration easier than ever
The engineers here at Sweetwater will tell you — audio restoration is a time-intensive endeavor. But not anymore! RX Advanced’s Repair Assistant makes short work of clipping, clicks, and more without the usual tedious trial-and-error workflow. All you need to do is select the type of material, be it music, dialogue, or other, and let RX Advanced analyze the audio. It then gives you processing suggestions to point you in the right direction, along with three different intensities for each. You then review and audition the different suggestions, hit render, and you’re good to go.
Music Rebalance gives new meaning to “fix it in the mix”
Mastering a badly mixed song is an uphill battle. Now, thanks to RX Advanced, that’s no longer the case. Its Music Rebalance tool allows for independent gain adjustment of vocals, bass, percussion, and other elements of a mix — after the project has been mixed. Drums too loud? Vocals not loud enough? Music Rebalance allows you to fix these problems, and more, without requesting the original tracks or stems. Beyond that, it’s great for creating karaoke tracks. Music Rebalance is also available as an AudioSuite plug-in.
