Are you kidding me!!
I just used the iZotope RX4 plugin for the first time on an audio mix and it is ridiculously, over the top, awesome. I’m not just saying this to thank the folks at iZotope for sending me a copy to try out, I’m saying this because cleaning up dialogue and narration is a time consuming often laborious task that the RX4 handled with ease, and the tracks sounded fantastic!
When a piece of software comes out that works, and I mean really works, I want to share that product with anyone who will benefit. Here’s what just happened to me that’s gonna change the way I approach cutting dialogue and narration.
I was cleaning up a narrative for a show I was cutting, you know, volume nodes up and down to clean out breaths, tongue clicks, lip smacks, and studio background noise, when it occurred to me as I finished up that I had received a copy of iZotope’s RX4 software that’s designed specifically for this purpose. So just for kicks, I grabbed a section of unedited audio, dumped it into an empty track, opened the RX4 plugin, clicked on “Dialogue Denoiser” and with a couple unambiguous adjustments all was done! I couldn’t believe it! I had just spent over an hour meticulously cleaning narration, and this plugin, I hate to admit, did a better job in minutes!
The results were impressive to say the least. I spent another hour messing with a couple other plugins the RX4 comes with and they were just as simple to use and did a great job at what they are aptly named.
Here’s a list of the iZotopes RX4 plugins:
- Dialogue Denoiser
- Humm Removal
