Spectral Editor?
« on: October 03, 2010, 03:36:32 am »

Is there a spectral audio editor (like those found in adobe audition) that is compatible with pro tools and mac? Very powerful tool to have, but i've only ever heard of it in Audition, oddly.

iZotope RX might be what you're looking for.  It is amazing: you can usually remove unwanted sounds or information without a sonic penalty.

iZotope RX IS amazing.
Haven't tried version 2 yet but the Lasso selection is an incredible idea.

Oh! Haha I have it waiting on my iLok with a demo. I will try it thanks.

Yeah I'm looking for the feature that allows you to wipe out unwanted noises like string talk or little blips/scratches/coughs/etc

RX is great. I'm going to buy RX2 this month as it's on special until October 31st.

I used RX recently to reduce pedal noise from a piano recording, which was very subtle but annoying. It did a great job, so I'm buying it for myself.

Another vote for iZotope RX. I've had great success with removing the unwanted noises (click track bleed during breaks or final chord sustains, bad edits resulting in clicks or chopped breaths, undesirable mouth clicks and pops, etc.)

Replace mode often works very well for these fixes, in my experience. Sometimes a pass with Attenuation first, followed by Replace, works better if Replace seems to create a hole in the sound. I find this happens sometimes when I'm wanting to fix a loud click.

+1 on Izotope RX... it's been a lifesaver on some 20 year old film dialog restoration!

A couple of days ago I upgraded to iZotope RX2.  I haven't used it all that much yet, but the DeClicker works even a lot better than version 1 with similar settings.  Not a cheap upgrade, but my hunch is that it will be worth every penny.  I can't be sure, but it might be faster/more responsive than the previous version... maybe.

I just used the RX2 denoiser plugin in pro tools to clean up a guide vocal that was recorded through a faulty preamp. Way better than RX. Without even fiddling around there were very few artifacts, the noise was virtually gone & the vocals were still bright enough. Hope I don't come across this problem with keepers, but nice to know I have RX2 for when I do.

just checked out the Declipper.....

really amazing.  i didn't think something like this would be possible.

i am noticing some artifacts on occasion (though, granted, this is on a dialogue track that is essentially square-waved), but overall....i've never come across another tool that can accomplish this.

will be purchasing as soon as the demo period expires.

Algorithmix Renovator but it's expensive.
