    DeClipper in iZotope RX 2 is nothing short of amazing

    I was asked to do what I could to save the recording of a new professional wind ensemble in the SF Bay Area, which had been recorded by student help at San Francisco State University, with too much gain.

    The audio was rather clipped. It affected any passage greater than
    mezzo forte and sounded obviously distorted for many seconds at a time.

    I tired using the manual sound repair tools in SonicStudios soundBlade
    app (which has done many other kinds of truly wonderful frestorations
    and is a staple in the forensic audio community) without any success
    in this situation.

    I also had access to Adobe audition, which did a pretty good job
    in very short order, but still left audible residue in the most damaged
    sections.

    But that was totally eclipsed by the job that RX 2 did, which completely repaired the audio and left no tell-tale trace that there had ever been
    a problem at all.

    "Blown Away" is not overstating my reactions (or that of the conductor) to the results!

    No film maker should be without this

    I'm a film student that is specializing in sound for film. I saw the demos online of this program and thought I should get it considering the price. I worked fine but got put farther back when I Got the waves rest plug. The I had to do son Dialogue editing for a student short film and OH MY GOD! Scenes that I thought had unusable dialogue where brought back to life after relay working with the spectral repair. There is nothing like this when it comes to repairing dialogue. GET THIS!

    How can RX2 be THIS good?!?

    I have been using iZotope's RX2 for almost a month, now, and I still am AMAZED at how versatile it is! I am, as the rating suggests, blown away with how well it allows me to remove extraneous noises from my recordings.

    If you are thinking about getting RX2 to help you clean up your audio files, JUST DO IT! You will not be sorry, as this is a killer app for all that ails your recordings. From chair squeaks, to page turns, and sneezes, RX will help you handle them all!

    THANKS, iZotope, for making me look good!

    iZotope RX 2 software works a small miracle

    I was asked to help a friend remove noise from a recording made over SIXTY years ago, on a WIRE RECORDER (like the Germans invented in the early 20th century). The recording is of him, in Italian, at about three years old, talking with his mother and father, and has a LOT of noise, cracks, pops, etc. This may not be the typical use of the iZotope RX 2 software, but it worked very well. Seeing a visual indication of what the software "learned" about the noise floor at any given spot on the recording was helpful, and there are several useful controls (threshold, smoothing, etc.) that gave good noticeable results. After the RX 2 software did it's magic, it was like going back in a time machine, listening to a conversation from the distant past. Of course, no software can make an old recording this bad sound perfect, but for the price I thought the RX 2 did a very good job. I've use Bias Sound Soap before, which is also good, but the RX 2 seemed to do a better job in this case.
