RX 6 — The Newest Generation of iZotope’s Industry-Leading Audio Repair Software
iZotope RX 6 is the platinum-standard, audio restoration software that the professional music and post-production industries rely on
You’ve heard its effects on numerous feature films, broadcast television, and hit records . . . or should we say, you haven’t heard it, since RX 6 works silently in the background to remove unwanted noise, clipping, distortion, and other unwanted sounds in order to present productions in their cleanest possible form without unwanted artifacts. To achieve these miraculous results, iZotope employs the latest research technologies, including machine learning, which is a form of artificial intelligence that allows computers to learn autonomously as they are exposed to new information—a very useful thing with the complex, ever-changing waveforms of audio and Foley.
The RX 6 family of sound restoration plug-ins can operate in standalone with the RX Audio Editor, which lets you visually identify and repair problems, or in real-time with the RX 6 plug-ins in your DAW or NLE (non-linear editing system). RX 6 comes in three versions; Elements, for home studios and podcasters; Standard, for music and smaller post-production studios, and Advanced for post production professionals and dialogue editors.
iZotope RX 6 Elements Bundle
Elements is the essential package of restoration plug-ins for home studios and podcasters
Restoration software may not be the most glamorous of plug-ins, but they are essential tools for the small studio that wants to compete sonically with the majors. Two problems that plague home studio recording is unheard clipping that doesn’t show up on the DAW meters (this occurs when equalizers act as reconstruction filters at the DAC output, where the DAW meters can’t read it (floating point processing can cover a multitude of sins). The other problem is the high THD+N of budget preamps, which creates a build-up of noise as track counts increase. Another issue is balanced AC power, which is beyond the budget’s of most home studios. And last, but certainly not least, vocals recorded with budget condensers in noisy rooms make all the difference between home and professional recordings. RX 6 may not be able to change the sound of your mic, but it can certainly clean up everything else that stands in the way of stellar vocal tracks. The RX 6 Elements bundle solves these problems with four plug-ins.
- Standalone spectral editor
- Voice De-noise plug-in removes unwanted background noise
- De-click plug-in eliminates clicks and pops
- De-hum removed buzz and 50/60-cycle hum from grounding issues
- De-clip plug-in fixes clipped audio files
iZotope RX 6 Elements is an affordable bundle designed to bring home recordings and podcasts up to professional standards. For more information, call or chat with your Westlake Pro sales consultant today.

iZotope RX 6 Advanced Bundle
Just what you would expect from a couple of lads from MIT: Years of research and innovations in machine learning (a form of artificial intelligence) allowed iZotope to solve what were considered impossible repair issues in audio post production, including clothing rustling against lavalier mics and noisy dialogue backgrounds. Only RX 6 Advanced includes both of these astounding solutions.
RX 6 is the total package, comprising 15 “advanced,” plug-ins, plus a standalone spectral editor, that gives post-production houses and world-class sound mixers a powerful arsenal of sound-restoration modules designed to bring out the very best in any production—we’re talking the stuff of Oscars here. As anyone who has worked location sound for film knows, the real world can be very intrusive with lav mics rustled by the talent’s movements; wind blowing across boom mics, whose dead kittens (blimps) attenuate highs and don’t eliminate wind-noise entirely; and dialog masked by noisy environments. RX 6 Advanced saves the feature film mixer’s sanity and hairline with its visionary machine-learned AI plug-ins, including De-rustle, De-wind, and Dialog Isolate, that can solve these problems with near-supernatural results, often with a single click. iZotope RX 6 is the platinum standard for dialog editing, audio repair, and noise reduction. Once you hear the results of RX 6, your next words will be, “I’d like to thank the Academy . . . “
iZotope RX 6 Advanced in one take:
- Advanced-only tools featuring machine-learning AI technology
- All RX 6 Standard plug-ins included
- De-rustle module removes clothing rustle from lavalier mics
- Dialogue Isolate separates dialog from noisy backgrounds
- De-wind removes the wind beneath your blimp
iZotope RX 6 Advanced is for post-production facilities and studios working at the highest levels of the film industry. For more information, call or chat with your Westlake Pro sales consultant today.
