Today, we get to try out the brand new iZotope RX 8! We have been using the RX 7 since it came out, and are very excited to try out the new features they have added to the latest update! From Music Rebalance, to De-Hum, and De-Verb, there are tons of great features in this plugin.
One of the big upgrades in the RX 8, and one of the things I really wanted to try is the Music Rebalance. This gives you the ability to go in and separate elements out. You can separate out the vocals, the bass, the percussion, and more! This is a great learning tool, and would be great for learning a song! If you are a singer, for example, you can separate out all the elements and then mute the vocal so you can sing along with your favourite songs, and then you now have a soloed vocal as well, so you can learn all the parts!
Another new feature is the Guitar De-Noiser. This removes buzz and noise from bass and guitar parts. It is a really great feature for an acoustic or electric guitar part that had ultra purcussive elements in it from the pick hitting the strings, for example.
There are tons of other amazing features available in the RX 8, including De-Hum, De-Verb, and many more! If you are mastering anything, this is going to be an amazing tool. Think of the amount of work you could get just from people going back and giving you old cassettes, and mini discs, and old CDs, and all different kinds of recordings. The fact that you can take it and clean it up and then give it back to people is amazing. It makes me want to go back through all of my cassettes from when I was a kid and just clean them up!
