izotope question (loud clapping / quiet music)
« on: July 11, 2022, 05:49:33 PM »
I've seen great things about izotope's capability, and for the longest time have resisted learning yet another piece of software...but I think the time has come.

I've been dealing with loud audience sections w/ the envelope tool in audacity, but I've come to realize it's not the best solution, just the one that I know how to use. From what it seems, izotope has a solution for me...

For those that use it:

-how easy is it to pick up?
-which version do I need?
-is this the best option for what I'm looking for?

To reiterate, I'm talking about quiet / acoustic music with large spikes from audience clappingl So generally short sections of loud spikes, outside of the music.

Dirt easy. I've learned 90% of it through trial and error, though there are enough RX experts on here that it's easy to find more specific advice as well.

-which version do I need?

I will leave that to the RX experts, as I will never understand iZotope's naming scheme.

-is this the best option for what I'm looking for?

RX is pretty damn great at this. De-click, multiband, then tweak the sliders to get the effect you want, whether it's muting the claps so they sound more distant or eliminating them entirely.

Longtime RX user here. I recommend you go for the Standard version, as some of the most useful modules for concert recording, such as Spectral Denoise and Spectral Repair, are not found in Elements.

I also made a thread several years back on how do address this problem in both Audacity and RX. RX does a better job, as you would expect. You also could do what's described in that thread with just RX Elements, but I still say RX Standard is well worth the money for Spectral Denoise alone.
