Where did you get this pricing? I'm seeing $99 when I log in.

EDIT: Nevermind, I'm on RX7, hence the $99 upgrade. Upgrading from RX8 is $49.

Audience chatter/yells removal idea: Rather than spectral repair, what about separating the vocal stem and then deleting sections where there's audience but no band vocal, and repairing places where they are coincident? Been playing around and seems pretty good. Seems easier and move complete removal to simply delete.

Anyone tried this method?

Thoughts?

Upgraded to 9 for $49 via loyalty page.

New dynamic mode in de-hum is genius, made huge improvement to recording of Stanley Clarke this week w PA issues.

I have been using RX since version 1.2 and would like to buy and upgrade to rx9 advanced.  What is the best-suggested path without shelling out $500+?  I owe these folks some scratch but I am losing my job next month.

I've found very best prices to be Sweetwater Black Friday. But that's not for a while.

Maybe go to 9 standard and wait for an offer?

What features in Adv are you looking for over std?

I agree that the Standard and wait for an upgrade offer is a good path.

Personally, for my more pedestrian usage, I find that Standard gives me the primary repair tools I need.

To complete any "sweetening", Ozone 9 Advanced has been very helpful.

Curious about your sweetening workflow.

To improve distant vocals, I've been using music rebalance to grab the vocal stem and mixing it back in to the track, with great result.

Curious about your sweetening workflow.

To improve distant vocals, I've been using music rebalance to grab the vocal stem and mixing it back in to the track, with great result.
==========================================================================================

I don’t think that my workflow should be a model for anyone. I’m still learning a lot of this and am amazed at how recordings I have mastered in the past and thought that they were pretty good can now sound not exactly perfect. And as I try new procedures, that can change my approach going forward.

I’m glad grabbing the stem and adding it in is working for you. I haven’t done much with Music Rebalance because it seems my computer can’t handle the resource hit (the CPU fan persistently reminds me).

The recordings I work on are done with croakie mounted AT 933’s on my glasses. So even though I can usually record from a decent location, the raw recordings can usually use a little “help”.

After cleaning up the recording in RX, I’ll bring up Ozone as an RX plugin. Advanced has the Master Assist function which is what I start with. It gives a nice starting point for EQ settings and the like.

First I try to get the levels set to a point where I still have some flexibility to make any adjustments. The Gain Match feature is very helpful to be able to bypass Ozone and compare with the original recording at the same listening levels.

At this point it’s just time to fiddle with the various Ozone modules. Stacking the Master Assist suggestions in different orders or modifying the EQ curves is pretty much the same as what we’d do in RX except, for me, the Ozone modules are much nicer to work with. Each one has presets that give a chance to see what effects various changes can have. They can be modified, turned on and off or isolated.

So, for me, once I get the overall “feel” to be somewhat transparent, I’ll experiment with things like using Low End Focus, adding an extra EQ module or seeing if the Imager can enhance the sound.

It's hard to visualize a workflow in Ozone just by a written description. A demo of some of the newer features in version 9 is available at the Izotope site. The exact URL is 3 lines long for a copy/paste. So google Ozone 9 Demo and visit the official site.

Ozone Advanced IS SPENDY, but as has been discussed earlier in this thread about upgrading RX, that's the route I followed here. Got the low end version and took advantage of the upgrade offers.

Yes, I know this is an RX9 thread but I am still over here upgrading/crossgrading iZotope products.

I discovered the iZotope portal today and added the serial number for my copy of Ozone Elements to it.  Sweetwater has a $199 Ozone Advanced 9 upgrade from Elements 7-9.  I am not sure why upgrades from Standard are $50 more but I'll take it.

Larger number of features and many more presets.  I like to start with Remove Mud preset for clearing up muddy/boomy rooms and tweak from there.  I'm not that hot at starting EQ from scratch and use presets as a bit of a crutch starting point.

First - as rigpimp mentioned about discovering the Izotope portal...
If any RX or other Izotope users have not installed the portal - it's a good idea to do so and check every once in awhile. Program updates for the stuff you own will be installed and you'll be notified of other free plugins that may be available.

I have to add myself to the contingent of non-professional music mastering folks. The pre-sets are a helpful way to start a mastering session.

For users like checht, who are satisfied with RX for separating a vocal stem and reintroducing it to your current music file - the question would be - what do you feel you still need other than what you are getting from within your version of RX. If you're satisfied - you're good.

For me, starting off with the suggestions by using Master Assist, it's kinda like Adobe starting you off with your original file in the Master Rack module. Unlike Adobe Master Rack where you start from scratch with everything, Master Assist gives you a starting point. You can choose to use it or not since you are presented with a preview prior to accepting and using the suggestion as your starting point.

If you do accept the starting point in Ozone, you now are able to stack different modules as with Adobe Mastering Rack which I've not been able to do in RX.

One thing to also keep in mind is that if you're working with 24 bit files and want to use Traders Little Helper to create flac files, you can use RX to export the regions to files in 24 bit. At least the last version of Adobe that I had been using saves as 32 bit float which the version of TLH that I have does not handle.

The other thing I just learned recently in working with 24 bit files for uploads to Lossless Legs is that align on sector boundaries only pertains to files you're converting to 16/44.1 for CD burning. Since you can't burn 24/48 or higher for CD's, sector boundaries no longer come into consideration.

It is currently cheaper to buy Ozone 9 Advanced outright (199.00) than it is to portal upgrade it from Elements (370.00)  Go figure.   :shrug:  Even the academic pricing is higher (249.50)

Maybe I should invest in this. My limited knowledge and skill in Audacity leaves my recordings with low volume after normalizing so maybe this is a bit more of a magic wand?

You mean even after normalizing? If normalizing is actually making the levels quieter, something is definitely going wrong.

In my experience, you don't need RX for things like levels, EQ, dynamic compression, etc., though it does all that nicely enough. It's next-level stuff like "bring up the vocals relative to the instruments" or "eliminate that one guy clapping out of rhythm during the music" that RX is really unbeatable at.

It makes a huge difference. I usually just eyeball the dB level that 99% of the music falls under, then compress the hell (4:1) out of everything above that, which is usually all applause and stray drum hits. it's almost always impossible to hear any change from this, and it can create several dB of headroom for normalizing.

(Apologies for the topic drift.)

I guess it was a price mistake that only lasted for about 40 minutes according to the folks that were actually able to grab it.  Apparently, Izotope had fixed it by the time I posted it here.
