I sprang for RX7 standard today so I have some work to do on some of my older master tapes that really suffered from a lack of experience when I first got started.

I was ripping a CD tonight, and a bit of the last track on the disk had a slight "tic - tic - tic - tic" to it, from a pit or scratch or something.

I used a couple of passes of RX7's "De-click > Fix Discontinuous Waveform" on the offending minute or so, and also a pass of "De-Click > Periodic Clicks" to repair the section.

I'm finding all sorts of neat things Standard can do.

Any interest in building a searchable iZotope Wiki?
A possible goal would be a roll-out into a "self-published" eBook on Amazon with the proceeds funding Tapersection com.

RX8 is out now, but it doesn't look like it gives us anything we would use more than RX7 did.

I read that they had made improvements in the separation algorhitms for the music rebalance function. Not sure if it is worth an upgrade though. I've been using that quite a bit in rx7, mostly to get the vocals up...

I'd be very curious about this.  Initially I was enormously impressed by the ability of Rebalance to bring up voices, it works great on short sections.  But I found that longer sections led to ear fatigue, something was not quite right.  If this is "fixed" to some extent it might be worth the upgrade for me.

==================
Recently I added Ozone 9 Advanced to my RX 7 Standard and noticed an improvement in the Ozone Music Rebalance module over RX 7's. The difference isn't major major but enough so that I've relied on it more in Ozone 9. The only part of Rebalance missing in Ozone 9 over both RX 7 and 8 is "Other".

Based on these posts, I checked out the feature page for RX 8 (I didn't even know it was out) and for my pedestrian usage of RX, I think one of the biggest improvements would be the Horizontal Scrolling. That would be a huge improvement in maneuvering when you're really zoomed in working in the Spectrograph view.

The other new features look like they would be good for folks doing podcasts or converting tapes to digital.

But since it doesn't look like we have any concerts coming up for the foreseeable future and all I'm doing is going back and seeing what I can improve with shows recorded in the past, I'm happy with RX 7 Standard and Ozone 9 Advanced.

I ran some comps on the rebalancer. I found the RX8 set at "best" was much more consistent on pulling the desired stem. However, it took a LONG time to process. Very much a dial in and let it run overnight, but I was impressed with the improvements.
Audio: Countryman B3 + AT853(hypers/cards/subcards) + SBD feeds
Wireless Receivers: Lots of those
Antennas: Lots of those
Cables: Lots of those
Recorders: Cymatic Utrack24, Cymatic LR16, RME Multiface, Zoom F8, (3) Tascam 680, (2) Tascam 2D, Zoom H6, Zoom H4n, and a graveyard of irivers/nomads/minidiscs.

Anybody know of a way to join multiple files into one single file in RX7? I'm looking for something similar to "Open Append" in Audition.

I tried rx8 standard rebalancing on an old recording last night. I adjusted vocals up, bass and percussion down a bit. Rendering on setting best for the approx 60 min recording took about 2 hours on my 2018 macbook pro which is pretty well spec'd. So they have definitely made some changes since rx7. The result, however, seems to be well worth the wait... The track separation seems quite a bit more precise. I am looking forward to testing this on some more old recordings  :)

Working on Van Morrision @ the Greek 1986, km84i's > D5 FOB DFC. Tested out vocal isolation on rx7 std. vs demo version of 8. The difference is significant.
Samples below.

Having used 8 for a little while now, I've got to say that horizontal scrolling is so nice! I hadn't expect it to make such a difference, but it does :)

That is certainly way better than anything I was able to do with RX7. Nice job.
