I recorded a couple of concerts at the same venue recently and find the vocals a bit echo-ey (instruments sound good to me).

Should I invest in the standard version of Izotope ($299) and "fix" it with the deverb-functionality or would that be a wasted uphill struggle on a live recording (versus a studio recording)?

Standard  iZotope Rx 7 gives you "Music Rebalance", also.  Might do the trick for you.

Deverb is heavy handed and obvious, I wouldn’t expect satisfaction from it.

Any tips for removing PA hum/noise in RX7? I’ve tried de-hum but it just killed the dynamics. Taped Tim O’Brien at a church and clearly, a church quality PA was the culprit.

Thanks!


Thanks all. De-crackle is amazing! A crackly fuzzy PA 90% better. Big thanks to DPK for showing me the way!

I ended up using spectral de-noise rather than de-hum in a similar situation. Key is to find a couple seconds when there isn't music, just the hum, and train the module on that.

+1 to this.  You want some clean "room tone".  I believe the minimum noise profile needs to be 0.1 seconds, but the the more you have to choose from, the better.

I always use the "Highest Quality" preset, and start with the Level at 6.0 and incrementally adjust up or down from there as needed.  I have found that to be a good starting point.

It is essential that you let your ears be your guide with this tool.  After training with your noise profile, switch between Preview and Bypass to make sure nothing is being negatively affected.  Also Preview with "Output Noise Only" and make sure you only hear noise.  If you hear any musical tones coming through (listen to the bass especially) then either you did not get a clean profile, your reduction level is too high, or both.

Wondering if anyone has had success with 'Find similar event'?

I've tried multiple times with whistles that appear quite similar visually, no love.

Tips?

I am sure that all of these questions will be answered in the book "Audio Restoration with iZotope RX 7," which was announced almost two years ago (before iZotope had even announced RX 7) and which prompted me to begin this thread.  Although the Amazon listing for the book back then showed its cover design, the number of pages and a detailed contents, the book is still a phantom.  I recently found a projected publication date of May 15, 2020 on line at Presto Books, but the publisher, Hal Leonard, no longer seems to list it.  Anybody have any ideas about what is going on here?

^^^ That Find Similar tool does not work as well as one would hope. It certainly does not have "Find and Replace/next" functionality.

Best luck I've had is cleaning... sort of ... very clearly defined, consistently formed and isolated sounds. The clacking of a train over tracks is the only time I tried to use it and the results were not surgical.

The tool will take your first selected spectral shape or shapes and try to match it in subsequent minutes of file... every subsequent minute. It can take tens of minutes. When it's done searching, it marks them, (the next one or all of them) depending on your operational selection. You then either apply repair tools or you don't. There's no picking and choosing.

Prolly the most disappointing tool in the box.

Yeah nothing I ever do would seem to suggest 'find and replace' would work, so I never try.  Each incident is pretty custom in selection.

Now that we're all spending lots of time indoors, it got me thinking: I have an old DAT recording that I managed to accidentally enable auto level control on. I was right in front of the stacks with Core Sound Binaurals. Just imagine how overloaded that sounds.

Would RX7 have any possible tools to help resurrect this?

Not expecting miracles but would love to know if anybody's got some quick tips for trying it out?  It was the only time the band reunited and played full set with many songs not played live by that lineup ever again.

Realize it's GIGO but hoping there might be some room for improvement.
