OK, I tried it just now.  When I import a 32-bit float file in RX7 and then export as 24-bit with MBIT+ dither, the result is a 24-bit file as expected.

Gordon, I have no idea what's going on with your setup.  The only difference between you and I is that we are using different brand recorders, but that shouldn't matter at all.

I'll mess with it later but I didn't "export".  That likely is my issue.  what I did was dither to 24bit and then did a "save as".  the saved file does show 24 when open in RX but the actual file is 32.

so yes it was user error.  never used the export feature before as I've never dithered with it.  anyway when exporting and selecting MBIT+ there is no way to configure the dither settings (noise shaping, dither amount).  should I assume it pulls those from what I set in the actual dither utility?

Yes, I believe so.  The same is true for RX's Batch Processing.  It uses the settings you had last configured in the modules you set for the batch process.

which settings could i use to deal with woohoo guy and his woohoo lady? heres ne of the more interspersed-with-music examples

Depending on how important a "clean" recording is to you, it can take quite awhile to get this done. I haven't found a "setting" that you can just input and everything gets cleaned  up.

The way I've been doing this is to turn down the waveform slider so you only see the spectrogram view. Right click the spectrogram and view the spectrogram settings. For me changing the color scheme to "Cyan To Orange" works best for seeing the offending patterns.

For my process, if there's also clapping around the whoo or whistle I'll use the De-Click plugin first. This allows you to see the pattern of the whistle or whoo more clearly (you're gonna want to get rid of the claps eventually anyway). I've found that setting DeClick for "Multiband (Random Clicks)" works best. A general setting for me is sensitivity 3.7 and width at 2.3.

The way I determined this was to highlight the clapping and check output clicks only. I previewed the selection and adjusted until the claps/clicks were either attenuated sufficiently or eliminated and didn't affect drums or the overall sound.

The real time consuming part comes with the whoos and whistles. Expand the spectrogram view as music as necessary so you can learn to see which squiggly lines are whistles and whoos. For me, the paintbrush tool with settings of between 8 and 12 (depending on the thickness of the pattern or how fine I need to get). Carefully "paint" over the offending pattern/squiggly line and either "Replace" or "Attenuate" using the Spectral Repair plugin. I've been using Bands at 512 Surrounding Region at 100 and Before and After at 0.

After I spent several hours working on this, I kinda learned that sometimes you'll want to Attenuate the offending noise first and then Replace or vice versa.

An important thing to also watch for are the harmonics. The Whoos are usually just a single horseshoe shaped pattern. But you'll see whistles that are a loud, bright squiggle and then several fainter squiggles up above. If you don't get those as well, you get kind of a hiss sound.

A general intro to Spectral Repair can be seen at:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QsZSuK6GczA

BTW, as Izotope and someone else on this board has pointed out, sometimes you'll want to render your effect several times. Like for Attenuate, you'll knock down most of the offending noise on the first render and even more on the next.

Once you get the hang of it, you can paint the loudest part of between song cheering and attenuate that. You can also paint some talking and test to see if that helps any.

Finally, one thing I just started to mess with in Spectral Repair is "Pattern". On a recent recording, a woman next to me quite loudly asked me to watch her drink while she left her seat for a bit. By Lasooing her talk and using pattern, I got satisfactory results of having her talking replaced. Unfortunately, she also nudged me and the mics prior to her request so the recording has a huge "clunk" that sounds like a bad edit or skip. Just gonna have to live with that on ;-)

Most of my workflow is similar to yours but I've never tried the "pattern" till now.  Seems to work pretty well to tone down nearby talkers!  Have just started this file so we'll see but thanks for the tip!



You couldn't attenuate the "clunk" out?

Trouble is - it wasn't just the "clunk". This is working on a recording of Jason Bonham opening for Peter Frampton at Sandia Amphitheater. The song where this happened is in "Black Dog" and the house mix was very heavy on the bass. So where the "clunk" was, right where another beat of the song kinda happened at the same time. So when "pattern" eliminates the voice, it sounds like the sound just "jumps" as in a bad edit.

So, this is to me one of those situations where you decide to go for the best of ywo possible evils when dealing with a simple two track recording - I don't hear the talking but the "jump" passes so quickly, I can tolerate that in my headphones.

I don't want this from diverge from the discussion about using "Pattern" in RX7. So I'm posting this just to get that back to the discussion, 'cause this is one of those features we can all benefit from but are one of the least documented.

Vinyl declick with defaults for claps is worth the cost of rx all on its own/

its great for between songs but when i use it for someone clapping along it pulls out the snare a little bit. any help with sensitivity settings for this?

on the vinyl setting I have not noticed this.  In fact I've gotten to where I run it on whole aud files and to my ears I can't tell a difference except the annoying claps are gone or greatly reduced.

quick question I think I know the answer to but maybe I'm missing something.  Is there a way to undo edits in the history without it applying to all edits after that?  What I mean is if I go back in the history say 20 edits back it removes all edits after that.  Any way to just remove say #20 but leave all the rest after that?

didn't think so but was hoping I was missing something!  there should be an option to right click anything in history and remove just that edit.  oh well......
