Bought it but not installed yet. The Instant fix looks like a useful time saver. I'm interested in how effective the DeReverb is going to be.

Sorry, ill pass on that one. Already have RX3 and see no MAJOR advantage over
RX3. There are few improvements yes, but not worth the cost for the upgrade.
Plus now using the Spectral Repair feature takes you outside of Vegas.

I have RX2, and will get RX5, because it does "plosives", and I just happen to be having problems with those this week.

Izotope's pricing guide for upgrades originally said that the upgrade from RX4 Adv to RX5 Adv would be $99 with higher costs for earlier versions. But with RX5's release, all upgrades are $299. That's way too much for RX4 to RX5 especially given the limited number of new features which nonetheless will no doubt be attractive to many busy commercial enterprses .

Some of the features listed as new in RX5 Adv are really probably better described as enhancements to features already in RX4 Adv (e.g. leveller, ambience match, corrective EQ, Insight).

Ad now that the $AU has crashed over the last 2 years against the $US (it used to be par but is now just over 70c/$US1), the purchase price is therefore around 50% higher in $AU terms - and $AU450 for the upgrade is tantamount to being ridiculous..

Upgrade from RX2 to RX5 is US$99 - which is AU$136.19 - I did it today.

Just to check, Peter ... are you referring to RX5 standard or RX5 advanced?

The upgrade pricing on My Account certainly shows the standard version upgrade as being $US99, but the advanced upgrade as being $US299. The early upgrade pricing guide on Izotope's website maybe 6 or so weeks ago showed that there was going to be a tiered upgrade pricing for the advanced version - the newer the version to be upgraded, the less $$$ for the upgrade.


RX 5 POST PRODUCTION PRODUCT / PROMOTIONAL PRICE '/ REGULAR PRICE

RX Post Production Suite $1,299 USD / €1,189 $1,499 USD / €1,369

RX 5 Advanced Audio Editor $999 USD / €929 $1,199 USD / €1,099

RX 5 Audio Editor $299 USD / €285 $349 USD / €325

Upgrade from RX 1-4 Advanced to RX Post Production Suite* $599 USD / €545 $699 USD / €635

Upgrade from RX 1-4 Advanced to RX 5 Advanced Audio Editor** $299 USD / €275 $399 USD / €365

Upgrade from RX 1-4 Standard to RX Post Production Suite* $799 USD / €729 $1,149 USD / €1,045

Upgrade from RX 1-4 Standard to RX 5 Advanced Audio Editor** $499 USD / €455 $850 USD / €775

Upgrade from RX 1-4 Standard to RX 5 Audio Editor** $99 USD / €90 $199 USD / €180



I'm really hoping that you got the advanced upgrade for $99, in which case I'll be on to Izotope tomorrow.

Cheers


Conrad

No - this was RX5 standard.

Well, I had a chance to use RX5 editor over the weekend and I must say the two new features I bought it for are certainly worth the upgrade.
The Instant process is a great time save. Trying to remove a noise, it is so much quicker to keep looping round candidates and remove them than go through select/process each time. Only a saving of one click maybe, but saves moving the mouse to a button then back again as well, so time spent reduced by three quarters.
The De-Reverb is certainly no quick fix and obviously nothing is a substitute for recording stuff properly in the first place, but I had some stuff we shot on Friday with a Senheiser ME66. DIstance to subject wasn't ideal (2-3ft) but we were in a typical brick built village hall which suffers dreadfully with reverb - it's pretty noticable with a mic at 8 inches.

Anyway, with a bit of playing around, I've certainly got improved results - far from perfect, but better. No doubt with better understanding and practice I can improve on what I've achieved. However I see this as more of a "reverb reduction" than a "reverb removal" in the same way that "noise reduction" isn't "noise removal".

Nevertheless I still find it quite incredible that this can be done at all.
