Sound Pros Sound Off on RX
Top sound professionals share how they use RX to repair and enhance their audio
?My job is to help tell a story [...] in a way that the audience doesn?t know we exist.?
Being invisible may sound like a strange goal. But complete transparency is the only option for Scott Gershin, a Hollywood sound designer whose past credits include Pacific Rim, Glory, and American Beauty.
Manipulating sound to create an emotional connection with the viewer, however, can sometimes be a tall order. A multitude of distractions?from production light hum and dolly wheel squeaks to unexpected birdsong?can threaten the integrity of a recording, pulling the viewer?s attention out of the story.
For the tight community of top film, music, and television sound professionals, removing these distractions is equal parts art and science.
The science comes courtesy of RX. iZotope?s award-winning audio repair toolkit has become the industry standard for audio repair and enhancement because of its unparalleled ability to save time and reliably deliver quality results. Post production professionals, audio engineers, and video editors alike use RX to transform previously unusable audio into pristine material.
So to commemorate the launch of RX 4, we recently sat down with working professionals to get a sense of the role RX plays in their day-to-day lives.
The result? ?Finding RX is like finding the Holy Grail,? says Bob Bronow, sound designer and re-recording mixer for extreme reality shows such as Deadliest Catch. ?It did the things that we always fantasized about but could never actually do.?
High praise, indeed. Watch the video above to hear other professionals? take on RX.
