Workflow enhancements, smart default settings, instant audio fixes, and tighter integration with Avid Pro Tools make your repetitive editing tasks remarkably more efficient. RX 5 Audio helps you get more work done faster so you can deliver ahead of schedule every time. The result? You spend less time fixing and more time creatively polishing the overall mix


De-plosive: Instantly eliminate every single plosive from any dialogue track, with total transparency. This is an industry first.

Leveler: Smooth any volume inconsistencies for the best sounding take, with the automatic clip gain envelope created by the Leveler. Optimized for Dialogue with intelligent De-breath and De-ess algorithms, that automatically detect breaths and esses in a dialogue take, and then apply transparent clip gain adjustments while doing the overall dialogue leveling. This is an industry first. Optimized for Music with special noise floor handling.

Ambience Match AudioSuite Plug-in: Quickly fill in consistent ambience beds under constructed sentences and ADR lines right from within Pro Tools AudioSuite. No longer spend hours of time manually looping sections of ambience under a scene with ADR and broken-up sentences.


Instant Process tool: The one-click magic eraser for your audio. From unwanted cough to scene-interrupting siren, instantly paint away any audio problem in RX 5's Audio Editors spectrogram.

Module Chain: Remove distortion, clicks, interference, background noise, smooth out inconsistent volume and ambience. Whatever the multiple editing tasks, they can now be accomplished in a single mouse click to fire off all of your editing tasks at once.

Seamless Integration: Sync and integrate the power of the RX Audio Editor with any DAW or NLE timeline using RX Connect. Clip-by-clip and handles support added for the most efficient Avid Pro Tools post production workflow available.

De-reverb: Reduce some of the reverb from a recorded space in order to make the dialogue useable. Salvage recordings of dialogue containing too much reverb/acoustic space without needing to spend time/money on a reshoot or ADR.

Additional Features

Corrective EQ: Remove harsh high frequencies and whines, rumbles, resonances, distortion artifacts and accurately hone in on any problem frequency areas. Beyond a traditional equalizer, the Corrective EQ offers both an Analog and a Digital mode, in addition to remarkably high (up to 400) Q values for precision filtering of problem frequencies. In addition, the Digital filter shapes allow for more precise cuts than previously possible.

Presets: For the ultimate in sound quality and workflow efficiency, RX 5 Audio Editor includes 60 new problem oriented presets across several modules, including:

  • Corrective EQ presets to help mitigate unwanted resonances, codec compression artifacts and proximity issues.
  • Module Chain presets offering complete dialogue and music editing workflows. Fix everything from digital interference, mouth and mic noises, background noise, inconsistent volume levels to headroom and clipping issues with a single mouse click.
  • Leveler presets to transparently smooth out volume inconsistencies while simultaneously de-essing and de-breathing for complete, polished dialogue edits.
  • De-plosive presets to quickly and intelligently identify and remove plosive/air pops and mic bumps in a dialogue or vocal recording.

  • EQ Match presets to quickly match the spectrum of your audio with anything from top quality VO recordings, to counteracting the boxiness of lavalier microphones.

Signal Generator: Create precisely accurate test tones, calibration tones for post production delivery specs, “bleep” tones eliminate obscenities in a dialogue edit. The Signal Generator can also be used for important sequential editing tasks, from inserting silence to repairing DC offset.

Retina Support: See audio in greater detail than ever before and experience unprecedented visual feedback with retina support for the Spectrogram in addition to the entire RX interface, which also includes a brand new text rendering engine offering sharper, clearer text.

Markers and Regions (Search): Get greater flexibility for those longer edits, with the ability to perform text based searches of any Markers, Regions, and Comments in the metadata of your audio.
