What is the RX Audio Cookbook?

The RX Audio Cookbook is designed to provide solutions to your common audio problems. It follows a format similar to most common cooking websites. Each solution, or “recipe,” has a step-by-step description of how to solve an audio problem, before and after audio examples, and either video clips or images to walk you through each step.

Before you jump right in, we recommend you explore this RX Basics section. You’ll learn how to get started with the RX application, plug-in pack, and tools and get tips for identifying common audio problems.

What is RX?

iZotope’s RX is software used for repairing, editing, and enhancing audio by interacting with it visually. It is comprised of processing modules and plug-ins, some of which can be used right inside a digital audio workstation (DAW), like Adobe Audition or Avid Pro Tools, or non-linear video editor (NLE), like Adobe Premiere or Avid Media Composer. RX can remove clicks, pops, distortion, reverb, hum, and other noises. It can help with other common audio problems such as inconsistent levels or matching the sounds from different microphones or ambiences.

We’ll use and reference the RX product family throughout the RX Audio Cookbook; however, the knowledge and skills you’ll gain by experimenting with these recipes are useful regardless of the DAW, NLE, or product you choose to use.
