iZotope Announces RX Post Production Suite and RX 5 Audio Editor
At IBC 2015, iZotope, Inc. announced a new RX Post Production Suite containing a comprehensive suite of tools designed specifically to enable professionals to better edit, mix, and deliver their audio, as well as RX 5 Audio Editor, a significant new update to its RX platform. The RX Post Production Suite includes: RX 5 Advanced Audio Editor, RX Final Mix, RX Loudness Control, one-year, all-access pass to Groove3 online video courses & training, and 50 free sound effects (customer's choice) from Pro Sound Effects library. The new RX 5 Audio Editor and RX 5 Advanced Audio Editor efficiently repair and enhance common problematic production audio while speeding up workflows that currently require either multiple manual editing passes, or a non-intuitive collection of tools from different vendors. RX 5s new Instant Process tool lets editors "paint out" unwanted sonic elements directly on the spectral display with a single mouse gesture. The new Module Chain allows users to define a custom chain of processing (e.g. De-click, De-noise, De-reverb, EQ Match, Leveler, Normalize) and then save that chain as a preset so that multiple processes can be recalled and applied in a single click for repetitive tasks. In RX 5 Advanced, a new De-plosive module has been developed to minimize plosives from letters such as p, t, k, and b, in which strong blasts of air create a massive pressure change at the microphone element, impairing the sound. In addition, the Leveler module has been enhanced with breath and 'ess' (sibilance) detection for increased accuracy when performing faster than real-time leveling. Both RX 5 Audio Editor and RX 5 Advanced Audio Editor can be used as a standalone audio editor, as a standalone audio editor connected to your host, or as a plug-in. Supported plug-in formats include AU, VST, VST 3, AAX, RTAS and AudioSuite. Special promotional pricing is available through October 21, 2015: new customers may purchase the RX Post Production Suite for $1,299 US / 1,189 EUR (reg. $1,499 US / 1,369 EUR). New customers may also purchase RX 4 Advanced for a promotional price of $999 US / 929 EUR (reg. $1,199 US / 1,099 EUR). The RX 4 is $299 US / 285 EUR (reg. $349 US / 325 EUR). [source]
Waves Audio now shipping the eMo D5 Dynamics
Waves Audio is now shipping the eMo D5 Dynamics plug-in. The first plug-in to use Waves' new Parallel Detection technology, Waves eMo D5 delivers the power of five state-of-the-art dynamics processors - Gate, Leveler, DeEsser, Compressor and Limiter - in one easy-to-use interface. Thanks to Waves’ Parallel Detection technology, each of the five processors responds to the original signal and to each of the other processed signals simultaneously. This lets users instantly control the total dynamic change introduced by the different processors, ensuring that the final sound achieves maximum clarity without over-compression. The eMo D5 Dynamics also provides a combined gain reduction meter for the Leveler, Compressor and Limiter, making it even easier to monitor and control levels. With its zero latency, low CPU consumption and pure sound quality, eMo D5 is a natural for both live and studio engineers. [source]

Universal Audio and Softube announce Marshall Super Lead plug-in
The Marshall "Plexi" Super Lead plug-in -- the only Marshall-branded amplifier plug-in on the market -- comes exclusively to Apollo audio interfaces and the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform in May 2015, as a result of cooperation between Universal Audio and Softube. The 100-watt Marshall Super Lead Model 1959, commonly referred to as the "Plexi," is one of the world's most celebrated guitar amps. Softube worked with Marshall and recording engineer Tony Platt (AC/DC's Highway to Hell and Back in Black) to craft a faithful emulation of Marshall's own reference Super Lead Model 1959 amp, built in 1967 and captured using an era-correct 1960BHW speaker cabinet in Kore Studios, London.

Free iZotope Ozone 6.1 update
With the free Ozone 6.1 update, iZotope is including powerful processing features and bringing back a popular feature from Ozone 5. New Ozone 6.1 features include Tube Limiting and Adaptive Release modes. Users can add an analog-type sound with the Maximizer's new Tube Limiting mode, which combines the warmth of final stage limiting with the ease and precision of digital maximizing. The resulting audio has a tube warmth while remaining competitively loud and appropriate for modern mastering. With a new algorithm inspired by tube hardware limiters like the Fairchild 670, the Tube Limiter adds a vintage sonic character to Ozone's maximizing algorithm. Adaptive Release helps users produce louder, clearer, and fuller masters. This mode for Ozone's Dynamics module intelligently automates the difficult task of finding the right release times. Based on customer feedback, iZotope has also brought back Module Presets, a highly requested feature from customers who owned previous versions of Ozone. Module Presets help users to experiment with different module settings. Users can more easily load and save settings for individual modules without affecting the settings of other modules. Other additions and enhancements to Ozone 6.1 include selectable segmentation loops, automatic track numbers on export, and sound quality improvements. The Ozone 6.1 update is free for existing Ozone 6 customers. For those who don't yet own Ozone, Ozone 6, Ozone 6 Advanced, and upgrades are on sale through April 9. [source]
