Today’s post is gonna be a little out of the ordinary.
After the marathon of last month’s 30-day series, I wanted to take a moment to shout out Izotope’s RX 8. As RX 8 has become a huge part of my workflow, both for cleaning up voice-overs and audio.
Now I think it’s safe to say that WLPR doesn’t spend much time examining 3rd party stuff.
That’s never been the goal here at WLPR. The goal is to help you get more out of Logic Pro X. Not the most out of Waves plugins. Or Universal Audio. Or anything else.
And I 100% believe Logic Pro X has just about everything you need to record, produce, mix and master great songs.
Unfortunately, Logic Pro doesn’t have a tool kit for restoring and cleaning up audio. (Yet.)
We’ve all been there. If you’ve ever found yourself trying to figure out how to deal with:
- Background noise like traffic, or bleed from the metronome in your audio
- Audio recorded way too loud and is now audibly clipped and distorted
- Pops and clicks from bad edits or faulty equipment (or nasty mouth noises in dialogue)
These sorts of problems can be tough to deal with.
And when you start piling on EQ and compression, the problems are only more audible. Not less.
Izotope’s RX 8 is a standalone app and plugin bundle designed to solve these problems. And RX 8 has been a huge help to my daily workload.
But RX 8 can be kind of intimidating. And not everyone needs its mega tool kit for restoration.
So today I’d thought it would be helpful to show you what RX 8 is capable of. And how it could be helpful to you if you find yourself struggling with some of the problems mentioned above.

There are less intimidating options that I heartily recommend as well. Like Acon Digital’s Restoration Suite noted in this post:

It all depends on what your day-to-day looks like. So today let’s examine RX 8.

Thanks Chris, great post, as always. I’m a big fan of Izotope. (I haven’t upgraded to RX8 from RX7 yet) Just a question: why wouldn’t you use “strip silence” in some of these cases, like on the whistle example. Wouldn’t that clean it up entirely?
