WORKING WITH IZOTOPE’S RX 8
Like painters who have their “go to” set of brushes and paints, audio professionals also have their own set of tools which they lean on during the creative and technical process of creating a soundtrack. This month we will be exploring the audio world with three top sound professionals as they share their experiences and discuss their use of iZotope’s latest version of their industry standard plug-in, RX 8. Learn how they use this essential toolkit to help them mix, master and restore high level projects and create stellar sonic universes.
