Wanted to chime in that WaveLab has updated to 9.5 and it is a -biggee-. The Spectral Editor now functions, in many ways, even =better= than RX in terms of multiple selections, identifying like sounding blips and replacing them with surrounding material (think Photoshop's 'band-aid'). It's obviously a must have for existing users.

I've been reluctant to recommend WL for a number of years because frankly the UI -sucked- for a while there. But PG turned the UI into a Maserati in V9 and now with 9.5? Oi... if yer in the market for an editor for restoration and haven't considered it before, really, THINK WAVELAB.

After watching it in October I meant to comment on the Curtis Judd RX6 tutorial that Mike S mentioned but it must have slipped my mind. The latest post bumped up the thread and jogged the memory.

At 11:37 Curtis compares the original file to his final denoised file. What struck me was that while the background noise is now lower, so is the voice! This makes it hard to make a valid comparison. I feel he should have gone one step further and gain matched the files so that average voice level remains the same. Then we could make a fairer assessment as to the effectiveness of the tool and the work here.

Despite being not so impressed with the de-clicker in RX Elements, I decided to go for the full RX after Izotope made me (and other Elements users) an offer I couldn't really refuse.

I would have to say that I'm reasonably impressed with Spectral repair which seems to be about on a par with Audition's "fill single click" function. Despite its name, Audition's "fill single click" seems to be able to deal with a wider range of noises than just clicks as I've removed both squeaks and clunks from noisy piano pedals. RX's capabilities seemed similar on the material that I tested it on.

However, I'm really impressed with the Spectral De-noise function which works far more transparently than Audition's equivalent while still giving me plenty of control. I'm also impressed that they include a spectral enhancer as part of the process as this was something that I would usually add with an extra plug-in after removing noise with Audition.

I've not yet tried the other modules but I'd have to say that, so far, I'm finding this version more useful than Elements.

Completely concur. It was a very good offer and came on top of getting Elements for just £29. I've not used anything I can compare it with but it is, in terms of usefulness, nearly up there with Melodyne (different problems but you know what I mean).
