iZotope is now shipping RX Loudness Control their offline loudness plug-in. Part of iZotope’s RX family of post production products, RX Loudness Control analyzes and renders a mix for loudness compliance “in faster than real-time,” while preserving the dynamics of the mix.
RX Loudness Control automates an “historically tedious” workflow with what iZotope is lauding as the fastest, most transparent, and most accurate processing available today: “Audio or video post production professionals working for broadcast can now access intelligent, automatic loudness compliance with just two clicks: one click to analyze audio, and one click to comply.”
Built with audio professionals and broadcast facilities in mind, RX Loudness Control encompasses extensive presets for the latest and most significant loudness standards, including BS.1770-1-3, EBU R128 s1, and ATSC A/85. Users also have the ability to create and save their own presets for a unique television spec if needed.
A history graph and loudness report inform the user whether audio is within the appropriate tolerance, and if not, illustrates where overflows may be occurring. In order to both document and prove loudness, loudness history can be exported as a .CSV spreadsheet.
As a plug-in, RX Loudness Control is a more comprehensive tool than the Loudness module in RX 4. Features include support for surround sound (up to 5.1) and the EBU R128 s1 standard, the ability to generate a .CSV loudness report, availability on the Adobe CC platform and as an AudioSuite DPM/AAX plug-in, and a new and faster loudness algorithm.
Compatibility. The audio technology in RX Loudness Control is available via an AudioSuite plug-in for Avid’s Pro Tools 10-12, Avid’s Media Composer 7 (7.0.4), and 8 (8.3.1); as an Adobe Extension for Adobe’s Premiere Pro CC 2014 and Media Encoder CC 2014; and on both OS X (10.7+) and Windows (7+).
