iZotope has unveiled RX Final Mix, a new plug-in built specifically for audio post production professionals and video editors. RX Final Mix makes it easy to combine your audio stems into a smooth and balanced mix.
iZotope claims their modern, intelligent processing adds space, depth, and life to video sound by only addressing exactly what it needs to be fixed and nothing more. Designed specifically for post, the intuitive, easy-to-use workflow is built around the needs of post professionals with specific presets, visual feedback, and up to 7.1 surround support. We’ve been using iZotope products for years via FutureMusic, and whole-heartedly recommended their audio restoration solutions.
Make dialogue the backbone of your sound, then wrap ambience, sound effects, and music around it to create a consistent, intelligible mix. RX Final Mix lets you balance quickly and intuitively with problem-solving filter shapes, and create overall color changes with post-specific enhancement filters. You can also use ultra-narrow Q settings for precision sonic sculpting.
Sort out the balances between cuts to make a seamless transition. Make dialogue pop and sound effects rumble. However you manipulate audio to tell the story, RX Final Mix enables you to make creative judgment calls without compromising a director’s artistic intent. Orchestrate whatever sonic environment best immerses viewers in the story—enhancing the visuals, rather than competing with them.

RX Final Mix combines multiple post tools into a single lightweight, efficient, and easy-to-use product that tackles all types of program material. Maximize impact by reducing dynamic range, or utilize the Limiter to increase the loudness of your mix without adding distortion — the always-on True Peak ceiling reduces problematic peaks. iZotope’s mastering-grade limiter is more transparent than the competition, conforming any audio to your delivery specifications.
iZotope claims the days of tedious, manual EQ correction are over. Transparently create space with a Dynamic EQ without compromising the integrity of your audio. Dynamic EQ shapes the sound of individual buses and/or your final mix, adding high-end (i.e. dialogue) and low-end (i.e. sound FX) cuts or boosts only when needed. Up to eight nodes of EQ toggle between static or dynamic.
Note: VST, VST 3, AAX, RTAS, and AudioSuite will support mono up to 7.1. AU will support mono up to stereo only. For hosts that support both VST and AU, surround functionality can be used via VST. For AU-exclusive hosts, namely Final Cut and Logic, RX Final Mix supports stereo only.
iZotope’s RX Final Mix Plug-In costs $299 and is available for pre-order.
