First thing’s first—with any audio issue, you have to identify what it is in order to treat it. Is it distortion? Hum? Noise from a fan? Once you’ve identified the issue, the question becomes: what tools can you use to treat the audio and get the desired sound?

And with the addition of Repair Assistant, iZotope's intelligent repair tool, RX 7 can automatically detect noise, clipping, clicks, and more, helping you solve common audio issues quickly. RX 7's Repair Assistant will analyze the audio and offer different suggestions to help give you the best result. You can even see which processing chains and the order of the modules Repair Assistant used to treat the audio. Learn more in this video!
