How to use RX Connect with Avid Pro Tools 10, 11 & 12

April 29, 2016

The RX Connect plug-in sends a clip, or multiple clips, to the RX standalone application for editing and repair. This gives you access to all of RX's modules in one place, and provides the benefits of RX's offline processing and visual interface.

To edit audio from Pro Tools in RX:

  1. Open your Avid Pro Tools session.
  2. Navigate to the AudioSuite menu, find the “Noise Reduction” or “iZotope” sub-menu and select RX Connect.

 

Using “Reference” mode in RX Connect:

  1. Select a clip in the Timeline and/or in the Clip List (depending on the Selection Reference mode you are using in the AudioSuite window) that you would like to process.
  2. If you want to send the clip to RX, but do not need to send it back to Pro Tools, select “Reference” and click the “Send” button.

 

Using “Repair” mode in RX Connect:

  1. Select a clip in the Timeline and/or in the Clip List (depending on the Selection Reference mode you are using in the AudioSuite window) that you would like to process.
  2. If you want to perform processing in RX and send your changes back to Pro Tools, select “Repair” and click the “Send” button. RX will open automatically when the “Send” button is clicked.
  3. Your sent audio will appear in a Tab called “Pro Tools 1” that is surrounded by a blue border and a “Send Back” button.
  4. Perform processing on your sent audio and when you are finished, click the “Send Back” button. Pro Tools will come back into focus after clicking “Send Back”
  5. In the AudioSuite window, click the “Render” button to apply your processing to the selected clip. 

 

Additional information:

  • In Pro Tools 10 to 11.3.0, the RX Connect “Processing Input Mode” must be set to “entire selection” and will not function properly when set to “clip by clip.” This setting is in the RX Connect plug-in window, just above the RX Connect logo.
  • In Pro Tools 11.3.1+, there are various user definable input and output behaviors, which affect how you may use RX Connect. Click here for more info.
  • Multiple clips sent from Pro Tools may not end up in expected channel configurations in the RX standalone application. This means that if you are sending audio from multiple Pro Tools audio tracks simultaneously, they may show up incorrectly in RX (for instance, a selection across four mono tracks may show up as two stereo files). If this is occurring, you may need to send from tracks individually rather than as one large selection.
  • When using RX Connect, some DAWs monopolize the system's audio drivers, preventing RX from playing audio through the same output device. The RX Monitor plug-in allows us to bypass this. For more information, check out this article.
