In this video, Joshua Casper from Plugin Boutique talks about the power of module chains in RX7 from iZotope.

This is a video tutorial on how to use Module chains, how to set them up and along the way learn a bit about the breath control, de-ess, de-plosive, mouth de-click and eq modules and also toss in how to load and use third-party VSTs in the RX standalone. All that and more!!

About Module Chiains

The Module Chain is designed to facilitate quick, simple editing, and speed up the workflow of anyone who finds themselves performing the same editing tasks again and again. Module Chain is able to load and save custom processing chains incorporating multiple processing modules, including multiple instances of the same module. You can then select a saved processing chain and fire if off with a single click. This is especially useful if you find yourself repeatedly applying the same modules with the same or similar settings in sequence. Module Chain ships with many presets to help get you up and running.

About Breath Control

The Breath Control module intelligently detects breaths in dialogue or vocal recordings and suppresses them. Removing and reducing breaths in recordings can be a time-consuming process for dialogue editors and music producers alike. Breath Control can help reduce the time spent on repetitive editing without sacrificing the quality of your dialogue or vocal recordings.

About De-Ess

The De-ess audio plug-in and module in iZotope RX 7 attenuates or reduces sibilance, the harsh high-frequency sounds that come from S, F, X, SH, and a soft C. RX 7 includes two modes for handling sibilance: Classic and Spectral. Classic Mode detects sibilants and attenuates them with a broadband gain envelope. Spectral Mode is more transparent, intelligent, and frequency-specific than Classic Mode. Spectral Mode only attenuates the high frequencies where sibilance is most active, leaving the lower frequencies untouched.

About De-Plosive

Quickly remove plosives with the De-plosive audio plug-in and module in iZotope RX 7. Improve the quality of your dialogue by getting rid of plosive pops and mic bumps that can occur during a recording. Intelligent analysis detects the presence of a plosive between the desirable harmonics of a dialogue or vocal signal. It then transparently reduces the plosive far more effectively than simply using an EQ to roll off the low end (which lacks precision and also affects dialogue frequencies).

About Mouth De-Click

The Mouth De-click audio plug-in and module in iZotope RX 7 is a de-clicker that is finely tuned to detect and reduce mouth noises such as clicks and lip smacks. It’s designed for use on longer audio selections, but it can be used to remove individual clicks.
