This makes fine-tuning over-processed sections of audio a breeze — a must-have option after applying blanket processing to long files. You also get improved De-hum, Ambience Match, and Dialogue Isolate tools. Beyond that, you get the AI-assisted processing that RX is renowned for. Enhance. Restore. Repair.
