Izotope Rx De Wind

Wind rumble can be a frustrating noise to remove from dialogue. The De-wind module in RX 7 makes removing intermittent low frequency wind rumble from location dialogue easy. Using De-wind across problem areas removes the wind and retains the intelligibility of the dialogue, speeding up your audio repair workflow.

Izotope Rx De Wind

Easily remove distracting wind noise from audio with the De-wind module in RX. De-wind removes the low frequency rumble that occurs when intermittent bursts of wind come into contact with a microphone diaphragm.

So I have a fair bit of experience of trying to make field and location recordings in high winds. For the uninitiated, wind on a microphone makes a rumbly distorting sound. Directional mics are especially bad for it. Here are some examples:

Rycote make windshields in all shapes and sizes, for just about any decent mic or recorder available. Their basic wind jammers ones are cheap (from around 30) but less effective; the more sophisticated ones are more pricey, going up to around 500 depending on the options. My experience is that you get what you pay for: the more expensive ones are more effective.

6. Use omnidirectional mics. They are more resistant to wind than directional mics. DPA 4060 miniature mics are good for this. They still need some windshielding, but in any given windshield they will perform better than a directional mic. I find that the little lavalier windjammers that fit over these mics, like furballs, are OK for a light breeze, but for anything more I have to mount the DPAs in my full Rycote suspension. But then they work great, and the combo seems to be more wind resistant than when I have directional mics mounted in the windshield.

Thank you very much for this Michael, a very good guide for someone like me (pretty much a beginner in sound recording land). I am thinking about getting either the Rode dead kitten or the Rycote mini windjammer for my Zoom H4n. Thing is, I also have a Rode Videomic Pro for recording with my DLSR and was wondering if these wind screens also fit on there. Hope you can help! Best, Thijs

There is a long list of new tools offered in RX6, from de-rustle, de-wind, de-bleed and de-ess to mouth de-click and dialogue isolate. These tools are quite self- explanatory and they work well too. In most cases, the presets in each is enough to get the job done. In other cases, a few tweeks and your tracks are cleaned up. While we were recording a voice over, the talent had a bad habit of smacking his lips before reading each line. This is something that is easily edited by muting the track before each line. However, with mouth de-click, the repair was only one click. What a time-saver!

Just to bring you up to date, the standalone RX 7 Advanced and AudioSuite versions have these function-named modules: De-crackle, De-Hiss, De-plosive, De-rustle, De-wind, Deconstruct, the (aforementioned) Dialogue Contour and Dialogue De-Reverb, Dialogue Isolate, Interpolate, Mouth De-click, Music Rebalance, Spectral De-noise, Spectral Repair, and Voice De-noise.

I would suggest hitting their site and taking a deep dive into each of the modules. Here I will take a look at a few of the new offerings. Be aware that De-wind, De-rustle and Dialog Isolate are only included in the advanced package.

The Crossover Frequency is a fine tuning slider to adjust the frequency of the wind since wind is a broad frequency issue. This is a handy addition to determine the exact frequency needed for the reduction.

I got RX9 advanced, but I am hesitating to upgrade. My favorite in rx9 advanced is dewind for outside mike wind noise, but it seems there is no new dewind in RX10, and dewind is still a as plugin I presume.
