Izotope Machine Learning
While some musicians oppose these advancements, others embrace the creative power and time-saving features. Join A3E in a case study on the development and application of iZotope’s latest release Neutron, and explore its powerful use of Machine Learning for professional mixes of your music in your favorite DAW. Sep 15, 2018 It uses iZotope’s machine learning system and I’m very curious to hear what the results will sound like. Dialogue De-reverb is a specific reverb removal module, designed to reduce or remove unwanted reverb from dialogue clips.
New software, which combines machine-learning with reverb technology, allows users to do hours of audio post work in seconds
iZotope Inc., Cambridge, MA (November 5, 2019) - iZotope, Inc., the experts in intelligent audio technology and makers of two-time Emmy Award winning software RX, today launched Dialogue Match, the first tool to automatically learn and match the sonic character of dialogue recordings. It is also the first product to combine brand-new machine learning from iZotope with ground-breaking reverb technology from Exponential Audio’s product line, which was acquired by iZotope earlier this year.
Re-recording mixers that are responsible for delivering the final sound mix for films and television programs, often need a way to quickly match dialogue from lavalier, boom mics, and ADR (Automated Dialogue Replacement), in order to create a seamless and cohesive dialogue performance. With Dialogue Match, users can analyze audio to extract a sonic profile, then apply the profile to any other dialogue track for fast and easy environmental consistency in scene recordings, allowing them to complete the tedious process of matching production dialogue to ADR in seconds, rather than hours.
“Users who have tested Dialogue Match are telling us that it will change the way they approach dialogue editing forever,” said iZotope’s Senior Product Manager, Mike Rozett. “We are very excited to collaborate with Exponential Audio founder Michael Carnes on this product and we’re both convinced that this technology will revolutionize the laborious process of getting continuity in dialogue.”
For re-recording mixers and ADR editors, Dialogue Match is an unprecedented time-saver. Tonal characteristics can be matched between a boom and a lavalier microphone, localized audio can automatically be matched to the original language, and global snapshots and reference profiles can be saved or loaded.
Dialogue Match Features
EQ Module leverages the EQ matching mechanics of iZotope's Ozone 9 to quickly learn and match the tonal and spectral characteristics of dialogue.
Reverb Module Reverb Module uses brand-new reverb matching technology, powered by machine learning, to capture spatial reflections from one recording and accurately apply them to another via Exponential Audio's clean, realistic reverb engine.
Ambience Module analyzes the spectral noise profile of a recording, and identifies and re-creates room tone for dramatic acceleration of the ADR workflow.
Dialogue Match Specifications
Dialogue Match is now available as a standalone AudioSuite Plugin for $599 MSRP. iZotope does not currently support its use for any host application other than Pro Tools 11 or later.
Dialogue Match will also be available as part of the following bundles.
- Post Production Surround Reverb Bundle ($1,199 MSRP)
- RX 7 Advanced Reverb Bundle ($1,499 MSRP)
- RX Post Production Suite 4 ($1,999 MSRP)

What is assistive audio technology, and how does it work?
Since the 2016 release of Track Assistant in Neutron, iZotope has been developing assistive audio technology designed to remove the guesswork from audio production and make it more efficient. One of our major goals as a company is to find solutions to eliminate time-consuming audio production tasks for our users so they can focus on their creative visions.
Our assistive audio technology intelligently analyzes your audio and provides custom presets that are tailored to the sound you’re going for. We do this by combining years of intelligent digital signal processing (DSP) algorithm development with modern machine learning techniques to analyze your audio signal and make suggestions accordingly.
Generally speaking, our assistive audio technology consists of three pieces:
Record Touch Instruments in GarageBand for iPad. You can record your Touch Instrument performances to play and use in a GarageBand song. When you record a Touch Instrument, your recording appears in a region in the instrument’s track in Tracks view. You can edit and arrange your recordings in Tracks view. You can also record other music apps on your iPad, including both instruments. Use ipad as instrument in garageband. Aug 19, 2011 Along with being easy to connect and use, JAM features studio quality sound. Using Apogee's PureDIGITAL technology JAM makes a direct digital connection to your iPad and delivers your guitars true.
- High-level user preference: before running our assistive tech, we ask you to broadly characterize the sound you are going for and the amount of processing you wish to apply. This way, the assistant can get a sense of your desired aesthetic and how drastic a change you are looking to make to your audio.
- Machine learning: a machine learning algorithm characterizes your audio in some task-specific way (take the instrument classifier in Neutron for example). This information allows us to line up the steps of processing that your track will undergo, and potentially dial-in settings for some of them.
- Intelligent DSP: we further analyze specific properties of your audio to set parameters of different DSP modules in your processing chain. We do all of this taking into consideration your specified user preferences. For example, we may analyze the dynamic range of your audio in certain ways to select parameter values for a compressor. The parameters we come up with should hopefully provide the desired amount of consistency for your track.
Who is assistive audio technology for?
Assistive audio technology can be beneficial for amateurs and professionals alike. For the audio amateur, it breaks the overwhelming barrier to entry in mixing and mastering, quickly getting your tracks sounding great in a few clicks. It is also an invaluable educational resource, from which budding producers can learn how to make informed decisions by analyzing choices made by our assistants on different source materials. For the seasoned veteran, our assistive technology minimizes time-consuming cleanup work so that they can hone in on the creative side of things, adding your signature expertise.
