iZotope RX 8 Explained® is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 17 .
Rated 3.0 out of 5 by from Nice overview for the absolute beginner, better you use the manual for more. An overview of al the modules in RX8 advanced but nothing more than that. I was expecting more tips & tricks than just an overview. Ironic, the quality of the teaching voice was not nice to hear during a longer time and sometimes unrealistic. It sounds amateuristic while the software is professional.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from Great Tutorial! Extremely helpful. Reviewing one video alone from this tutorial helped me solve a major issue I had with clicks on a track I recorded years ago. I'm looking forward to going more in depth. Thanks for this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from The teacher is hired! Was amazed this stand alone/plugin has so many versatile tools. Some bright minds put this together and brought it up to this version. A whole career could be had using this tool alone. Well presented by Gary

Rated 1.5 out of 5 by from You can do better. After watching all the RX explained series since v2, this one is a total mess. Much of the examples are artificial and not "real world", author helplessly tweaks parameters not bothering to try to explain why they tweak them (they just name params, paraphrase their function from manual and that’s it) and tries to solve everything in one pass. Clearly there are much less useful examples, tips and tricks like in courses by Mike Thornton used to have or clever use of program abilities like in Scott Dugan’s videos. For those who are starting to use RX, it’s okay, but don’t expect anything more than that. I hope the new tips & tricks course will have something more than this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Extremely Useful It does what it sets out to do, explain very module in RX8!

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from Good entry level tutorial This is a good starting point tutorial that scratches the surface and does a good job of familiarizing and introducing you with the basic functions of each RX module with real world examples of how you can best utilize these tools but these videos do not go into great depth on how you can get the most out of RX 8.

Rated 0.5 out of 5 by from Too Surface I was expecting the teacher to tell me why he twist such parameters, but he just read the names of the parameters and say something like "as you can see, I am changing the slope" and that's it. and he even say "you just listen to which one is better and render it". So I think its much like the same as we randomly trying it out in rx8, but we don't really know why we have to twist that knob. Waste of time. It's better to look at the user manual.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Well Organized The organization of the videos has helped me learn more efficiently, by giving me the ability to learn entire software, or review specific parts of a software with ease.

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by from Shallower than I would like. This video offers a bite-sized, digestible look at the modules of RX 8, and would be useful for a novice to audio editing. As someone new to the program, the tips on workflow and shortcuts in particular were appreciated. That being said, I was disappointed by the lack of actionable or technical information about how the modules work under the hood, or even"tips and tricks." Some of the spectral tools in RX 8 are incredibly powerful, but I feel like the presentation was a lot of "This is a black box that does a thing. Be gentle with your settings, and use multiple passes." This is good advice, but doesn't do much to explain what you're actually doing. Perhaps a follow-up series or master class would be more what I'm looking for.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from Excellent resourse. There is a lot to learn in RX 8 and this helps immensely. Excellent explanations at a good pace. The examples are good but I felt they could have been a bit more dramatic to better hear what RX is doing. The crackle should have more crackling, the plosives bigger, the noise more noisy etc. A minor criticism for sure as this is a terrific resource.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Highly interesting Very interesting indeed. Half way through and enjoying immensely. Well explained, these videos go into every aspect of these Izotope restoration plugins, which are really excellent at their job, whatever the problem may be with the recording.
