Anybody have Izotope RX 3 working as a plug-in with Audacity?
So far I can’t get it to work and I suspect it’s not compatible (but I hope I’m wrong!)
EDIT: TOTALLY WRONG! User error on my part - Details of my error in messages below.
All feedback welcomed.
I downloaded a demo copy of RX 3 from Izotope. I’ve found conflicting info on their site. In one place it shows it supports “VST” and “VST 3”. In another place is says “VST 2” and “VST 3”.
I’ve asked Audacity to rescan for plugins (multiple times) and the scan tool finds all the RX3 plugin and I’ve tested checking them in various combinations (there are 32 and 64 bit versions, I’ve tried them both) without them ever showing up on the Effects menu. (I’ve successfully installed many others plug-ins, so while I could be doing something wrong, I believe it have the process down correctly, but I hope it’s my ignorance and that you experts will tell me I just don’t know something.)
Here’s the text on their site: (from this page: http://www.izotope.com/products/audio/rx/support.asp)
AAX (Pro Tools 11), RTAS/AudioSuite (Pro Tools 7.4-10), VST and VST 3, Audio Unit (I added the BOLD and color)
In addition to being available in RX 3’s standalone mode, RX 3 modules are also compatible* as plug-ins for popular hosts like Pro Tools, Media Composer, Cubase, Nuendo, WaveLab, GarageBand, Logic, Final Cut Pro, Premiere, Audition, SONAR, ACID, Vegas, Sound Forge, Ableton Live, and many more.
I was hoping Audacity fit into the “many more” category. In another place on their site I read it’s VST2 & VST3 format, so I’m confused and so far it’s not working for me. I can/will use the standalone version, but my hope was just running the plugins was the answer and would be much easier for my workflow. (He says selfishly.)
EDIT: I’m messing with the standalone version too (demo copy), and there is so much visual info, I can’t see how it would happen within Audacity. I still hope I’m wrong, but not optimistic.
