iZotope RX comes to the rescue at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios

RWS externalBased in the village of Box in Wiltshire, Real World Studios is one of the UK’s most impressive studio complexes, not just in terms of the superb facilities on offer to musicians and producers, but also the remarkably beautiful and inspirational setting of a 200-year old watermill. Originally conceived by world renowned singer-songwriter Peter Gabriel, the studio has steadily increased its offering in recent years to also include facilities and services for post-production work.

We recently found out that iZotope’s RX 4 audio enhancement and repair software is now a staple toolkit in Real World Studio’s post-production set-up since the team saw the impressive results Peter Gabriel’s engineer Dickie Chappell had produced when he used RX to clean up some old recordings.

iZotope RX 4 at Real World StudiosThe award-winning software is frequently being utilised by the studios for a range of tasks and projects including foley recordings, restoration work and mixing. We got in touch with the guys to get the lowdown on the real-life scenarios in which RX has come to the rescue, what they particularly like about the software as well as a deeper insight into the studios themselves.
