RX 6 is packed with new tools to speed up common post-production tasks, like controlling breath noises, taming harsh sibilant events, and removing mouth clicks, all of which feature prominently in this vocal sample.

The new breath control module can identify and attenuate breaths relative to the loudness of the dialogue, giving you natural breath attenuation with just one click. Have a listen to these breaths before.
