iZotope RX 9 Advanced review

Audio processing has fallen victim to the idea that AI is always going to be better than the human touch. Yet, many AI-based solutions spit out results that are worse than a human expert is capable of achieving. Some aspects of AI combine well with human expertise, though, especially in the audio processing field. Using machine learning algorithms in audio, video and photo processing applications is a good thing, mainly because they leave the editor in charge and increase efficiency. Since a good few versions back, iZotope has relied on machine learning excellence for their RX Audio Editor and the newest version takes it to the next level. I tested RX 9 Advanced to see if it lives up to its promise.… Read More iZotope RX 9 Advanced review

Unclutter, the new app that keeps your Mac Desktop clean as a whistle

If you’re like most busy people, you will one day find that it takes too much of your time to move files to folders that you still need to create and drag those folders to the Documents or one of those other Apple pre-made folders. Worse still, the folders you created are buried and often you may forget where you put your actual files. Instead, it’s much quicker to save or drag files to your Desktop.
