Has anyone used the highly regarded iZopope Rx in their post workflow?
What are its advantages compared with other tools like adobe audition?
Is it primarily useful only for things like noise reduction and removing unwanted sounds?

Well your question is ??? I'm going to guess that DAE is Digital Audio Editor, though I have never heard that abbreviation used before. I think your looking for DAW Digital Audio Workstation. But either way your question is Apples and Oranges since Rx is neither. It is a sound restoration bundle. Mostly used, at least in film work, as a plugin. It doesn't edit sound it removes noise and other artifacts. It has no "editing" features at all.
So it doesn't compare at all.
And yes there are a lot of people using Rx in their post workflow, usually as a plugin inside a DAW like Pro Tools.

iZopope Rx is a nice NR package, but it ain't designed for, and can't fix poorly recorded audio. On the other hand, Audition is 'multi-track audio software' (generically known as a Digital Audio Workstation., aka, DAW) which has a few included NR tools, as does other DAWs like PTs, Sonar, Vegas, ect. They can't fix poorly recorded audio either.

Ok thanks for that clarification.
But is there any real advantage in using the standalone iZotope software for noise reduction over the built-in plugins in Adobe Audition?

iZotope RX can be used as a standalone application or one of its modules can be called up as a plugin in a DAW.
What exactly are you trying to fix? Sometimes I use multiple passes of an RX process in conjunction with built-in plugins in Pro Tools to do the job. Which means that you can use the plug-ins in Audition as a secondary or tertiary process to RX. Do you have a sample of the audio that is in question?RJF

Actually Noiz2, RxII does have some editing features. You ca change the gain and do fade-ins and fade outs. It's an essential tool in my opinion. I use it for video production as well as for musical recordings. Anything recorded with a mic can have artifacts that need removing, like plosives, hum, distortion, clicks, lip smacks, background noises etc. I clean up everything with iZotopr RXII and I highly recommend it. It does everything related to restoration better than Audition.

OK. I think of cutting (ie editing) as a requirement to be an editor. But I came from tape and editing tape was cutting, the rest was mixing.
So I would then have to answer the OP's original post that Rx is pitiful compared to Audition as an editor.
But that is not really fair to Rx, is it?
