    Hi
    Any recommendations for the 'best' NR software and/or plugin? Any votes for iZotope RX?

    Well I own and use Izotope RX and I'm pleased with it. My daughter used it at school and in a studio where she was an intern and she knew how to use it and liked it. I can't say that I did a comprehensive audition of all competitors. If you can sample HVAC noise or guitar amp hum it does a nice job of eliminating noises like that. That's what I've used it for so far, and it's done the job well and pretty transparently. I really can't say how it works on more complicated more intermittent noise.

    How about 2 options
    A)unlimited budget
    and
    B)under $500

    I'm on Mac and using Adobe Audition currently, though I've been told Izotope offers better NR

    Well, I'm partial to Bias Soundsoap Pro but I think that's just a matter of familiarity. $300 Waves has Z-Noise. $200. Izotope RX is Way more robust that the Waves Z-Noise.

    Someone here mentioned Cedar Systems a long while back but those cost into the thousands of dollars as they have specialized hardware for specific tasks.
