the listed DLL relates to Xform. it's an Avid issue, not an Izotope issue.

there's no separate Izotope install of anything here.
Yes thanks for correcting that, I was rushing on my iPhone and completely misread the whole thread as iZotope RX. Sorry for the confusion/not heping.

Some good news to share is that I found another troubleshooting tip online, and I tried those steps and it seemed to work! I'll post it here in this reply so you can see it.

I read your troubleshooting tip on moving plugins to an unused folder, but only 'after' I tried the tips I just found online.

When I get more time, I'm going to check out the preferences folder in ProTools and just take a look at what's in there for this issue. I really appreciate your time in outlining your tips. Thank you!

Here is what I found online in regards to Elastic Audio and iZotope:

Hi !

I found the FIX for the :

Import Dll Izotope_radius_Xform_x64.dll can not be loaded error

Steps :

1. Download the elastic audio here ! https://www.sweetwater.com/sweetcare...audio-plug.zip

2. Copy the .zip to your desktop.

3. Right click on the .zip and choose Extract All.

3. Go to C:\Program Files\Avid\Pro Tools\System Plug-Ins.

4. Move the folder called Elastic Audio.aaxplugin from the extracted .zipfolder to the folder you opened in step 3. You will be replacing a file of the same name. ( In my case was hidden but it was there )

5. Restart Pro Tools and you should have normal functionality.

I think this thing need to be verified and fixed by Avid..

Got it. A different issue. Thank you for sharing your solution.

Hello Jonathan,

Thank you for that background information on iZotope.

I did look on their web page, but since it was heavily technically detailed, I did not delve into the content; I just skimmed through it.

Your explanation of the iZotope DLL and how it is an algorithm cleared it up for me.
