Balance your mix
The new Tonal Balance Control plug-in introduces industry-first visual analysis and communicates with all instances of Neutron so you can shape a perfectly balanced mix. Instantly call up any Neutron EQ and adjust your tracks to targets based on intelligent analysis of tens of thousands of professional mixes. You can even create your own custom targets from one or more songs in your personal library.
A new way to analyze your music, the Tonal Balance Control plug-in communicates with the Neutron 2 and Ozone 8 Equalizers (available separately). This new inter-plug-in communication lets you fix mix issues that hinder mastering and bridges the gap between the two. No more context switching or opening up multiple windows—just tonally balanced, professional sounding music.
Introducing the Visual Mixer
The new Visual Mixer creates a
picture of the entire soundstage, giving you control over individual
tracks and enabling you to quickly and intuitively set the contour of
your mix—all without leaving the window. Control the pan, gain, and
width inside of Neutron so your mix sounds exactly how you intended.
Unmask your mix
An industry first, Neutron’s
Masking Meter allows you to visually identify perceptual frequency
collisions, which can result in guitars masking lead vocals, bass
covering up drums, and other issues that can cause a “muddy” or overly
crowded mix. Toggle seamlessly between any two tracks to carve out sonic
space and ensure that each instrument has its own place to shine.
Tap into every track
We understand that producers
and engineers don’t always use iZotope plug-ins on every track. That’s
okay! You can still route any of your tracks to the Tonal Balance
Control plug-in, Visual Mixer, or Masking Meter from the new Mix Tap
plug-in. Enjoy the flexibility of using any plug-in while still getting
all the benefits of our innovative new tools across your entire mix.
Neutron for Post
Neutron is the smartest way to
mix for audio post production. Neutron 2 Advanced includes Track
Assistant to quickly analyze and set a starting point for your audio
across Neutron’s six zero-latency, CPU-efficient audio processors.
Highlights include an award-winning BS.1770 True Peak Limiter, multiband
Gate with Hysteresis, EQ Learn, dynamic EQ to sonically balance
sub-mixes, dialogue-polishing Neutrino mode, and surround sound support
across all modules.
Improved Track Assistant
Another industry first,
Neutron’s updated Track Assistant lets you create a custom starting
point based on your audio so you can focus on what’s most important—your
creative take on the mix. In version two, we’ve made improvements
including piano instrument detection based on machine learning, the
ability to automatically set release, ratio and attack on the
Compressor, and more.
Neutron features some of the best audio processing we’ve ever created,
allowing you to achieve professional sounding mixes inside your digital audio workstation.
It now includes six industry leading mixing processors, all zero-latency capable, including a new Gate with hysteresis, a static/dynamic Equalizer with analog-inspired soft saturation, two multiband Compressors, a multiband Exciter, and a multiband Transient Shaper, as well as an ultra low-latency True Peak Limiter—perfect for all your mixing needs.
