iZotope Neutron Mixing Plug-inThe iZotope Neutron mixing plug-in combines five great-sounding processors with the latest in intelligent metering and analysis. Like having a virtual assistant, Neutron can listen to your audio, identify instruments, and offer tailored starting points for creating powerful mixes with focus and clarity while leaving all the creative control to you. The revolutionary Masking Meter can help you visually identify frequency collisions between instruments, allowing you to tweak each track so it sits better in the mix. Optimized for mixing, you can use this on dozens of tracks to carve away muddiness and reveal more sonic possibilities in your mixes.
Achieve unprecedented focus and clarity in your mixes with Neutron. This mixing plug-in combines the latest innovations in analysis and metering with award-winning audio processing.
With powerful features like Track Assistant and Masking Meter, Neutron helps you quickly reach an optimal starting point, clearly identify perceptual frequency collisions, and fully wield creative control over all your mix decisions. An industry first, Neutron's Track Assistant lets you focus on what's most important - your creative take on the mix. It's like having an assistant engineer at your disposal 24/7.
What makes Track Assistant so unique:Different instrument tracks -- like vocals, dialogue, guitar, bass, and drums -- are automatically detected. Neutron then applies the spectral shaping technology within Neutrino to provide subtle clarity and balance to each of your tracks.
After analyzing the incoming audio signal, EQ nodes are intelligently placed where Track Assistant thinks you need them, speeding up your workflow and eliminating much of the EQ guesswork.
Get recommendations for optimal starting points across all of Neutron's modules, including compressor thresholds, saturation types, and single vs. multi-band modes (including crossover points) -- a huge time saver that can leave you feeling inspired.
Typical software presets don't know what audio they're being applied to -- until now. By analyzing your track material, Neutron can offer 'infinite' presets that are custom tailored to your sound while still allowing full control over all your mix decisions.
Unmask your mixAnother 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.
Neutron features some of the best audio processing they've ever created allowing you to achieve better sounding mixes inside your digital audio workstation. It includes five industry leading mixing processors, all zero-latency capable, including a static/dynamic Equalizer, two multi-band Compressors, a multi-band Exciter, and a multi-band Transient Shaper, as well as an ultra low-latency BS.1770 True Peak Limiter -- perfect for all your mixing needs.
Equalizer: The workhorse EQ features clean yet subtly warm processing and a pristine analog-style signal path. With 12 bands of powerful static and dynamic EQ, a range of new and vintage filter types, and flexible side-chain capabilities, it's your new go-to EQ for all your mixing tasks.
Compressor: A parallel processing powerhouse, the Compressor offers the ultimate sonic versatility: the very best of classically 'gluey' character as well as transparent digital compression styles. Adjust to taste with features like Vintage mode, Auto Release, and flexible Analog (zero latency) and Transparent (hybrid) crossovers for the ultimate in multi-band control.
Transient Shaper: The multi-band Transient Shaper offers clarity, perceptual loudness, and impact enhancement for the most responsive sonic sculpting anywhere. With three musically versatile Contour controls, your drums, guitars, vocals and sound FX have never sounded this punchy.
Exciter: The exciter allows you to easily add punch, warmth, brightness, and presence to your track without muddying up the sound. With three powerful Emphasis modes, unique, multi-band blend interface featuring Tape, Tube, and two special iZotope algorithms, you can fine tune the color of your saturation to suit the needs of your track.
Limiter: With three distinct algorithms to choose from, the Limiter offers huge sonic variety when adjusting levels: from ultra-transparent to clean (low latency) pumping to a crunchy brick wall. Each algorithm has three modes for tailoring the character and intensity of the limiting, and Neutron's detailed True Peak, RMS and Short-term metering provides the accuracy needed for both broadcast and codec standards.
