A Question Of Balance
The new Tonal Balance Control gives you a way to “turn up your ears.” You can Instantly call up any Neutron Equalizer and adjust your tracks to targets based on hundreds of professional mixes. Also, for professionals, who now see a huge influx of budget work, the ability to work fast and achieve the results commensurate with your reputation is paramount. Enter again, the industry-first Tonal Balance Control plug-in. TBC not only provides visual analysis, it can communicate with all instances of Neutron across your tracks, enabling you to craft a perfectly balanced mix. You can even create your own custom targets from one or more songs in your personal library.
Lost In The Ozone Again
Not limited to communicating across Neutron instances, the Tonal Balance Control plug-in can also trip the light fantastic with Ozone 8 Equalizers (available separately). Tonal Balance Control’s inter-plug-in communication enables you to fix mix issues that can hinder mastering, without context switching or opening up multiple windows—resulting in tonally balanced, professional-sounding music.
In Your Eyes
Visual feedback is as important to mixing as audial feedback, and since we tend to rely more on our eyes to mix than perhaps we should, Neutron 2’s new Visual Mixer turns liability into asset. The 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 pan, gain, and stereo width inside Neutron 2 and craft your mix sounds exactly how you intend.
Behind The Mask
Neutron’s Masking Meter, yet another first for iZotope provides a visual means for identifying overlapping frequencies that can mask instruments in the mix. These frequency overlaps, which, for example, cause guitars to mask lead vocals, pianos to mask guitars, or bass hiding drums, can cause a muddy, or overly crowded mix. To find out where the culprits are hiding, you can toggle seamlessly between any two of the usual suspect’s tracks. The Masking Meter shows you where the problems lie, so you can ensure that each instrument has room in the mix to shine.
Put Me In Your Mix
With the all the myriad plug-ins avaialble, its rare, if not impossible to find a producer or engineer who’ll use the same brand of plug-in on every track, as attractive is it may be. No worries. If you want to take full advantage of iZotope mix tools, the Mix Tap plug-in lets you route any of your tracks to the Tonal Balance Control plug-in, Visual Mixer, or Masking Meter. Now you can rely on your personal bag of tricks and still get all the benefits of iZotope’s innovative new tools across your entire mix.
A Real Fine Place To Start
With so many options to choose from in a world where there are no rules (just guidelines, like The Pirate’s Code), life in DAW-land can become fairly immobilizing in terms of where to start. Neutron 2’s updated Track Assistant (another first from iZotope) lets you create a custom starting point based on your audio, so you can get out of housekeeping mode into creative mode. In version two, you’ll find several improvements, such as the ability to set auto-release, ratio, and attack on the compressor; piano instrument detection based on machine learning; and quite a bit more.
We Are The Champions
Neutron 2 features some of the best audio processing tools iZotope has ever created, putting professional sounding mixes within the reach of anyone clever enough to put Neutron in their DAW.
