A smarter way to mix
Achieve a clear, well-balanced mix with Neutron’s innovative new mixing and analysis tools. Control every aspect of your music, from the visual soundstage of your tracks to the tonal balance of your mix—all with iZotope’s award-winning digital signal processing.
Tonal Balance Control
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 hundreds of professional mixes. You can even create your own custom targets from one or more songs in your personal library.
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.
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
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 the ability to set auto-release, ratio and attack on the Compressor, piano instrument detection based on machine learning, and more.
Improved Neutrino Mode
Different instrument tracks — like vocals, dialogue, guitar, bass, piano, and drums — are automatically detected. Neutron then applies iZotope’s spectral shaping technology within Neutrino Mode to provide subtle clarity and balance to each of your tracks.
EQ, with EQ Learn
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 sidechain capabilities, it's your new go-to EQ for all your mixing tasks. Version 2 also adds analog-style soft saturation for an even warmer sound.
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 multiband control.
The new Gate offers all the modern DSP processing you’d expect from iZotope plus analog-style touches, like Hysteresis, that offer smoother noise gating. With three bands, Crossover Learn functionality, and Hold option, you can get the ultimate control over removing bleed and creating better separation of your tracks. separation of your tracks.
The multiband 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.
The exciter allows you to easily add punch, warmth, brightness, and presence to yourtrack without muddying up the sound. With three powerful Emphasis modes, a unique, multiband 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.
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.
Neutron’s high-quality, CPU-efficient audio processing offers zero-latency processing across all mixing modules, an award-winning BS.1770 True Peak Limiter, dynamic EQ with sidechaining to sonically balance sub-mixes, an automatic dialogue-polishing Neutrino mode, and surround sound support in all 6 modules and individual plug-ins.
