iZotope Neutron Advanced Mixing Console Loyalty Xgrade (Download) Product Description
Achieve unprecedented focus and clarity in your mixes with Neutron. This new mixing plug-in combines the latest innovations in analysis and metering with award-winning audio processing.
Mix with confidence
With powerful new 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.
Meet your new assistant
An industry first, Neutron’s new 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:
Automatically detects different instrument types like guitar, vocals, bass, and drums Creates custom, optimal starting points based on your audio tracks Offers three levels of power, from Subtle to Medium to Aggressive Adds Neutrino’s Spectral Shaping sound for subtle focus and clarity Intelligently places EQ nodes and creates an EQ curve Sets optimal settings for signal flow, including single or multiband processing Smartly places crossovers in multiband modes Selects Compressor style (Digital or Vintage) and automatically sets settings (Threshold, Attack, Release, and Ratio) Selects Exciter algorithm blend and dials in a custom amount tuned to the audio
Unmask your mix
Another 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.
Based on iZotope’s Spectral Shaping technology Adds clarity and detail to your mix Subtly enhances instrumental separation and focus Four modes: Voice/Dialogue, Guitar/Instrument, Bass, and Drums/Percussive Simple controls CPU efficient
Our best processing yet
Neutron features some of the best audio processing we’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 multiband Compressors, a multiband Exciter, and a multiband 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 sidechain capabilities, it´s your new go-to EQ for all your mixing tasks.
Static or Dynamic functionality per node Side-chain functionality for Dynamic nodes Up to 12 EQ Bands Flat LP/HP, Resonant LP/HP, Analog lo/hi shelf, Baxandall bass/treble, Vintage lo/hi shelf, Prop Q, Band shelf Multiple frequency scale types: Linear, Mel, Log, Extended Log, Flat Log Adjust both the lead track and masking track’s EQ settings from within the same plug-in GUI Piano roll overlay Individual Equalizer plug-in ADVANCED ONLY
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 multiband control.
Clean modern or colorful vintage compression modes Single or multiband modes Threshold and crossover frequency auto-learn Peak, RMS, or transparent True Envelope detection Program dependent auto-release Internal or external side-chain per band Analog (zero-latency) or Hybrid (transparent) crossovers Individual Compressor plug-in ADVANCED ONLY
Transient Shaper: The new 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.
3 Global Modes: Precise, Balanced, Loose 3 Contour Shapes: Sharp, Medium, and Smooth Single or multiband Crossover frequency auto-learn Analog (zero-latency) or Hybrid (transparent) crossovers Individual Transient Shaper plug-in ADVANCED ONLY
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, 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.
3 Global Modes to fine-tune saturation color: Full, Defined, Clean 4 blendable saturation types: Tube, Warm, Tape, & Retro Unique, easy to use blend interface Single or multiband Crossover frequency auto-learn Analog (zero-latency) or Hybrid (transparent) crossovers Individual Exciter plug-in ADVANCED ONLY
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.
Neutron Advanced is also a smarter way to mix for audio post production. 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 5 modules and individual plug-ins.
- Automatically detect different instruments - like vocals, dialogue, guitar, bass, and drums - and then apply the spectral shaping technology within Neutrino to provide subtle clarity and balance to each track.
- Get recommendations for optimal starting points using Track Assistant, including EQ nodes, compressor thresholds, saturation types, and multiband crossover points, so you can mix with confidence.
- Carve out sonic space with the revolutionary Masking Meter to help each instrument sit better in the mix.
- Create the perfect mix with five essential mixing processors integrated into one CPU-efficient channel strip, packed with both clean digital and warm vintage-flavored processing.
- Surround Support [Advanced Only] for audio post professionals that need to enhance the audio for picture experience.
- Individual plugins [Advanced Only] available for the Equalizer, Compressor, Transient Shaper, and Exciter
- Windows: 7, 8, and 10
- Mac: OS X 10.9–10.11
