The iZotope Insight Essential Metering Suite is designed for post production and broadcast applications. The Insight Suite provides an extensive set of audio analysis and metering tools, suitable for visualizing changes made during mixing and mastering, troubleshooting problematic mixes, and ensuring compliance with broadcast loudness standards. Fully customizable and scalable, Insight allows you to visually monitor all the relevant information from your mono, stereo, or surround mix in a convenient floating window.
Insight visually guides you throughout the mixing process, empowering you to look deeper into your audio with intelligent analysis tools and real-time monitoring capabilities. You can view tried and tested analog-style meters with digital twists, and keep tabs on cutting-edge displays that give you limitless access to your audio. You can design your ideal metering plug-in with customizable views, settings, and presets.
Insight provides a combination of both established and innovative metering solutions for any type of audio work. The flexible interface features 5 distinct metering partitions: Spectrogram, Spectrum Analyzer, Sound Field, Levels, and Loudness History.
Unlike typical waterfall plots, Insight's real-time 3D spectrogram creates a detailed topographical map of audio using iZotope's high-resolution spectrogram capabilities. It also includes a real-time spectrum analyzer for examining the frequency balance of your mix. Insight's resizable Stereo Vectorscope provides useful display options for examining the stereo image of your mix.
Insight features a number of tools that help ensure your audio adheres to the loudness standards. By evaluating audio levels in terms of how the human ear perceives loudness, loudness meters are used to ensure a mix complies with broadcast regulations, like those specified by the Advanced Television Standards Committee and European Broadcasting Union. Fully compliant with the ITU-R BS.1770-1, ITU-R BS.1770-2, ITU-R BS.1770-3, and EBU R128 standards, Insight provides the tools you need to be confident that your audio meets regulations.
Insight lets you choose the meters you want to view, customize them, and navigate to exactly the level of detail that you require. For eye-popping visual insight, you can feed information on multiple audio streams to the Spectrogram via Meter Taps. Add Meter Tap plug-ins to individual tracks or buses and then open the Spectrogram to see how mix elements combine in real-time details.
Insight's Surround Scope feature helps you visualize how your surround project will be spatially perceived by your audience during playback, and also keeps you aware of any potential technical problems with your audio's alignment. The Insight Essential Metering Suite is designed for post production and broadcast engineers, music engineers, video editors, and sound designers and composers.
