iZotope Nuetron overview

  • 1Description

Available for download, iZotope Neutron 2 Advanced is a channel-strip plug-in designed for mixing music and audio-post production. Like its predecessor, Neutron 2 Advanced provides a compressor, equalizer, exciter, transient shaper, and a limiter, as well as the frequency-masking meter and the track assistant feature. Many of these modules have been improved upon, and several new elements have been introduced to making your mixing session a more intuitive, gratifying enterprise.

Take the new Visual Mixer, for instance. This separate module, included with the plug-in, gives you a visual picture of your mix; any track using Neutron 2 Advanced or the Mix Tap plug-in (explained later) can be manipulated across an intuitive, visual plane, giving you a graphical indicator not unlike an XY matrix. Move a track from the left to the right, and you are panning that track from the left to the right. Move the track up and down to dictate its sonic level within the visual framework. Each element represented in this pictorial overlay is encapsulated in a node; grab the handles of this node and pull it outwards or inwards to manipulate the element's overall stereo width. This tool is meant to benefit Neutron as an ecosystem, promoting integration between tracks boasting Neutron 2 or the Mix Tap plug-in, and allowing you to carve space without navigating through windows, fader banks, and other potential hindrances.

As for the Mix Tap plug-in, the concept behind that is relatively straight-forward: perhaps you don’t want to load Neutron on a relatively unimportant track in your mix, but would still like to manipulate that element within the Visual Mixer. If that’s the case, simply instantiate Mix Tap on the track, and it will now interface with the Visual Mixer—but it doesn’t stop there: Mix Tap also lets you integrate non-Neutron tracks with iZotope’s Tonal Balance Control Plug-in and the Masking Meter to better implement frequency changes throughout your mix.

This leads us nicely into the Tonal Balance Control plug-in, included with Neutron 2 Advanced. Tonal Balance Control provides an intuitive and adjustable frequency analysis over your whole mix. It's designed to help you ensure a frequency profile commensurate with the norms of modern, vintage, or orchestral music. You can also upload your own reference tracks into Tonal Balance Control and aim to match those. On the low end, a crest factor meter is provided to make sure you don't over-compress the bass frequencies. Within the plug-in, you can call up and tweak equalizers in any instance of Neutron 2 or Ozone 8 across your mix. This gives you a new level of control and inter-connectivity across the iZotope ecosystem.

A new module has also been added into the fray, one that is sure to come in handy: a multiband noise gate with hysteresis, which also sports musical controls for eliminating unwanted, extraneous signals in a natural manner. 

In addition to the UI improvements, which include a more intuitive layout—making features like the masking meter easier to use—Neutron 2 Advanced has also improved many of the machine-learning algorithms which made the original Neutron handy in the first place. The track assistant, for instance, now has the ability to set time constants for the dynamic processes. The functionality of the exciter has been expanded so that now you can set the drive and blend of the harmonic distortion when it analyses your track. Track Assistant also gives you a range of potential options for its custom-created presets. When first firing it up, a menu will ask you what you’re going for, giving you style options (balanced, warm, and upfront) as well as intensity choices (low, medium, and high). You can tell the algorithm what the instrument is, or choose auto-detect. If you choose the latter, know that a new detection mode has been implemented to identify pianos. When it’s done processing, the Track Assistant gives you the ability to accept or reject the custom-created channel setting.

More options abound which improve work-flow and creativity. For instance, you’ll find a soft-saturation option attached to the equalizer. All multiband processors can be switched into single-band, and controls below the I/O section allow you to monitor in mono, flip the polarity, increase the width on both the left and right channels, and swap them. Below these controls, you’ll find the Neutrino section, which helps you maintain the clarity, focus, and separation of individual tracks across your mix by means of three controls. This software is compatible with Windows and Mac platforms. It can operate in AAX, RTAS, VST 3, VST 3, and AudioUnit formats.

Note: You must have a purchased and licensed copy of Neutron Advanced to qualify for this upgrade.
