iZotope Neutron 3 – many new features

Posted on: Saturday 15th of June 2019

iZotope has released Neutron 3, the third edition of its plug-in-based mixing suite. Neutron 3 is packed with eight plug-ins – Sculptor, EQ, Transient Shaper, Gate, Exciter, Limiter and two compressors – that can be used individually or as eight modules combined together in a single plug-in.

Amongst the package’s new features is an intuitive Mix Assistant designed to get you off to a quicker start when mixing and the Sculptor plug-in that uses spectral shaping to modify instrument tracks.

With Neutron 3, iZotope has focused on machine learning. iZotope puts the new Mix Assistant, exclusive to Advanced, front and centre as the first-ever plug-in that “listens” to your project and communicates with each track in the mix. The purpose of this analytical listening is to help you find a starting balance, which will form the foundation of your mix. The plug-in allows the user to select which tracks will be the mix focus, and is designed to work with instrumentals and vocal-centred music.

The new Sculptor plug-in, available in both Standard and Advanced versions, is designed to sweeten the sound of instrument tracks. iZotope describes its function as “per-band army of compressors and EQs” dedicated to shaping a track. Sculptor uses machine learning and custom DSP to craft a “custom preset” for each track. It equips the user with 25 different instrument profiles that can transform each instrument into a “new version of itself”, according to the iZotope.

Pricing for Neutron 3 versions are as follows:

Neutron Elements (v3): Available now at $99 (RRP $129)
Neutron 3 Standard: Available now at $199 (RRP $249)
Neutron 3 Advanced: Available now at $299 (RRP $399)
