Producer’s Guide to Neutron 2 key features
Joshua Casper dives into iZotope’s recently updated Neutron 2 mixing suite, across 19 chapters and two-and-a-half hours of video. Casper begins with an overview of the plug-in, before moving on to look at Neutron’s unique features such as the Track Assistant, Masking EQ, and the new Visual Mixer, Mix Tap and Tonal Balance Control plug-ins.
The next section delves into each module one by one, and includes a useful extra video on working with External Sidechain signals, although it’s a shame the internal sidechain options aren’t explored a little more.
To finish, there’s an excellent, extended 40-minute section that looks at a real world mix of a modern reggae track using just Neutron 2, and you get the stems plus 10 bonus presets so you can experiment yourself. If you’re interested, this video leads directly on to a mastering course using Ozone 8 (sold separately).
