iZotope has released Neutrino, a free plug-in that lets you add clarity to your mix in just a few steps. It can subtly refine vocals, instruments, bass and drums.
Add Clarity To Your Mix with Neutrino
You can use Neutrino on individual audio tracks, aux buses, and stem tracks. The plug-in is not meant to be used on your master output.
Say hello to Neutrino, our free spectral shaping plug-in. Use it to reveal subtle amounts of detail that can elevate great mixes to a new level of refinement. Add clarity to your mixes by applying it to every track or the major mix buses (just like analog summing or console emulations).
The plug-in has 4 modes:
- Voice: Adds clarity to vocals.
- Instrument: Smoothes out resonant frequencies.
- Bass: Adds punch to bass (electric, acoustic, synth).
- Drums: Emphasizes transient detail. Minimizes frequency buildup (mud).
Inserting the Plug-in on Multiple Tracks
To insert the plug-in on multiple tracks in Logic Pro X in one go, select multiple tracks in the Mixer, then insert the plug-in.
Neutrino Audio Examples
In the video below, Neutrino has been applied to every audio track individually.
Best heard on headphones or studio monitors. The effects are subtle!
More examples can be found on iZotope's Youtube Channel.
