2022 NAMM: iZotope Neutron 4, Smarter auto-mixing software


iZotope brings a whiff of trash to Neutron 4, its even smarter auto-mixing software.


The AI-powered plugin package continues to evolve.


Ahead of 2022 NAMM Show, iZotope has released Neutron 4, the latest version of its intelligent mixing software. This combines eight plugins via an Ai-powered “assistive audio technology” that is designed to help you out when it comes to making mixing decisions.


Good News is Neutron 4’s Mix Assistant has been ‘modernised’ into the Assistant View, and is powered by machine learning and will ‘listen’ to your audio and make appropriate mix settings. You can then adjust these in what’s described as an ‘intelligent control centre’.


In addition, new Unmask module that discovers and fixes masking issues for you by making space between two competing tracks, and Target Library will dynamically match the tone of your track to a sample or step using assistive tone-matching technology.


Other new features include Trash plugin – add distortion either carefully or irresponsibly, a Punch mode in the compressor that can visualise how hard your sounds hit, a Tone slider and a Tame button in the Exciter module, and sidechain metering in the Compressor module.


Neutron 4 is included in the new Music Production Suite 5 Universal Edition, a suite of 52 plugins that, as well as featuring iZotope products, also contains two Exponential Audio reverbs and six plugins from Brainworx. Anyone who purchases this will also get two new flagship iZotope product updates that will be released later this year.


Neutron 4 is available now for the intro price of $299 (regular price $399) while Music Production Suite 5 Universal Edition is now available for the intro price of $599 (regular price $999).
