For those familiar with iZotope’s vast range of mix, mastering and repair tools but have either not been sure about the investment required or the time and learning curves involved - or, if as a creator, you believed that mixing, mastering and track level audio repairs are way beyond your skill set - then read on.
iZotope has put all the latest Pro versions of its top mixing software (Neutron Pro, Ozone Pro and RX Pro For Music) in one suite. These are accompanied by an astounding set of additional software collections like Insight Pro, its award-winning metering and analysis package, Neoverb, which is simple to use and produces some of the best and instantly usable reverb effects I’ve heard, Nectar Pro, VocalSynth Pro, and Melodyne 5 Essentials - all of which are some of the best vocal production, manipulation, synthesis and time/pitch correction software plugins available.
Also included is Tonal Balance Control Pro, which is designed to learn from the music you love or the genre you’re working in to achieve better, more consistent mixing and mastering results.
What’s more, you can now get all of this and more for a yearly subscription of £176.62 VAT excluded.
RX Pro For Music
Apart from being a powerful collection of plugins, RX Pro For Music is a standalone application in its own right, providing a flexible platform for cleaning up stems before exporting them to your DAW, preparing soundtracks, podcasts, interviews etc.
The way that many work today means there’s a lot more collaboration, with files and stems being created and Dropbox’d between musicians and producers. This can throw up some interesting challenges that need to be addressed. The same is true for vocal breaths, lip and tongue clicks and fidgeting noises, footsteps and headphone click track bleed, as well as wonderful MacBook fan noise. All these eventualities are catered for.
