iZotope has announced the launch of new professional mixing and production suites Neutron 4 and Music Production Suite 5 Universal Edition.
The new and improved Neutron 4 suite – which can be used with any DAW – will offer all the same features as Neutron 3 but now comes furnished with eight plug-ins. Among the other features comprising Neutron 4 are a new Unmask module, for fixing masking issues like bass and kick drum frequencies clashing, a new Trash mode and Punch mode, and an update to the US audio technology company's AI-powered assistive audio technology, Mix Assistant, which has now been morphed into the new "intelligent control centre" Assistant View.
The comprehensive Music Production Suite 5 Universal Edition boasts 52 plugins and includes the new Neutron 4 mixing plug-ins, as well as VocalSynth 2, surround reverbs with Stratus 3D plus Symphony 3D by Exponential Audio, and six additional plug-ins from Brainworx. Earlier this year, iZotope formed a new umbrella company with Native Instruments, long-running plugin developers Brainworx and their plugin storefront platform Plugin Alliance, called Soundwide.
Neutron 4 and Music Production Suite 5 Universal Edition are available now from the iZotope site and from selected retailers. Neutron 4 costs $299 (£239) (introductory price) or $399 (£319) (regular price). The Music Production Suite 5 Universal Edition costs $599 (£479) (introductory) or $999 (£798) (regular). iZotope is also offering loyalty discounts to some existing customers.
