New iZotope Software Extravaganza


It looks like this Fall season is bringing great weather and even greater news for software fiends working in music or post-production. iZotope has unleashed a flurry of new versions and bundles to equip you with powerful, effective, and efficient tools that make mixing, audio restoration, and mastering easier.

First up is the ever-popular Ozone, now on its ninth version and available in three tiers: Elements, Standard, and Advanced. All tiers of Ozone 9 get Native Instruments NKS support, resizable windows, updated metering, module/global presets, Stereoize II in the Imager, a HUD display in the Equalizer, and improvements to the performance and UI. Standard and Advanced tiers also receive the Track Referencing function, a stand-alone app with plug-in hosting and sample rate conversion, and Vintage mode in the Master Assistant. Both Standard and Advanced have broken out EQ Match into its own powerful module.

The Advanced tier, however, offers two new modules/plug-ins: Low End Focus and Master Rebalance. Incredibly, the Master Rebalance module lets you tweak the level of drums, bass, or vocals in any audio track, even a printed stereo mix! There are regular and educational editions of all three tiers, plus accommodating upgrade paths to the Standard and Advanced tiers.

The Music Production Suite 3 bundle is an extensive collection of iZotope plug-ins geared toward helping you through all phases of music production. It includes Ozone 9 Advanced, Neutron 3 Advanced, an updated Tonal Balance Control, RX 7 Standard, VocalSynth 2, Nectar 3 with RX 7 Breath Control and Melodyne 4 Essential, Insight 2, R4 and NIMBUS by Exponential Audio, iZotope Relay, and one year of access to Groove3 online video tutorials. Regular and educational editions are available, as are a variety of upgrade and cross-grade options.

The new Tonal Balance Bundle presents a set of plug-ins that communicate with each other via AI-Assistants and work together to handle everything from track-specific sculpting to overall mix polishing and achieving loudness targets. The bundle provides you with Ozone 9 Advanced, Neutron 3 Advanced, Nectar 3 with RX 7 Breath Control and Melodyne 4 Essential, Tonal Balance Control, and iZotope Relay. The Tonal Balance Bundle is available in regular and educational versions, and there are cross-grade options from Neutron 3 Advanced or any paid iZotope product.

Whether you specialize in sound design, produce music, or mix audio for video, you can never have too many reverb plug-ins. With that in mind, iZotope has brought Exponential Audio to its family and is now offering the Exponential Audio Everything Bundle, which includes 11 plug-in titles—standard and surround versions of PhoenixVerb and R2, Excalibur, NIMBUS, R4, and standard and 3D versions of Stratus and Symphony.

With so many features and functions in the line of iZotope plug-ins and bundles, it would take far too long to list that information here. If you want to learn more about certain iZotope products, speak to a specialist at the B&H SuperStore or go to our website to read up on them.
