iZotope is well known in the media production space for its high-end processors and plugins. And while there are many iZotope fans who swear that the company’s products are worth every penny, it’s true that iZotope stuff doesn’t come cheap. That’s just one of the reasons it’s a newsworthy event when the company decides to give away a new plugin for free.
That’s exactly what iZotope is doing with Neutrino, a “spectral shaping” plugin:
Add that final polish to your mix with Neutrino, a free spectral shaping plug-in that offers a glimpse into iZotope’s newest mixing technology. Insert Neutrino on multiple tracks across your session to reveal a subtle amount of detail that can help elevate great mixes to a new level of refinement.
Neutrino is being released in VST, AU, AAX, and Audiosuite formats for both Windows and Mac. According to iZotope, the plugin is compatible with Logic Pro X.2, Ableton Live 9.5, Pro Tools 12.4, Pro Tools 11.3.1, Cubase Pro 8.5, REAPER 5.11, FL Studio 12.2, Studio One 3.1.1, and Pro Tools 10.3.1. It’s unclear if Neutrino is capable of running under other DAWs.
You’ll need to give up an e-mail address to get your free copy of Neutrino. It’s a small price to pay for what looks to be a pretty cool piece of software. Once you’ve filled out the download form, the iZotope website will give you your software serial number and automatically trigger the Neutrino download. You should also receive an e-mail from iZotope that contains your serial number along with a download link, just in case.
