iZotope Offers Free Download of Vinyl Plug-In



iZotope pointed out that vinyl is a nearly century-old format with a firmly solidified place in the era of modern music. With today’s fast-paced advancements constantly pushing innovation in the world of music creation and consumption, the presence of this timeless physical format provides a sense of comfort, familiarity, and groundedness.

Even its “imperfections” (surface noise, clicks/static, warp) have become accepted as inherent characteristics that define the sound of the vinyl format as opposed to flaws.

Isotope’s free Vinyl plug-in celebrates this by allowing creators to manipulate these unique vinyl characteristics and apply them into their own productions. One of the parameters found in the plug-in is the Year settings, which models the sound of vinyl records from different decades using various filter responses.

And what better way to study these Year settings than by taking a musical trip through each decade: 1930’s, 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s 1980’s and 2000s. Start by downloading the latest Vinyl update for free from the iZotope website. Start your listening journey by switching from one Year setting to the next as you go through each decade. Keep in mind that the sound of the vinyl format is significantly determined by many extraneous factors so variations in the sound are to be expected.

iZotope Introduces Neoverb



iZotope is thrilled to share their first reverb product – Neoverb. Designed from the ground up for music, Neoverb re-invents how a mixing reverb for the modern-day music producer should look, sound, and feel.

Powered by iZotope’s AI capabilities, a lightning-fast workflow, and algorithmic reverb excellence inherited from Exponential Audio, hear how Neoverb can elevate your mixes in creative and inspiring ways.

Neoverb has an exciting new feature called Blend Pad. Instead of cycling through random presets and setting up multiple reverbs with complicated routing inside your DAW, iZotope created the Blend Pad to eliminate all friction traditionally inherent to this process.

With the Blend Pad, you’re free to jump right into the fun part of mixing with reverb: rapidly auditioning different reverb environments until you discover the perfect space for your audio. Once you find your sound, you’ll be able to refine and tweak it, sitting it perfectly in the mix.

By leaning into their experience with AI, Neoverb is able to tame reverb-tail problems areas quickly, keeping you in a creative headspace as you continue to explore new frontiers with reverb in your music.

First, their Pre EQ section will intelligently listen to your dry audio, identifying regions that have muddy harmonics that might create unwanted artifacts in your final reverb output. By reducing these at the source, iZotope can guarantee a smoother, cleaner reverb at the end.

The Reverb EQ includes specialized masking-reduction technology which listens to your audio and minimizes audible overlap and frequency crowding occurring between your reverb and the source. This will get you a great sound without needing to over-EQ later, which can get you much more natural-sounding results in the end.

iZotope’s Dialogue Match Wins Cinema Audio Society Award



iZotope, the experts in intelligent audio technology and makers of two-time Emmy Award winning software RX, recently accepted the prestigious Cinema Audio Society Award for their dialogue editing software, Dialogue Match.

The award represents recognition from the CAS membership, a “who’s who” of television and film sound. Dialogue Match was introduced in November 2019 and has very quickly become a critical tool for dialogue editors and automated dialogue replacement (ADR), both for cinema and TV audio.

“We now have a way of seamlessly matching EQ, reverb, and ambience of ADR to existing production recordings,” explained Doug Mountain, dialogue editor for movies and TV shows such as Catch 22 and Walking Dead. “This takes all the guesswork and time out of mixing ADR into existing production. It’s a huge timesaver. You can’t even tell what is ADR now, it blends so perfectly with production. This is a serious game changer.”

Dialogue Match is the first tool to automatically learn and match the sonic character of dialogue recordings. It is also the first product to combine brand-new machine learning from iZotope with ground-breaking reverb technology from Exponential Audio’s product line, which was acquired by iZotope in 2019.

For re-recording mixers and ADR editors, Dialogue Match is an unprecedented time-saver. Tonal characteristics can be matched between a boom and a lavalier microphone, localized audio can automatically be matched to the original language, and global snapshots and reference photos can be saved or loaded.

This is iZotope’s seventh CAS award. Dialogue Match builds on the success of iZotope’s RX, which streamlines audio workflows for post production editors and mixers and has become a mainstay of the CAS awards. RX has taken nome six awards since 2014.


Download iZotope’s Ozone Imager V2 for Free!



iZotope has updated its Ozone Imager stereo imaging plug-in, and is currently offering it as a free download. Ozone Imager Version 2 comes updated with Stereoize II and a resizable window, so you can narrow or widen your stereo image with simple controls.

Updated in 2019 with immersive, fluid visuals, full resizability, and a smooth new Stereoize mode, this free plug-in offers a wider world of possibilities for imaging in your mix.

Control the width: Easily widen or narrow your sounds to fit them in any mix. It’s the easiest way to spread out a narrow-sounding synth or nestle your bass guitar in the center.

Stereoize it: Stereoize can turn mono into stereo, with no need for reverb or doubling. Use the new Stereoize II mode for subtle enhancement, or Stereoize I for a colorful phasing effect.

Visualize your sides: Three different vectorscope meters help check your stereo width and see if your left and right channels are lining up properly. Resize your plug-in window to get an even better view of the action!
