Version 2, however, has come packed with plenty of extras that will definitely make the decision a little harder. Panning left and right cannot be performed on mono tracks. This plugin has cut countless plugins out of my signal chain. Linking to piracy-centric subs also prohibited. Load one of Trash 2's 60+ distortion algorithms and adjust at will. Explore the sonic dimensions with the Filter, Delay, and Dynamics modules. Linear, Tension bezier , Square, Triangle, Sine and Stair Bit Crush.
One caveat to using the learn feature is that it only functions for multiband applications. What do you guys like to use it for? Are they just more presets, or do they come with more factory options that you can tweak too? Instead of compressing different bands with a set threshold, Neutrino constantly adapts its threshold of each band based on the audio coming in. Also you said earlier you also wanted to get Decapitator down the line? Visual Mixer sits on the Mix Bus and serves as a one stop area where all Mix Tap and Neutron 2 plugin can be handled. Three built in Targets can be initially used: Bass Heavy, Modern, and Orchestra. This is evident in the Preset Manager which houses hundreds of presets made by the team and other professionals. This gate has all of the trappings of standard gating with Threshold, Ratio, Hold, Attack and Release, but also incorporates Hysteresis, which is a facet of older analog gates.
In the delay module, iZotope have retained the six different effects from the original Trash plug in, but added a host sync option. I really would have liked to see a tool more similar to Sound Radix Auto Align that could align multiple mono tracks like drums. These help us improve our services by providing analytical data on how users use this site. This mode works best when attempting to get more level from audio without affecting the overall character of the sound. Although the filters are placed before and after the distortion by default, you can freely change the order of all the modules, even choosing to run the filters in parallel if you so desire. Polish it all off with Trash 2's organic Delay options and the analog-modeled compressor.
The addition of the Gate just adds more to its usefulness. A huge range of highly useable sounds are just a few clicks away and a wealth of truly unique, track-defining effects are achievable with just a little more work. The stereo width slider can also be used to great effect on a variety of instruments. Retaining the same six effects from a ten-year-old plugin seems slightly lazy. Sharp works best on faster transient material like drums, Medium gives a more transparent release and is an overall middle of the road setting for most audio, and Smooth is the slowest envelope built for handling sustain. Violations of this rule will result in a 1-day ban.
What I will say is that what it does get right, it gets right masterfully. This is a great tool to get started quickly or inspire different thinking in equalization. Auto Gain and Release function as the name suggests by compensating and adjusting the released based on the analysis of the signal. This gate is no slouch either. I could spends days just experimenting and discovering new sounds. Sampling has been around for several decades, but programs such as Iris are still finding new ways to work with audio.
Each of these modules are present across the top in gray and can be turned on and off by clicking the circular button at the top left of each as well as rearranged by dragging each module to its desired area in the signal chain. For me this is the weakest part of the update. Combined with the fact that it can run in multi band mode there are no open wishes and the gate module is a great addition and very powerful. However, once they are discovered and the mystery of how they operate has faded, they slowly creep into work flow. A Band Apart With the exception of a new delay section, the fundamental modules are the same but with a number of tweaks to improve both flexibility and workflow. These full packed feature set alone is quite impressing, but there is much more under the hood. In the Visual Mixer there are 3 buttons to save the mixing setup and switch between them.
We put the newly updated distortion plugin to the test. Using other iZotope products will also give a great advantage due to the interface being similar across different products. The interface packs a lot of information in a single window but is laid out logically. These can be used to tweak the preset. The frequency spectrum will display a new crossover, color coded to each band being used.
With an entirely new sonic architecture, brand new features, optimized performance, better sound quality, and support for modern hosts and formats, Trash 2 is primed for a powerful new era of audio mangling, distortion, and experimentation. Please contact us for further information or for a more detailed shipping timeframe and cost.

We will contact you if the final shipping quote differs from the shipping estimate provided at checkout. This too can be viewed based on the selected band and color-coded accordingly.
With 30 new impulse responses for further tone coloring and 70 new presets built directly for these impulses, the Edge Expansion Pack was born to be bad. A relatively rare seen feature. To the right of the Masking button is a drop down displaying other instances of Neutron across other tracks. This is the perfect tool for beginners or artists who want quickly and easily polish their mixes. For beginners the Track Assistant can be quite helpful and a good starting point.
