A modern workflow for your mix sessions.
Neutron 3 packages the latest advances in audio and passes them on to you, so you can focus on your craft.
Mix Assistant: Balance your tracks, and start your mix
Introducing Mix Assistant: Track Assistant’s big brother. Through inter-plugin communication, Mix Assistant listens to your entire mix, communicating with every track in your session to give you a balanced starting point, built around a focus of your choice. With Mix Assistant, Neutron 3 is the first-ever plug-in that listens to your mix so you can kick your session off right, saving your time and energy for creative mix decisions.
Neutron Advanced comes with 8 additional, individual module plug-ins with the same great signal processing power to use across your session, independent of the mothership. Build your own signal chain alongside your favorite audio plug-ins for the ultimate mixing experience—faster, even better sounding plug-ins in whatever configuration you like.
Sculpt your sound, fix your mix
Sculptor is the be-all end-all of audio goodness. For sweetening, fixing, and even creative applications, it’s like having a per-band army of compressors and EQs working tirelessly to shape your track. Sculptor talks with Track Assistant to understand the instrument you’re working with and gives real-time feedback to help shape your track. Sculptor can also work with any chosen instrument profile, letting you experiment with new sounds and make something entirely your own.
Improved Masking Meter
With a convenient one-window display, smoother metering with more obvious actions like inverse link, Masking Meter is now even better at helping you find and fix competing elements of your mix to create space for any instrument, vocal, loop, and more. And now with even better connection to other inter-plugin communication enabled plug-ins, you can fix your mix fast.
Work much faster with performance gains to keep you focused on what’s important, without the annoyance of system slowdowns or standstills. Insert more instances of Neutron in your session, open sessions faster, forget about messing with settings and bouncing, and experience some seriously velvety visualizations. Not only is Neutron faster at processing your audio, but your sessions with multiple Neutrons will open faster, and refresh rates for visualizations have doubled.
Touch your audio
Resizable, beautiful, and significantly faster. Dive into analysis tools that enhance your mixing experience and get results with plug-in controls made for humans, not machines. Work directly with what you see and translate what you hear with easy-to-use controls nested in smooth, understandable metering. Remove the barriers between sound and visuals for a downright enjoyable mixing experience.
