iZotope’s Neutron contains many powerful features, but the Neutron Mix Assistant is one of the easiest to use. This course is intended for anyone who wants to understand just how it works and how to get the most out of it! You’ll learn about Relay, how to import and organize your tracks for best results and some best practices for the Visual Mixer feature.
Where You’ll Start…
We’ll start by outlining our course goals (this is a free sample lesson anyone can evaluate) before diving into inter-plugin communication (IPC). IPC is a technology created by iZotope that allows plugins to communicate with each other. IPC lays the groundwork for Neutron to automatically mix your track using any IPC-enabled plugin (which includes Relay, Nectar and others).
Better, Faster Mixing
Mix assistant can function in 2 important ways. Of course Mix Assistant can automatically mix just about any set of tracks or stems, effectively speeding up production and allowing non-professionals to mix decent tracks. However, the student of mixing can use it as a personal mixing instructor, too! After Mix Assistant has completed the mix, you can review every setting, every EQ and compression tweak. Then, you can A/B the results to figure out what’s going on and how the mix is coming together step-by-step!
When You’re Finished…
By the end of this course, you’ll be able to mix your tracks using Mix Assistant and Visual Mixer. You’ll understand how and why to use the IPC Relay plugin correctly. You’ll understand the concept of iZotope’s inter-plugin communication (IPC) and you’ll have the opportunity to download stems to practice with (for a course project/exercise).
