iZotope Alloy 2

iZotope has released Alloy 2, a mixing suite that features six tools in one plug-in.

Here’s what’s new in iZotope Alloy 2:

Alloy 2’s sonic enhancements include a redesigned Exciter module, a revamped multiband Transient Shaper, a host of new EQ filters, including Treble and Bass Baxandall filters, and more. Alloy 2 users will also click less to achieve more thanks to both a fully overhauled user interface, enlarged to make more controls accessible, and a new Overview panel that dynamically adjusts to show only the most relevant settings of the modules in play.

With low CPU usage and zero latency operation, Alloy 2 can be used again and again across a wide range of tracks and buses, making it a perfect mixing complement to iZotope’s flagship mastering suites, Ozone 5 and Ozone 5 Advanced. To this end, Alloy 2 also features an internal Meter Tap, which provides immediate visual feedback from Alloy 2’s tracks and buses in the Ozone5 Advanced Meter Bridge.

  1. The upgrade is $80 for Alloy 1 users, which is not too bad, though I’m a big cheesed-off since I just got Alloy 1 recently and there’s no free upgrade if you bought it in the last three months.

  3. yeah, i got that too.

    6/27 is pretty generous, considering it came out in mid august, so i don’t think there’s much to gripe about.

    and if you are outside the free upgrade, then $79 or $80 whatever it is seems pretty ridiculously fair too, considering how much you get!
