Using Neutron 2 on The Decemberists' New Record, 'I’ll Be Your Girl'

by Dave Godowsky, iZotope

March 16, 2018

Every Friday, we’re sharing a newly released song or album from one of our favorite artists and talking with them about how they used an iZotope product on it. This week we spoke to John Congleton, who used Neutron 2 on the new Decemberists record I’ll Be Your Girl (released 3/16 on Capitol Records).

“iZotope’s Neutron 2 is my go to plug in for EQ/compression these days, and the new Decemberists record was no exception. We recorded a lot of the instruments in a wide open space or literally inside an empty swimming pool, so the Transient Shaper was invaluable for getting clarity in the attack of some things with that many reflections.”
