iZotope Announces Trash 2: A Cult Classic Reborn
A decade after the release of its predecessor, Trash 2 leaves its mark on the 133rd AES Show.
AES Booth #505, San Francisco, California (October 27, 2012) – iZotope, Inc., a leading innovator in digital audio signal processing, has announced Trash 2, the ultimate distortion and audio mangling toolbox. Fully overhauled from Trash 1, Trash 2 adds a wealth of new features including twenty new distortion algorithms, fresh filter modules, fifty new impulse responses, multi-band waveshaping, 64-bit support and much more.
It's been nearly a decade since Trash first arrived, and it's remained a cult favorite of artists such as Nine Inch Nails, Noisia, Garbage, KoЯn, Sigur Rós, and anyone looking to add dirt, grime, and character to their tracks. Now, nearly ten years later, Trash is back. Completely rewritten from the ground up, Trash 2 takes the best of Trash and makes it even better. 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.
"Designing a new product, or in this case redesigning an old product, is much more than adding a new set of features," explains Product Manager Jack Côté. "With Trash 2, we took a careful look at each aspect of Trash 1 and examined what made it so compelling and what could be improved. By preserving the best that Trash 1 had to offer, and at the same time, optimizing Trash for the modern era, we've developed a tool that we feel will excite both Trash 1 devotees and anyone looking at Trash 2 for the first time."
Trash 2 will be available for demonstration at the iZotope AES Show Booth #505 at the following times:
- 4:00pm on Saturday October 27
- 3:00pm on Sunday October 28
- 11:00am on Monday October 29
Pricing and Availability:
Trash 2 will be released mid-November 2012.
Trash 1 customers who purchased after October 1, 2012 will receive a free upgrade to Trash 2 upon release. Special upgrade pricing will be available for all previous Trash owners.
