iZotope simplifies track referencing with the new Audiolens desktop app
The latest release makes track referencing and comparison easy by analyzing audio directly from any streaming platform or audio source and integrating with iZotope plug-ins Neutron 4 and Ozone 10 to help users match sonic characteristics within their own mixes and masters.
iZotope, Inc., Boston, MA (November 9, 2022) - iZotope, Inc., the experts in intelligent audio technology, have released Audiolens, a new desktop app that makes track referencing and comparison simple by collecting and analyzing reference track data directly from any streaming platform or audio source without the need for downloading media files or setting up tedious audio routing setups.
Reference tracks offer a representation of the desired end result of a track and are a crucial part of achieving the perfect mix or master. Audiolens aims to streamline the referencing process, assisting engineers that are looking to find balance on a final master for a client and producers that want to make sure their song will stack up on a playlist.
The new innovative app gathers information on key sonic characteristics such as tone, dynamics, and width, and saves the analysis as a reference track to help users quickly visualize and compare how their own mixes and masters stack up their chosen references.
Audiolens can then integrate seamlessly with the AI-powered Assistants of iZotope plug-ins Ozone 10 and Neutron 4, automatically populating saved referenced targets to the Target Libraries where characteristics can be matched. Further adjustments are able to be dialed in using the Assistant Views, whether that’s adding more thump to bass, crisping up snares, or making hi-hats sizzle.
*Current iZotope owners should ensure they are running the latest version of their product. New users can try out Audiolens with iZotope plug-ins by downloading a 10-day free trial of Neutron 4 here, and a 10-day free trial of Ozone 10 here.
References can also be saved to the Audiolens Target Library to build a personal catalog of reference track data that can be accessed at any time. Saved references can be named and organized to help users quickly find the sounds they want to match and compare tonal balance profiles with ease. The Target Library communicates with Ozone 10 and Neutron 4, automatically populating references to those plug-ins if they are owned.
