Hello to the iZotope community,

My name is Mark Cattini and I am the CEO of Soundwide, the new group that includes iZotope, Native Instruments, Plugin Alliance, Brainworx, and Sound Stacks. 

I can't begin to tell you how excited I am to be part of the team leading our efforts across these brands. Over the past six months, I’ve spent a lot of time getting to know each of these great companies and getting to know many of you, our loyal customers. Hearing from you has been invaluable for understanding your hopes, concerns, and questions. Now it’s time for us to integrate that feedback into our customer experience—into how we develop products, and how we make them available to you.

I first want to clarify a point that’s been too vague since iZotope introduced subscriptions: We are fully committed to letting customers choose how they want to buy our products. We will continue to provide perpetual license products that you can own forever while also making a subscription available to those who prefer smaller monthly or annual payments. Last week we honored this commitment by releasing Neutron 4 as a perpetual product while also including it in our Music Production Suite Pro subscription. Expect even more products this fall to be available as both perpetual and subscription. 

We are also changing how we deliver our flagship Music Production Suite. We are now including all updates made to the Suite in 2022 as part of the new Music Production Suite 5 Universal Edition. So, if you got it today, you will receive all the new products we have added, including Neutron 4, and you can look forward to two more major flagship upgrades this fall with no further cost.

And finally, what I’m most excited to share is how the brands in the Soundwide family are coming together to collaborate and co-create. We've already started offering customers products from Native Instruments and Brainworx, and you can expect to see even more exciting products and offers in the future. Our aim is to create a rich ecosystem of products that allow producers and creators to stay in the creative flow and remove technical hurdles.

Stay tuned for more news and announcements over the coming months.

Best regards,
