A Letter from Mark Cattini, Soundwide CEO

Read a letter from Mark Cattini, Soundwide CEO, about our product promise to you.

iZotope is now a part of Soundwide, the new group that includes Native Instruments, Plugin Alliance, Brainworx, and Sound Stacks. 

Your feedback has been invaluable to understand 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.

We want to clarify a point that’s been too vague since we 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 we are 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.
