Referencing tracks from your favorite artists to use in your mixing or mastering session has never been easier. The new Audiolens desktop app analyzes audio from any streaming platform or audio source, without the need for downloading media files or setting up tedious audio routing setups. 

When paired with our AI-powered Assistant technology in Neutron and Ozone, Audiolens completely transforms your mixing and mastering reference workflow. Learn more about Audiolens below and get your copy of Audiolens.

Analyze your reference

The reference analysis from Audiolens is seamlessly integrated with iZotope plug-ins Ozone 10 and Neutron 4, eliminating the need to download tracks or set up tedious audio routing. This saves you time and allows you to easily match to your references and fine-tune your sound using Ozone and Neutron’s AI-powered Assistants.

With Ozone, match any master

Audiolens will automatically populate saved referenced targets to your Ozone 10 Target Library so you can visualize how your master stacks up to your chosen reference. Run the AI-powered Master Assistant to match the tone, dynamics, and width profiles of the desired track to your own master, and dial in additional adjustments using the Assistant View.

*Current Ozone 10 owners should make sure they are on the very latest version of their product. New users can download a 10-day free trial of Ozone 10 here.

With Neutron, easily dial in your sound

Audiolens will automatically populate saved reference targets to your Neutron 4 Target Library  where they will be analyzed by Neutron’s Assistant. You can then quickly match characteristics within the mix of your own track, whether that’s adding some thump to your bass, crisping up your snare, or making hi-hats sizzle. Further customize your sound by using the Assistant View to dial in your mix elements.

*Current Neutron 4 owners should make sure they are on the very latest version of their product. New users can download a 10-day free trial of Neutron 4 here.

Save your favorite references for later

Save the tonal data of your references to your Audiolens Target Library to build a personal catalog of reference track data that you can access anytime. Name your tracks so you can quickly find the sounds you want to match, and compare tonal balance profiles with ease. The Target Library talks to Ozone 10 and Neutron 4, automatically populating your references to those plug-ins if you have them.
