Insight 2 introduces a number of changes and features to our staple comprehensive metering and audio analysis plug-in. Better visualize what you’re hearing and make decisions with confidence, starting with updated broadcast loudness standards and multichannel support up to Dolby Atmos 7.1.2.

Intelligibility Meter

Making sure your dialogue cuts through the mix is no longer a challenge. Insight 2 takes full advantage of iZotope’s groundbreaking inter-plugin communication technology, opening the door to a number of exciting and essential new workflows, like the brand new Intelligibility Meter. Feed information from a track in inter-plugin communication compatible iZotope plug-ins to the Intelligibility Meter in insight 2, and get easy to understand visual feedback on how comprehensible your busy mix is. We’ve included targets for tricky noise environments to make sure your mix’s dialogue can be heard in just about any listening situation.

Redesigned UI

Insight 2 has an updated design that matches the rest of the iZotope family. The most important targets are visually emphasized and the meters are now coloured to warn you if you’re drifting away from a given target.


Now you can easily resize individual meters in the main window by clicking and dragging between two meter frames. Additionally, the main window can now be resized to be as small as the smallest meter—perfect for throwing your loudness meters up in the corner of your third monitor! You can customize Insight 2 to build the ideal set up for whatever project your working on, whether it’s music or post production.

For music production

For the music-minded, Insight 2 takes the guesswork out of your complex mixes. With presets (called Layouts) that are designed for every stage of music production, you can deliver the optimum mix the first time around helping you save time and money when mixing and mastering audio by monitoring your track with the highest accuracy.

For audio post production

For the post-minded, Insight 2 is perfect for visualizing changes made during mixing and mastering, troubleshooting problematic mixes, and ensuring compliance with broadcast loudness standards (including targets for USA, Europe, and Japan). And Insight 2 supports multichannel audio, up to Dolby Atmos 7.1.2!

With Insight 2, seeing really is believing.
