Differences between Ozone and Neutron

April 29, 2016

Ozone 7 is designed to be used on your mix bus or on your stereo bounces in a stand alone application.  The processing in this plug-in is very powerful and is best suited for use after the mix has been completed.  It also comes as a stand-alone application so you can master your exported audio in a dedicated environment, taking advantage of Ozone's powerful processing features.  

Neutron is designed to be placed on individual tracks in your mix. it is meant to act as a channel-strip plug-in with EQ, Compression, Saturation, and Transient Shaping.  It also includes industry-first features such as Track Assistant, which automatically detects what instrument is on the track and can make intelligent mixing adjustments for you.

Here are a few key features of Neutron that will greatly benefit Ozone users:

*Zero Latency mode, perfect for hearing sonic improvements in live tracking situations.

*Efficient CPU usage, making it possible to place Neutron on multiple tracks and buses with ease.

*Vintage-style compression, which mimics the punchy character of classic analog compressors.

*Powerful Transient Shaper, for easy and creative shaping of percussive sounds.

*More expressive Exciter, with a broader range of subtlety and grit for enhancing your mix.

*Versatile sidechaining and crosschaining capabilities, for completely creative dynamics possibilities.

*Track Assistant, which intelligently "listens" to your audio and assigns custom preset settings based on machine learning analysis 

* Masking Meter, which lets you visualize areas of frequency "collisions" between tracks where Neutron is placed.
