Parallel to the Neutron 4 release, iZotope releases Music Production Suite 5 Universal Edition. Not only is the new Neutron 4 mixing suite included in the iZotope flagship mixing and mastering plugin bundle. Two new reverbs called Stratus 3D and Symphony 3D by Exponential Audio, and six new effect plugins from iZotope’s partner, Brainworx, have been added to Music Production Suite 5.
With 52 plug-ins included at launch, Music Production Suite 5 Universal Edition includes a comprehensive array of tools, from creative effects and sonic shaping, to assistive mixing, vocal production, mastering, repair, and balancing. iZotope increasingly includes AI-powered audio assistants to help the user with personalized starting points.
What’s new in iZotope Music Production Suite 5 Universal Edition:
Neutron 4 for mixing
Symphony 3D (M1 native coming Fall/ Autumn 2022) for immersive reverb
Stratus 3D (M1 native coming Fall/ Autumn 2022) for immersive surround environments
Brainworx bx_delay 2500 for delays
Brainworx bx_boom! to make kick drums big
Brainworx bx_saturator V2 to add multiband saturation
Brainworx bx_subsynth for adding sub bass
Brainworx bx_cleansweep Pro to clean up sounds
Brainworx bx_refinement to tame harshness
Plus: Two additional flagship iZotope product updates as soon as they are released (coming Fall/ Autumn 2022)
The list of plugins now included in Music Production Suite 5 extends to:
Ozone 9 Advanced
Nectar 3 Plus
RX 9 Standard
Brainworx Creative Mixing Set
Symphony 3D by Exponential Audio
Stratus 3D by Exponential Audio
Tonal Balance Control 2
Celemony Melodyne Essential
M1 Apple silicon native support for all iZotope products in the bundle, including Ozone 9 Advanced, RX 9 Standard, Nectar 3 Plus, Neoverb, VocalSynth 2 and more.
There is no doubt that iZotope produces high-quality music software. So getting your hands on 52 of them puts any producer or engineer into a plush position.
Adding not just the latest Neutron 4, but also plugins from the Soundwide partner brainworx, and the reverb specialist Exponential Audio, increase your possibilities.
Whether version 5 is worth buying, or upgrading to, is a more difficult decision. The Full Price is very high at $1,000. However, when you look at the upgrade options, which leave the door open to anyone buying the bundle for $400, at less than $10 per module, Music Production Suite 5 looks a bit better value for money.
