A modern twist on classic mixing, Alloy 2 is designed to take the traditional channel strip and bring it into the future with powerful sound-shaping tools, exceptional sound quality, and a streamlined workflow. Alloy 2 is intended for engineers, musicians, and producers looking to sculpt their sound while addressing common mix issues.
- 6 powerful tools in one integrated plug-in: Equalizer, Dynamics, Exciter, De-Esser, Transient Shaper and Limiter.
- Allows for balance of vintage emulation with digital precision.
- Results can be heard immediately with zero latency performance, whether tracking in real-time or in the midst of a mix session.
- Rich meter displays to guide the way.
- 250 presets and advanced controls.
What's New for Alloy 2
Users of Alloy 1 will benefit from Alloy's sonic enhancements, highlights of which include a redesigned Exciter module, a revamped multiband Transient Shaper, a host of new EQ filters, including Treble and Bass Baxandall filters, and more. Alloy 2 users will also click less to achieve more thanks to both a fully overhauled user interface, enlarged to make more controls accessible, and a new Overview panel that dynamically adjusts to show only the most relevant settings of the modules in play.
With low CPU usage and zero latency operation, Alloy 2 can be used again and again across a wide range of tracks and buses, making it the mixing complement to iZotope's flagship mastering suites, Ozone 5 and Ozone 5 Advanced. To this end, Alloy 2 also features an internal Meter Tap, which provides immediate visual feedback from Alloy 2's tracks and buses in the Ozone 5 Advanced Meter Bridge.
