Still one of the best distortion effects. But distortion is not the only function where it excels. Its compressor is a top notch. It is transparent and very effective on any source. I have sold other compressors that I had, becuase there was no point to keep dozens of comps for electronic music. In most cases I don't need a coloration on my audio. The color is added before the compression. Trash 2 can be bought very cheap, but its compressor can rival a more expensive alternativies with ease and also easily beats my DAW stock comps. Recommended.
The only issue with the Trash 2 is that it cannot save its own Quality settings, aka oversampling. Each time I load the same project, the settings are reset.
The sounds that come out of this are outstanding. The best sounding synth i have. It taxes you on the CPU resources, u just have to learn to bounce tracks more to work with it. I would have gave it a 4 because of this, but again the sound is so amazing its a 5. I can't believe izotope no longer updates this.
Very good plugin, i have to say here. It isn't only a Metering/Analyze Tool, it's even got a Spatial/Stereo Width Section; but mostly i use it only for Metering purpose and it is very good at this. Very good, Can't believe that this is a free one, thanks iZotope! This really made me hungry of the whole Ozone Station.
iZotope Neutrino is a very straightforward plugin with only two knobs and four processing selections depending on the track you're running through it. I downloaded this plugin a few months ago and am very happy with how it adds color and sparkle to vocals, thick and grungy attitude to bass tracks, fullness to drums, and largeness to guitars and other instruments. I find that I use it occasionally on my vocal tracks, as it adds a subtle but pleasant edge to help them stand out in my mixes when nothing else seems to do the trick. It behaves well with other instruments, though being over-generous with the knobs can cause harm to your tracks due to the personally unpleasant coloration it adds when pushed too hard.
Vinyl is a good plugin that adds noises to your track. You'll have a lot of option and all the noises generated are really great. It's maybe only my taste but when I use it I feel that all the noises are too much just at 30%. The best use that I do with it is to add noises to emulate vintage instruments or recording. For example, I use it in addition to the B3 Organ and a Leslie rotation speaker to have a 60' gospel organ sound.
I use it with logic pro x 10.4.2 and high sierra. never a crash or a problem.
