Now this is a new marketing approach! Good idea if you ask me. I’ve been curious about the Visual Mixer for awhile…
Looks interesting, I actually don’t know much about those iZotope products so I’ll be interested to hear what you think. I think my plugin cup overfloweth, but didn’t someone utter the wise words “never say never”. It does seem like a good marketing approach since you get free tools no matter what.
Trying out the Neutron for 10 days and uninstalling could be a significant time commitment, though I guess there’s no commitment to use it if you don’t plan on purchasing a license.
Just to follow up - I finally had a chance to play with it last night. The Visual Mixer is basically a fancy gadget. It visually shows (and let’s you change) the panning and gain and width of whichever tracks you put the Relay on. Interesting idea, but kind of a bit of trouble for something you’re probably already doing anyway. Then again, it lets you do it in one place. That’s my first impression anyway. Neat idea though.
Thanks for the review! Maybe one of those things that a DAW will incorporate into itself the future so that it’s automatic for all tracks, and you just pull up the management window when you want to use it … kind of like Reaper’s Track Manager.
