iZotope announces Insight—Essential Metering Suite

iZotope has announced Insight, an essential metering suite for post production and broadcast applications.

More than just a traditional metering plugin, Insight provides the valuable visual feedback imperative to the mixing and mastering stages of any audio project. In addition, Insight offers peace of mind and added security to audio engineers seeking compliance with BS.1770 loudness standards, as specified by regulations like the CALM Act.

Insight provides a full suite of audio analysis and metering tools, perfect for visualizing changes made during mixing and mastering, troubleshooting problematic mixes, and ensuring compliance with broadcast loudness standards. Fully customizable and scalable, Insight allows you to visually monitor all relevant information from your stereo or surround mix in a convenient floating window. With level meters, loudness meters, a spectrogram, spectrum analyzer, vectorscope, surround scope, and a loudness history graph, Insight allows you to keep an eye as well as an ear on your mix at all times.

Insight features

  • Immediately detect potential mix problems through real-time visual monitoring and color-coded alerts.
  • Ensure your audio is fully compliant with current loudness standards with forward-thinking tools that adhere to standards like BS.1770-1/2/3.
  • Perform deep and flexible analysis with zoomable meters and the ability to route audio from any tracks or buses to Insight.
  • Design your ideal metering plug-in by choosing the meters you want to view, customizing them, and resizing the Insight window to fit your current workflow.
  • Get an extensive suite of metering tools in a single plug-in, including true-peak level meters, loudness meters, loudness history graph, stereo vectorscope, surround meter, 2D/3D spectrogram, and spectrum analyzer.

Insight will be released mid-November, 2012. Insight will be available separately and will be included with all purchases of Ozone 5 Advanced. Upon Insight’s launch, all existing Ozone 5 Advanced customers will be notified with details to install Insight for free.
