iZotope releases Trash 2—Distort, mangle & transform audio

iZotope has announced the release of Trash 2, an audio mangling and distortion device for Windows and Mac.

iZotope Trash 2
Completely rewritten from the ground up, Trash 2 has an entirely new sonic architecture, brand new features, optimized performance, better sound quality, and support for modern hosts and formats.

It’s been a decade since Trash first arrived as the ultimate distortion toolkit. As the years have passed, it’s remained a cult favorite of artists such as Nine Inch Nails, Noisia, Garbage, Ko?n, Sigur Rós, and anyone looking to add dirt, grime, and character to their tracks. Fully overhauled from Trash 1, Trash 2 adds a wealth of new features including twenty new distortion algorithms, fresh filter modules, fifty new impulse responses, multiband waveshaping, 64-bit and AAX support and much more.

“For Trash 2, we wanted increase the level of freedom in the features that Trash 1 users loved best,” explains Product Manager Jack Côté. “Now you can have even more influence over your sound, whether you’re loading your own impulse responses, creating new filter combinations, or designing and editing your own multiband waveshapes. With Trash 2, it’s a new era of personalized distortion.”

Trash 2 features

  • Distort in ways you never dreamed with the Trash module’s 60+ distortion algorithms, perfect for transforming your sound into something never before heard.
  • Design your own unique distortions, from massive to mild and everything in between, with a new, customizable, multiband Waveshaper.
  • Let your tracks inhabit any space or object with the new Convolve module. Choose from over 100 impulse responses, or load your own to put your bass in a washing machine or your keys in a cave.
  • Find a new voice: make your audio speak and growl with two redesigned Filters, each one featuring new vowel formant filters, screaming peaks, node modulations, and more.
  • Start trashing your audio immediately with an extensive new preset library and an ear-friendly Limiter that ensures you can play without fear.

For even more sonic mayhem, add the Edge Expansion Pack to Trash 2.

Full of extra-exotic and extra-gritty presets for a broad range of sonic treatments, the Edge Expansion Pack is perfect for unconventional guitars, synth basses, synth pads, drum mangling, and more. With 30 new impulse responses for further tone coloring and 70 new presets built directly for these impulses, the Edge Expansion content was born to bring out the best of Trash 2′s classic out-there sound.

Trash 2 is available to purchase for the introductory price of $149 USD through December 6th, 2012 (regular $249 USD MSRP, €195 EUR). The Trash 2 Edge Expansion Pack is available for $29 USD / €25 EUR.

For a limited time, Trash 2 will be available as part of iZotope’s new Creative Bundle which includes Trash 2, the Trash 2 Edge Expansion, Iris+5, and Stutter Edit. This collection is priced at $499 USD / €399 EUR, and available until December 31st, 2012.

Trash 1 customers who purchased on or after October 1, 2012 will receive upgrades to Trash 2 for free. For Trash 1 owners who purchased prior to October 1, 2012, special upgrade pricing of $99 USD will be available.

iZotope releases Insight – Essential Metering Suite

iZotope Insight

iZotope has announced the release of its Insight essential metering suite for post production and broadcast applications.

Insight provides a full suite of audio analysis and metering tools, perfect for visualizing changes made during the mixing process, troubleshooting problematic mixes, and ensuring compliance with broadcast loudness standards. Fully customizable and scalable, Insight allows audio engineers to visually monitor all relevant information from a mix in a convenient floating window, empowering users to look deeper into their audio with intelligent analysis tools and real-time monitoring capabilities.

Insight helps ensure adherence to current broadcast standards using the most advanced metering technology available today, with meters for immediate loudness calculation and True Peak detection, loudness calculation over time, and faster than real-time offline loudness calculation. Advanced visualization and spatialization displays further aid in detecting problems that the ears cannot perceive, like the innovative new Surround Scope and the 3D Spectrogram. Also included are convenient user presets, designed for an array of engineering applications, for quick and easy access to common metering and loudness configurations. Alternatively, users can define new presets with their own preferred customizations, giving Insight unmatched flexibility in the metering space. The perfect tool for post, broadcast, and music engineers, video editors, and sound designers, Insight allows users to keep an eye as well as an ear on the mix at all times.

“iZotope is excited to offer broadcast, post and audio engineers an elegant metering solution that can be custom fit to any workspace and workflow,” says Brett Bunting, Insight Product Manager. “Unlike other metering products, Insight integrates a full collection of state-of-the-art meters into one customizable window, allowing you to easily monitor and visualize all aspects of your audio.”

  • Design your ideal metering view by choosing the meters you want to see, customizing them, and resizing the Insight window to fit your current workflow.
