iZotope has updated its Neutron and Neutron Advanced mixing plugins for Windows and Mac to version 1.01.

The Neutron mixing plug-in combines five great-sounding new processors with the latest in intelligent metering and analysis. Like having a virtual assistant, Neutron can listen to your audio, identify instruments, and offer tailored starting points for creating powerful mixes with focus and clarity while leaving all the creative control to you. The revolutionary new Masking Meter can help you visually identify frequency collisions between instruments, allowing you to tweak each track so it sits better in the mix. Optimized for mixing, you can use this on dozens of tracks to carve away muddiness and reveal new sonic possibilities in your mixes.
