Sony Licenses iZotope Mastering Technology

Multiband Compressor plug-in

iZotope announced that it has licensed mastering technology to Sony Creative Software for the Sound Forge Version 9 ($399.95) professional digital audio production suite. Its Mastering Effects Bundle incorporates iZotope’s 64-bit processing and includes the Mastering Reverb, Multiband Compressor, IRC Limiter Loudness Maximizer and Analog EQ Parametric Equalizer plug-ins.

The Mastering Reverb plug-in is designed to add a consistent sense of depth and space to a mix. The Multiband Compressor provides up to four bands of limiting, compression and expansion with real-time visualization of the dynamics within each band. The IRC Limiter Loudness Maximizer allows users to create an overall louder or fuller master by limiting the dynamic range and boosting the perceived overall level of the mix. The Analog EQ Parametric Equalizer combines six bands of adjustable bell filters and low/high-shelf filters with analog modeling.
