Available now exclusively as a download, iZotope Alloy offers users an entire channel strip in a single plug-in. On large format mixing consoles, each channel is likely to have an EQ, gate and compressor. Alloy gives the same options to DAW users with the addition of a harmonic exciter (this can be used as a multiband harmonic exciter), limiter, de-esser and transient shaper. Similar in functionality to iZotope’s Ozone 4 mastering software, Alloy has been retooled and stripped down to allow for multiple plug-ins to run simultaneously with less strain on your CPU, while still employing the same great sound and metering for an incredible value.
