iZotope has released Insight, which provides a full suite of audio analysis and metering tools 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 advanced metering technology, 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 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 exceptional flexibility in the metering space.
“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.”
—Immediately detect potential mix problems through real-time visual monitoring and color-coded alerts.
—Ensure audio is fully compliant with current loudness standards with forward-thinking tools that adhere to standards like BS.1770-1/2/3, then document adherence with an exportable log or graph.
—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 view by choosing the meters you want to see, 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 Meters, Loudness Meters, Loudness History Graph, Stereo Vectorscope, Surround Scope, 2D/3D Spectrogram, and Spectrum Analyzer.
