Neutron is a fantastic piece of voodoo mixing technology

Automated mixing and track assistant technology, sounds like witchcraft. But it is what Izotope’s Neutron promises. Izotope’s Neutron is a fantastic piece of voodoo mixing technology.

I don’t usually write film reviews. Being in the business of writing music for film and television, I tend to stay out of it.
