Product Overview

Scottie Dugan follows up “Neutron Explained” with a video tutorial series on mixing a pop rock track exclusively with iZotope Neutron. See how you can now mix your own tracks easily with awesome results!

Scottie begins by playing you the song you’ll be mixing together, followed by revealing the basic steps to add clarity and punch.

The drums are then gone over, and Scottie uses Neutron to bring them to life as well as tame them. Guitars, Synths and effects are then explored and Neutron is applied to make them fit and sit just right.

Scottie then uses Neutron on the vocals to make them stand out and be the focus of the track. Finally, Scottie moves to the master bus, dialing in Neutron to add the “glue” that makes the track sound finished and polished.
