    In this video, we cover the differences between the Standard and Advanced versions of Neutron 3 and also discuss the features of the Suite.

  • image description 4:18

    The Interface & Signal Flow

    We now cover the interface of the Mothership Plug-in, including Presets and Signal Flow.

  • image description 12:44

    Basic Mix Balance Using Mix Assistant

    In this video, see how to use Neutron 3's Visual Mixer to create a basic volume balance for your mix. Using Izotope's Inter Plug-In Communication Technology (IPC) the visual mixer talks to the individual Relay Plug-Ins to create the mix balance. We then tweak this further using the Visual Mixer?s Groups Parameter.

  • image description 3:50

    Visual Mixer Parameters

    Larry explains and explores the Visual Mixer's ability to adjust volume, pan and width on any sound with a Neutron 3 or Relay Plug-In loaded on its channel. Also see how to save mix snapshots using the Snapshots feature.

  • image description 7:13

    The Track Assistant

    In this video, Larry goes over the Track Assistant feature and how to create a custom preset for our vocal using modules from Neutron 3. He then explains the different settings used to tailor the processing.

  • image description 10:09

    The Neutron 3 Gate

    Discover the features of the Neutron 3 Gate module including the metering options, open and close threshold and ratio, attack, hold and release functions.

  • image description 4:04

    The Gate Advanced Tab

    In this video, Larry demonstrates how to create choppy rhythmic effects using the Neutron 3 Gate Module.

  • image description 7:15

    The Equalizer Pt. 1

    Get a detailed overview of the EQ module interface and the different ways in which you interact with the visual display, including the various types of shapes and general parameters.

  • image description 10:44

    The Equalizer Pt. 2

    Larry now goes over the Advanced Tab of the EQ module so you know how to work dynamically and also utilize the sidechain feature, which can be used to make the EQ react to another area of the frequency range, or even an external signal.

  • image description 9:42

    The Masking Meter

    In this video, see how to use the Equalizer Masking Meter to create space between the Kick and Bass in a Tech House track, utilizing the Histogram displays and Inverse Link to sculpt the respective frequency spectrums of the 2 sounds.

  • image description 12:34

    The Compressor Module Pt. 1

    In this first video, we go through the parameters of the Compressor Module and its Interface. We also demo the compressor in Expander Mode allowing it to enhance the snap of a drum loop.

  • image description 6:52

    The Compressor Module Pt. 2

    Moving on, Larry shows how to bring out the low end of a live drum loop using the sidechain feature of the compressor, and also how to sidechain the full mix to the vocal part to create a mix that has the vocal out front.

  • image description 7:12

    The Transient Shaper

    In this video, learn all the parameters of the Transient Shaper and then how to use it to fix a drum sound that is lacking in punch.

  • image description 9:14

    The Exciter Module

    Larry now teaches you about the controls on the Exciter module and then demonstrates the enhancement of perceived volume vs transient energy.

  • image description 9:31

    The Sculptor Module

    Having gone through the parameters of this plug-in, Larry now loads it up on different buses to enhance the individual groups of the mixdown.

  • image description 14:48

    Tonal Balance Control

    Wrapping it up, Larry explains the features of Tonal Balance Control and then uses its functionality to access EQs from the mix to make broad stable adjustments, having seen the Tonal Balance readout. Finally, Larry loads a Neutron 3 Mothership instance in order to use various modules to again massage the mix's sounds with tonal balance in mind.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I learnt the trumpet and piano around age 12 and then guitar a couple of years later. I played in a few indie bands for a few years until I discovered the turntables and Dj'ing. I then swapped the guitar for the synthesizer and the stage for the Dj booth and the rest is history!

2. What training have you had?

I completed a diploma in sound engineering and music technology from islington Music Workshop in London. I am also level 1 certified in Logic. The most important training I have received though is sitting for hours on end at my studio making music!

3. When did you get into recording?

Recording demos for the indie bands I mentioned earlier. Then recording vocals for my tracks as DEF inc. and laterally Rebel Sonix. I also worked in London studio Rollover in around 2005.

4. People you have worked with/for?

I've remixed Coldplay, Kylie, Roots Manuva and John B. Labels I have released on include Parlaphone, EMI, Fingerlickin, Eight Fx, Quantum, Botchit and Scarper amongst others. I have composed music for Sony Playstation games, Sky tv, J&B Whiskey, Lexus cars and the BBC to name a few. I have produced online tutorial videos and have had a 1 hour production video in Music Techs magazines cover DVD. I have also Dj'ed at events such as Glastonbury festival and Miami WMC and touring extensively all over the world.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

Well hopefully I have a clear and concise training method mixed with a serious passion for making music. I have previously worked for Apple teaching Logic and also regularly lecture on Logic and electronic music production. I also teach the Ministry of Sound DJ academy in London which involves teaching an introduction to Djing as well as in depth seminars on using NI's Traktor and also Serato Scratch Live. As a producer making cutting edge electronic music, I have to remain at the forefront of new sounds and production techniques. I mix my time between different areas of the music industry - production, remixing, DJing and also teaching which allows me to develop all those skills simultaneously - so I can improve my teaching ability whilst also continuing to develop as a producer (something which you never stop doing!)
