Standalone Referencing App
Whether you are an engineer finding the right balance on a final master for a client or a producer making sure your song will stack up on a playlist, you likely rely on reference tracks to find the sound you are aiming for.
But, comparing your mix or master to other songs can be a really tedious process, until now.
Audiolens, a new app from iZotope, makes track referencing and comparison easy by analyzing audio from any streaming platform or audio source.
Save the tonal data of your references to your Audiolens Target Library to build a personal catalog of reference track data that you can access anytime to compare against your own work.
When paired with our AI-powered Assistant technology in Neutron 4 and Ozone 10, Audiolens completely transforms your mixing and mastering reference workflow by adding the ability to match the tonal characteristics of your chosen reference.
The new Audiolens desktop app makes track referencing and comparison easy by analyzing audio from any streaming platform or audio source.
Play your chosen audio through the selected output of your device and the application will collect data on key sonic characteristics, helping you to visualize, compare, and match your favorite reference tracks and sounds.
Simply Reference from Streaming
Save time by capturing the analysis from Audiolens as a reference track so that you can use it in mixing and mastering without the need for downloading media files or setting up tedious audio routing setups.
Audiolens is a perfect companion app, integrating seamlessly with iZotope plug-ins Ozone 10 and Neutron 4 where you can match your references and fine-tune your sound using the AI Assistants.
Use with Ozone 10
Audiolens will automatically populate saved referenced targets to your Ozone 10 Target Library so you can visualize how your master stacks up to your chosen reference.
Run the AI-powered Master Assistant to match the tone, dynamics, and width profiles of the desired track to your own master, and dial in additional adjustments using the Assistant View.
Use with Neutron 4
Audiolens will automatically populate saved reference targets to your Neutron 4 Target Library where they will be analyzed by Neutron's Assistant.
You can then quickly match characteristics within the mix of your own track, whether that’s adding some thump to your bass, crisping up your snare, or making hi-hats sizzle.
Further customize your sound by using the Assistant View to dial in your mix elements.
Save the tonal data of your references to your Audiolens Target Library to build a personal catalog of reference track data that you can access anytime.
Name your tracks so you can quickly find the sounds you want to match, and compare tonal balance profiles with ease.
The Target Library talks to Ozone 10 and Neutron 4, automatically populating your references to those plug-ins if you have them.
About Reference Tracks
Producers and engineers use track referencing during music production, mixing, and mastering.
Referencing is the process of comparing the dynamic range and character of your song to songs of a similar genre and style to your desired sound.
A reference track's dynamic range and sonic character can be used to communicate the sound you're aiming for in your mix or master.
Reference tracks are also a way to develop musical vocabulary that will help communication when you're working on a song with other people.
