Tonal Balance Control 2 can also talk to plug-ins like iZotope Nectar 3 or VocalSynth 2, letting you see how your vocal fits into your overall balance.

Work in Broad view mode to get a general bird’s eye of your mix, or switch to Fine view to zoom in on tough problem areas. Solo frequencies to hear exactly what’s contributing to your tonal balance, and quickly fix issues on your tracks with improved scaling that makes it easier to work with EQs in Ozone 9 or Neutron 3*

* Ozone, Neutron, Nectar, and other compatible iZotope plug-ins are not included with the purchase of Tonal Balance Control 2.

Target Curves *Updated in version 2!

Drawn from analysis of decades of recorded audio across the spectrum of styles and genres, Tonal Balance Control 2 offers a set of 12 target curves that help give you fix balance issues in your sound, even in poor listening environments. Whether your style calls for massive low-end or brilliant highs, you'll always have a benchmark with genre curves from "rock" to "reggae" and more.

Load your own reference track to generate a unique curve: see the balance of your favourite songs, and fine-tune your master to match their sound. Use the target curves to keep your music on track and help it translate to your audience!

  • New! Tonal Balance Control 2 includes 9 new genre-cased targets, for a total of 12 curves. Now you can measure you tonal balance in styles like Jazz, R&B/Hip-Hop, and Pop. See how your music translates for top-50 radio play, or the classical crowd!
  • Use Broad or Fine view modes to get a different perspective on your tonal balance. Broad view measures the general balance between low, low-mid, hi-mid, and hi frequency regions to give you an at-a-glance picture. Fine view lets you zoom in to catch smaller balance issues in a more narrow range.
  • Load your own audio file and generate a unique custom curve, perfect for when you're mastering to a reference track, or comparing two versions of a mix.

Find and Fix Issues In The Mix

Tonal Balance Control 2 is more than just a meter — by talking to the included Relay plug-in, you can make level adjustments to your tracks while checking your tonal balance in real-time.

If you have Neutron 3 or Ozone 9 in your session, you can open their EQs from Tonal Balance Control 2 and make finer tonal adjustments to your individual tracks or master. Combine the power of iZotope tools and bring your session together to speed up your mixing and mastering workflow!

  • New! Use Relay to view the spectrum of your tracks against your tonal balance targets. You can now make changes to Relay's gain controls from Tonal Balance Control 2 for quick adjustments against your target.
  • Talk to the EQ of any Ozone 9 or Neutron 3 plug-in in your session to make finer balance tweaks without changing the gain.
  • Use your alt/option key to "solo" frequency areas, useful for identifying what elements of your mix make up the overall tonal balance.

iZotope Relay

Relay is included in Tonal Balance Control 2 and goes on your individual tracks, acting as a mini-channel strip complete with gain, pan, high pass, and even stereo width controls. Relay also talks to other iZotope plug-ins, enabling machine-learning features to help you remove masking, bring balance and focus your mix, monitor dialogue intelligibility, and more. As a quick and easy trimming or sweetening tool, or an advanced workflow-saver, Relay is a great choice for any session template.

  • Control pan, gain, width, and add a high pass filter to your track without messing with your DAW faders or consuming a lot of CPU.
  • View the frequency of individual tracks in Tonal Balance Control 2 against your target curves, and adjust them against your balance targets in real-time.
  • Mix all of your tracks in a visual space with Neutron 3’s Visual Mixer: With Relay on your tracks or busses, you can open Visual Mixer and adjust pan, gain, and width directly within the Visual Mixer plug-in, included with Neutron 3 Advanced.
  • Measure Intelligibility with Insight 2’s Intelligibility Meter: Using this brand new meter in Insight 2, measure the relative intelligibility of your vocal and visualize how clearly it will be heard in different types of listening environments.
  • Remove masking from your vocal with Nectar 3: Relay communicates with Nectar 3’s Unmask mode and provides automatic processing to remove masking frequencies from your vocal track. Learn more about it here.
  • Visualize the spectrum of different tracks against your entire mix with the Spectrogram in Insight 2: Insight 2 will communicate with individual instances of Relay and display them on your spectrogram, with customizable colours.
  • With Relay on all your tracks, you can use Mix Assistant (available in Neutron 3 Advanced) to automatically set an initial level balance in your session.

*Relay is included for free with Tonal Balance Control 2, Neutron 3 Advanced, Insight 2, and Nectar 3.
