iZotope Alloy 2 Signal Processing Software Suite at a Glance:
Shape your tracks with Alloy 2's powerful 8-band EQ
Alloy 2's powerful 8-band EQ combines exceptional sonic quality with precise controls and a large spectrum overlay that gives you the best visual feedback of any EQ available. Enter EQ settings visually or with precise numerical values. You have the choice of Low Shelf, High Shelf, Peak, Lowpass, Sharp Lowpass, Highpass and Sharp Highpass modes for each band, and soft-saturation faithfully emulates analog EQs for a natural sound when pushed hard. For troubleshooting, Alt-click and use your mouse to solo and zero in on problem frequencies.
Add brilliance, warmth, and crunch to your mix with the fully-redesigned Exciter
Alloy 2's fully-redesigned Exciter features Harmonic Scaling technology that lets you add gentle saturation to your tracks by emulating the sounds of tube pre-amps, tape, and other hardware devices in a unique new way. It's perfect for adding subtle character to everything from vocals to strings to drums. Blend between different Harmonic profiles including Tube, Tape, Transistor and more with an XY pad. Switch to Multiband mode to apply color to different frequency ranges independently. The unique spectrum meter shows you which frequencies are being affected by the Exciter, and the integrated stereo width control allows you to narrow or widen different frequency bands.
Up the smash factor with Transient Shaper
Shape percussive sounds and more with Alloy 2's Transient Shaper module. Add more "stick" to a snare, make a kick drum less boomy, or even apply Transient Shaper to hammered or plucked instruments to fine tune their attack character. Try Multiband mode for unmatched shaping of more complex material like drum loops and busses. Concise controls let you boost or cut the attack and sustain portions of transients with adjustable time values. Adjust sounds in different frequency ranges with powerful Multiband mode.
Dynamics gives you the best characteristics of both analog and digital compressors
Smooth out vocals or slam your drum buss with a Dynamics module that combines the best characteristics of analog and digital compressors. While many "vintage emulated" dynamics plug-ins are useful on only some material, Alloy can switch between tasks with ease. And with advanced sidechaining and a multiband mode this is sure to become one of the most versatile mixing tools in your arsenal.
Squash pesky sibilance with De-Esser
Tame vocal sibilance and harsh high frequencies in other instruments. Alloy 2's De-Esser lets you zero in on sibilant frequencies with a simple-to-use spectrum graph. It's perfect for transparently reigning in vocals, cymbals and other high frequency problem spots. The spectrum meter with solo control helps you set the De-Esser quickly and easily. Multiband mode affects just the sibilant frequencies, while Broadband mode affects the whole signal based on the sibilant band.
Give your mixes max slam factor with Alloy's Limiter module
Alloy 2's Limiter module acts as a zero latency loudness maximizer for busses and tracks, automatically adding gain as you pull down the threshold. Or use it to keep a lid on your levels with a simple and efficient Brickwall limiter. Brickwall mode keeps peaks under zero at all times, or use Soft mode for more forgiving, smooth limiting. Phase Tools panel lets you optimize the symmetry of vocal and instrument waveforms to get more overall loudness, and zero-latency mode ensures your tracks and busses stay in sync, even in hosts without effective latency compensation.
Over 250 easy-to-deploy Presets
Some plug-ins come with five or ten presets. Alloy comes with over 250 presets designed to give you the perfect starting point for a broad range of mixing tasks. Presets customize Alloy 2's display to show you just the sliders and meters you need for the task at hand, giving you powerful preset signal chains with simple controls, making each preset feel like its own custom-tailored plug-in. Presets also combine the most useful parameters and meters for a preset into one useful view.

My new "GO TO" plugin channel
by Andy Pearson from Valdosta, GAI never thought that anything would replace my Waves SSL 4000 for a channel plugin. The Waves SSL 4000 has been my "go to" plugin channel for years. It is simple, sounds great, and it is reliable. The... read more [+] Alloy 2 was bought mainly for the transient shaper and limiter, but I found out that it easily replaces the SSL and does so much more. If you can not make it sound good with this plugin on it, then it needs to be retaped. It is that simple. close [-]

Alloy 2 is simply awesome

Overall, Very Impressed

Great for the more advanced engineers who understand the delicate balance between dynamics, color, and space, but can be overwhelming and quite frustrating for the rookie as this all-in-one tool makes it far too easy to overdo and pump & squash your track into a bloated mess.

Love the different circuitry models and the option to switch to multi-band mode. I would've given it a solid 5 stars had I not been a little underwhelmed by the limiter. It seems (to me) to be less accurate that it's big brother, oZone 5. close [-]
