iZotope Alloy 2 Signal Processing Software Suite at a Glance:
  • Shape your tracks with Alloy 2's powerful 8-band EQ
  • Add brilliance, warmth, and crunch to your mix with the fully-redesigned Exciter
  • Up the smash factor with Transient Shaper

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.

Izotope Alloy 2

I love the simplicity of this plugin, The fact that you have everything you need in one plugin without searching for other to added whether its drum buss, loop or bass and lead guitar, or even vocals its a versatile plugin. Izotope has its own unique lane that it runs in, grap it watch video on how to use and get it crackin'. #workflow

Alloy 2 is Perfect

If you're a voice over artist,and you've never quite been satisfied with the way your current recording software treats your voice,then get Alloy 2.It's just about magical how the settings can help your work, no matter whether it be narration,commercials, character work etc. It just has a brillance like no other.

Great Bundle

iZotope is always a great way to "see" what you are hearing. And thus a great way to learn how things like EQ and compression work. Of course it's best to use your ears. But for self taught audio engineers like myself, it is a great start.For advanced engineers, the multiple modules make it better for the advanced mixing techniques. Also having more tools allows you to diversify your sound. Long story short, it is a must have for all serious audio engineers.

Very nice and intuitive

This plugin is very nice. It is based on the Ozone platform. I used it on a vocal bus for a track I was working on. I dialed in a preset, made some modifications and the voice came to life. I love the dresser too. They did a nice job on this plugin.

Alloy 2 is simply awesome

One of the best values in the plugin world I've come across yet. Just outstanding, sonically. Easy to use. Presets are brilliant, both as a point of departure, and even to use as-is for some stuff. I know that sounds like blasphemy, but it's a testament to how good they sound. Got a good price at Sweetwater, and happy all around.

Sweetwater Advice

Tyler Berggren

There really aren't any other channel strip plugins that compare to iZotope Alloy 2. This is often the first tool that I turn to when I need to carve a track into a mix. The EQ is extremely flexible and quick to dial in. The dynamics section offers a transparent compressor and well-thought-out gate. The de-esser is very easy to get right. Probably the most underrated part of Alloy is the exciter, which offers a myriad of saturation modes that all sound really good. On top of all that, there are plenty of amazing presets included that offer great starting points for processing any audio signal.
