I am not a big fan of newer Izotope products mainly because they are very hungry CPU eaters. The older plugins do not have that obesity issue... Having said that, the only recent product that I found to be light on CPU and very useful is Visual Mixer. And it turns out to be a free one, with download of Neutron 3 DEMO.

So if you decide to give it a try, here is the link:
https://www.izotope.com/en/products/visual-mixer.html

Download Neutron 3 demo, once you do that you will get an email from Izotope with 2 serial numbers for Mixer and Relay. You need both components to use it. After it installs, if you do not have interest in Neutron 3, just go to your VST folder and delete newly installed Izotope plugins except for iZNeutron3VisualMixer and iZRelay
Start your DAW and authorize those two items with serial numbers from email. Done.

Here is a short tutorial:

I think you need to have Neutron 3 on each track in your DAW for the Visual Mixer to do its thing. Therefore, you have to authorize Neutron demo (pay for it) to get the value of the freebee. I may be wrong on this ? crazy.

No, you do not need Neutron3.
Visual mixer and relays are separate plugins that do what they need to do by themselves, without the need of extra software.

In short. Visual Mixer is a panner, volume controller and stereo widener, that works across / on all your tracks in a "single" interface without the need of going to individual tracks. Very convenient and intuitive.

OK, thanks for the heads up. Turns out I have Neutron 3 Essentials but not this little add on. Let me see how this works for me.

Thanks again

True. The relay is for tracks that do not have an instance of neutron3 on them. If the track has neutron3 on it already already, it doesn't need the relay.

The real trick to the Visual Mixer is to start with all tracks about the same level. Let the Visual Mixer do the work. Be a bit careful widening the various tracks however.

I almost always have Neutron 3 on every track and things are fine. I do however get a fair bit of latency when Ozone 9 is doing its thing on the master track. Other wise things run well.

My experiences

Upgrading to Band-in-a-Box® 2020 is Easy!

Did you know... anyone who has owned a previous version of Band-in-a-Box® is entitle to upgrade pricing - you do not need to have your old version installed!

Maybe you used to own the Windows version, but you now have a Mac... that's not a problem either!
(or if you owned the Mac version, and now you have a Windows computer)

In both cases, you would purchase from the "Upgrade from 2018 or earlier or crossgrade" row here for a new Mac version, or here if you want the newest Windows version. Just need to upgrade your 2019 version? Use the "Upgrade from 2019/2020" row.

When you purchase your upgrade from either of these rows, you will receive a complete installation - just follow the steps of the setup, and your Band-in-a-Box® will be ready to use!

PG Music Inc. shopping cart accounts were not required to purchase from our website prior to October 29, 2014. With that in mind, you may have to create an account in order to upgrade - that's OK! You'll still be entitled to upgrade pricing.
