Meet the new Audiolens desktop app, which analyses music from any streaming service or audio source to make track comparison and referencing simple. Create a collection of reference tracks for yourself that you may access at any moment to compare to your own mixes or masters.
The listening lens
The new Audiolens desktop tool analyses music from any streaming service or audio source to make track referencing and comparing simple. The application will gather data on important sonic parameters as you play your chosen music through the device's chosen output, enabling you to visualise, compare, and match your preferred reference files and sounds.
To create a personal library of reference track data that you can use at any moment, save the tonal information of your references to your Audiolens Target Library. You should give your songs descriptive names so you can easily compare tonal balance profiles and discover the sounds you're looking for quickly. If you have Ozone 10 and Neutron 4, the Target Library will automatically populate your references to those plug-ins.
Match any master
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
Intelligent mixing, faster
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.
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.
