Izotope have released Alloy. Here's what they have to say about it...
The world of DAWs doesn't need another channel strip. What it needs is a better way of working with the essential tools you need for all of your tracks and busses. That's why we designed Alloy. Alloy provides the key dynamics and sound shaping effects you'll use again and again, in a self-contained and completely configurable interface.
Add iZotope Alloy to your tracks and busses and bring them to life with six processors designed to add character to every element of your mix. Alloy gives you exceptional sound quality, vintage emulation balanced with digital precision, time-saving presets and workflow features, and a forward-thinking interface that puts just the controls you need at your fingertips.
