This course is for forming your sound with the iZotope Alloy 2 plugin. iZotope makes inventive products that move and empower individuals to be imaginative. Alloy 2 gives an abundance of tools that give you both restorative and expressive command over your sound while mixing.
Your instructor for this course is producer Nick Holiday. He will be demonstrating the features and functions of Alloy 2 inside Ableton. Ableton is not necessary as you can follow on a long in your DAW of choice or just watch the demonstration of Alloy 2.

Welcome to the course. Meet your instructor Nick Holiday as he gives you a short presentation and a synopsis of the course.
Video 2 - EQ (12:49)
In this video, Nick covers the features and highlights of the EQ in Alloy 2. Nick will demonstrate the best possible approach to equalize different frequencies of a sound to get an increasingly clear and brilliant sound.
Video 3 - Exciter PT 1 (13:07)
Utilizing the exciter, Nick explains the importance of shaping the sounds within their proper frequency range. The first part of the course gives attention to a synth lead and reveals how to make the high-end crisp without over saturating.
Video 4 - Exciter PT 2 (9:20)
Continuing with the Exciter features, Nick will now focus on a drum track and demonstrate how to make a drum beat sounds more realistically dynamic. To wrap up this section Nick brings in both parts of the track and applies his technique to the master track.
Video 5 - Transient Shaping (4:37)
In this course, you learn the advantages of multiband transient shaping. Watch as Nick shapes each sound so that when they are brought together they sit more serenely in the mix. This course will show the impact of transients on both melodic and percussive portions of a track.
