Description: Tonal Balance Control is a kind of analyzer that shows how far the frequency balance of your mix deviated from the desired level.
Tonal Balance was created to display the interaction of frequencies among themselves and is the main analyzer for mixing music. A common example of a mix that shows poor track balance control is when you don’t hear vocals, so you turn up the volume (which increases the level of low frequencies and it puts pressure on your ears).
Understanding the work of the plugin will help get rid of the imperfect environment in which you listen to the project and speed up the process of mixing and mastering. To this end, iZotope has created the Tonal Balance Control plug-in, which allows you to visualize spectral information in a unique way.
The module was equipped with new genre presets: now you can look at the frequency content of tracks in different styles of music. The analyzer data is based on thousands of compositions in different genres – the algorithm analyzed a lot of songs to get average information about how the frequencies are in metal, rock, hip-hop, jazz and other styles. Information will be especially useful for producers working in a wide range of areas.
