Drums are instantly more edgy, vocals love getting the mess pulverized out of them, everything just sounds better with it even in small doses. So iZotope remembered the potential and built a whole new platform for Trash with more distortion algorithms and user control. The sky is the limit. iZotope, Inc., a leading innovator in digital audio signal processing, has announced Trash 2,Read More
