It comes with an intuitive workflow, which you can control to make the processors work as you prefer. iZotope claims that this is "a valuable mastering tool that excels where traditional EQs and compressors fail". A Dynamic EQ Component Plugin is also included for use as you edit and master your tracks. You can apply it anywhere in your audio editing software signal chain.
