iZotope Spectron was easy to install as I didn't have any problems whatsoever getting it up and running.  There were no compatibility issues and it only took a few minutes to have it working.  The interface of the software is pretty user friendly and it didn't take me long to figure out what everything does.  The typical functions are clearly visible and anyone with experience with plug-ins shouldn't have any trouble understanding this plug-in as a whole.  The manual for iZotope Spectron is put together well, but I never really needed it as the plug-in is easy to use without it.


SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

While I tend not to run too many of these at a time, iZotope Spectron has never given me any problems in terms of performance.  Even if I have a few up at once it seems to run okay, but I generally only use one or two at a time as that is usually what I need.  This being said, this isn't the type of plug-in that you can run a lot of a once because it does take up a decent amount of processing power.  I am currently running the plug-in on a Mac Book Pro that has a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM.  I run the plug-in in Pro Tools LE 7.4 that runs off of a Digi 002R audio interface.  Within this configuration I've never really had a problem with this plug-in that I can remember...


OVERALL OPINION

I first used iZotope Spectron about a year ago and I was immediately impressed with the detail that this plug-in allows you to use.  It shows you exactly what frequencies your signal is and then allows you to make whatever alterations in terms of EQ that you would like to do.  I generally use this plug-in on vocals and other major parts of a recording as I use other EQs for drums and guitars because you can't run that many of these at a time and it really isn't necessary to do so.  Like all plug-ins made by iZotope, Spectron is quite cheap in price and is perfect for home studio owners.  All in all, the iZotope Spectron is a powerful EQ plug-in that goes beyond what you would think of when you would think of your standard EQ.  If you are in the market for a plug-in of this nature, I would definitely recommend trying out the demo of this that is available on iZotope's website.
