Creative Mastering Platform
Elevate a good-sounding mix to a professional-sounding master with Ozone. iZotopes critically acclaimed mastering software has all the tools you need to produce a full and polished sound. With a striking new interface and a modern workflow, Ozone 6 both guides and inspires your creativity at every step.
Equalizer and Post Equalizer
Ozone includes two equalizers that combine eight bands of adjustable filters with a variety of filter shapes to choose from. Use the first EQ for initial shaping of your master, then take advantage of Ozone 6's Post Equalizer for even more shaping later on in your signal chain. The Analog-Matched EQ curves preserve analog behavior at high frequencies, giving Ozone 6 authentic analog frequency response.
Each band of dynamics is capable of three types of dynamics processing: limiting, compressing, and expanding. Easily fine-tune the dynamics of your mixes with independent control for up to four frequency bands. The interactive Threshold control allows you to set threshold points for the Limiter and Compressor stages without taking your eyes off of the gain reduction meter, which provides extra feedback while making your detailed dynamics tweaks.
Dynamic EQ [Advanced Only]
Ozone Advanced adds the new Dynamic EQ module and component plug-in, an EQ that lives and breathes with your music. Harness the precision of an equalizer with the musical ballistics of a compressor. Integrated with an intuitive workflow, these processors work in concert to create a valuable mastering tool that excels where traditional EQs fail.
Ozone's Exciter lets you dial in the right amount of bite or warmth to add to your master. Add analog character with a variety of modes: Easily add tube or tape saturation, accentuate even harmonics, and add punch or sparkle to your project. In addition, multiband and Mid/Side modes give you a huge range of sonic possibilities across the frequency spectrum and the stereo field.
Ozone allows you to precisely adjust stereo width for your master using the Imager module. As with the other multiband modules, the Imager works with up to four frequency bands-providing independent control over stereo width by frequency. An integrated Vectorscope and Correlation Meter give you valuable visual feedback for the mastering process, including Polar vectorscope modes and a Stereo Balance meter.
Ozone's Maximizer is essential for giving your recordings professional loudness and fullness. This powerful tool helps you prevent your master from clipping while dramatically lifting the perceived overall audio level-perfect for any master where you want more loudness without sacrificing crisp detail. Keep the subtle snap of a snare rimshot in a country single, or give a club track incredible impact.
Insight [Advanced Only]
Ozone 6 Advanced takes metering to a new level, offering a convenient way of visualizing your mix. Insight, iZotope's metering suite, is included as a separate component plug-in and fully dedicated to metering.
Ozone provides the finest bit reduction algorithms available, allowing you to effectively convert and dither to 24, 20, 16, 12, or 8 bits. This is useful for mastering a track for a CD (16-bit) from a 24-bit source. Ozone includes our proprietary MBIT+ dither algorithm that reduces quantization distortion with minimal perceived noise. As a result, the algorithm produces smooth and quiet conversions for the best-sounding dither possible.
Produce louder, clearer, and fuller masters with Adaptive Release
This multiband control for the Dynamics module intelligently automates the difficult task of finding the right
release times. The compressor actually engages with the audio in real time, adjusting the release values
based on the transient properties of the incoming signal.
Without Adaptive Release, youd have to pick an average release value to service both high and low
dynamic range audio—or do twice the work! Adaptive Release does the hard work for you transparently, so
you can dive right into the creative aspects of mastering without a frustrating learning curve.
Add a warm, analog sound with Tube Limiting Mode
Vintage tubes have long been praised for decades for their ability to add color and character to cold, sterile,
recordings. The Tube Limiting Mode for the Maximizer module combines warmer, more
final stage limiting with the ease and precision of digital maximizing. The resulting audio
has a tube warmth while remaining competitively loud and appropriate for modern mastering.
With a new algorithm inspired by vintage tube hardware limiters Fairchild 670 and Manley VariMu,
the Tube Limiter blends the best of digital and analog, adding a vintage sonic character to Ozones
Creatively tweak with confidence with Module Presets
Get confidence from using professionally designed presets while still retaining creative control over your
Without the convenience and sound quality of module presets, its difficult to creatively experiment with
different module combinations. Now, with module presets , you can easily load and save settings for
individual modules without affecting the settings of other modules.
The module preset systems simplified interface is more conducive to working with individual modules. So
its easy to creatively experiment with settings for individual modules, then save them to instantly load up on your next track or project.
Additional Features of v 6.1
Save time by loading with your specific presets, or get a fresh start by restoring the factory defaults. Set the default state of Ozone 6.1 to whatever you desire!
Selectable Segmentation Loops
Enjoy a new level of interactivity, selecting and looping segments with just a single click.
Track Numbers on Export
Stay organized when exporting multiple files by automatically appending file names with track number
Sound Quality Improvements
Gone are the potentially damaging clicks and pops due to changing settings. By using micro crossfades,
many of these glitches are avoided.
Ozone's Preset Manager gives you professionally designed starting points for mastering your projects. Power users will appreciate the ability to create presets that utilize all of Ozone's modules and routing capabilities for instant recall of useful configurations.
Ozone 6 allows you to master outside of your audio editing software with the new standalone application. This creative mastering platform provides comprehensive tools for any mastering project.
Throughout Ozone are forward-thinking tools which help to guide you through your mastering workflow.
