The Future of Mastering
As the industry’s most comprehensive mastering suite, Ozone 8 adds to its legacy by introducing new intelligent signal processing, spectral shaping, Tonal Balance Control, and more. Master your audio with over fifteen years of audio industry firsts at your fingertips. Enhanced with new, futuristic, intelligent features, Ozone 8 is your one stop for a tonally balanced, professional master with twelve essential mastering processors. It’s the smartest version of Ozone yet.
Tonal Balance Control
An industry first, Tonal Balance Control is an analysis tool that visualizes your audio against a reference target, helping you achieve balance and clarity in your projects. Compare your work with track references and genre standards informed by analysis on years of popular masters. Remotely control any instance of Ozone 8 or Neutron 2's Equalizer and fine tune your adjustments all from the Tonal Balance Control plug-in. Import your own tracks to create custom targets, achieve a target sonic profile, and ensure your delivery will translate for popular distribution channels.
Tonal Balance Control features:
- Provides integrated access to Neutron and Ozone EQs to easily address your low end, dynamic range, and translation issues
- Broad/Fine View: View tonal balance at an overall or granular level
- EQ Remote Control: Access all the controls from Ozone and Neutron's Equalizers remotely from Tonal Balance Control
- Low End Crest Factor Meter: View the dynamic range of your low-end
- Custom Targets: Import custom tracks to create your own targets.
Smooth and sculpt problematic and harsh frequencies with the new Spectral Shaper module. Mold your audio by applying frequency-specific dynamics, surgically or creatively, to create smooth, balanced audio. Fantastic for taming percussive transients, Spectral Shaper can tame sibilant hi-hats, harsh vocals, plucky acoustic guitars, and other overly bright mix elements. For a creative twist, use Spectral Shaper across any frequency band to experiment with timbre, resonance, and transient information without affecting other elements of the source audio.
An industry first, Neutron’s Track Assistant lets you create a custom preset based on your audio to get you to a faster starting point so you can focus on what’s most important—your creative take on the mix. In version two, we’ve made improvements including the ability to set auto-release and auto-attack on the Compressor, piano instrument detection based on machine learning, and more.

A/B your master against reference tracks directly within any instance of Ozone or its standalone application. Now an integrated process, track referencing is easy, intelligent, and incorporated into Ozone’s workflow. Track referencing in Ozone allows you to load up to 10 tracks and will identify sections of your reference for easy playback like Verse or Chorus, so you can spend less time finding and more time mastering.
Track Referencing Features:
Quickly compare and contrast your music while you're working in any module.
Track Segmentation: quickly analyzes your tracks on import, allowing you to play or loop any section in your references.
Gain Slider: Adjust the overall gain of your reference tracks for better sonic comparisons.
- Waveform View: Select, loop, rename and adjust the different segments of your reference tracks with the waveform view in Track Referencing.
- Overlaid Reference Spectra: Compare the spectral characteristics of your reference tracks against your music in any module of Ozone with overlaid spectra meters.
