The Future of Mastering

As the industry’s most comprehensive mastering suite, Ozone 8 adds to its legacy by introducing new intelligent signal processing like Master Assistant, track referencing, and more. Enhanced to meet demands of the modern mastering workflow, Ozone 8 is your one stop for a competitive, professional master and seven essential mastering processors.

 

Imager

Precisely adjust stereo width for your master using the Imager module. 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. 

Imager Features:

  • Add depth and natural-sounding stereo width to mono or very narrow mixes — without sacrificing mono compatibility — with Stereoize Mode.
  • Add width to any frequency band without causing mono compatibility problems with Antiphase Prevention.
  • See the width of your mix by frequency, set crossovers, and see the effect of stereo imaging adjustments on different parts of the spectrum with Stereo Width Spectrum view.
  • Easily audition your stereo signal for mono compatibility or left/right signal reversal. 

 

Maximizer

Ozone’s highly regarded mastering limiter features multiple modes of iZotope’s transparent limiting algorithm, IRC™. With Ozone 8, IRC IV is better than ever, with Transient and Modern modes. Get more transparent limiting with less pumping at higher volumes — ideal for times when you need to tame the kick drum peaks without causing vocals to pump, keep the subtle snap of a snare rimshot in a country single, or give a club track incredible impact. Prevent your master from clipping while dramatically lifting the perceived overall audio level, for more loudness without sacrificing crisp detail.

 

Maximizer Features:

  • Experience transparent limiting with multiple modes of the IRC™ (Intelligent Release Control) Limiter technology, now with multiple improved IRC IV modes and IRC Low Latency mode.

  • Threshold Learn: Automatic threshold adjustment based on a user-defined LUFS target.

  • Threshold and Ceiling Link: decrease threshold without boosting perceived level to hear the audible effect of your processing.

  • Stereo Independence: independent stereo detection of "Transient" and "Sustain" portions of the signal for greater control of the stereo image.

  • Get visual feedback that informs your limiting with the new Gain Reduction Trace meter’s scrolling waveform display.

 

EQ and Post-EQ

Ozone includes an EQ and Post-EQ (in addition to its Dynamic EQ), each with eight bands of adjustable filters and a variety of filter shapes. Use the Equalizer for initial shaping of your master, then take advantage of Post-EQ later in the signal chain. In Ozone Standard and Advanced, the EQ also houses its powerful Match EQ that allows you to auto-match an EQ curve to a reference.

 

Equalizer Features:

  • Choose from many digital and analog filter shapes including Baxandall bass and treble, API-inspired Proportional Q, Band Shelf, and resonant High and Low Shelf.

  • Capture the sonic profile of a reference and apply it directly to your master with Matching EQ controls.

  • Adjust the equalization of the center of your mix independently of the sides of your mix with Mid/Side Processing mode.

  • Get precise control for deep cuts with digital filters in Surgical Mode.

  • Easily see how your EQ choices affect the signal with unique visualizations of phase delay, phase response, and group delay.

 

Dynamic EQ

Now in both the standard version of Ozone and Ozone Advanced, the Dynamic EQ module lives and breathes with your music. Get finer control over your sound with the precision of an equalizer and the musical ballistics of a compressor integrated into one processor. With an intuitive workflow and clearer visual feedback, Dynamic EQ is a valuable mastering tool that excels where traditional EQs and compressors fail. 

 

Dynamic EQ Features:

  • Choose from five filter shapes including Baxandall Treble, Baxandall Bass, Proportional Q, Band Shelf, and Peak Bell.
  • Toggle between analog and digital modes for minimum or linear-phase processing across six independent bands.
  • Access targeted dynamic equalization with Mid/Side and Left/Right processing modes.
  • Intelligently adjust Attack/Release times automatically across the frequency spectrum with Auto-Scale mode.
  • Dynamic nodes show the direction of your adjustments, to make it clear whether you’re expanding or cutting.

Exciter

Ozone’s Exciter allows you to add warmth and character to audio across any frequency band selection. Choose from multiple saturation modes including analog-inspired Tube, Retro, or Tape as well as Triode and Dual Triode modes. With Ozone 8, we’ve added the ability to further customize a saturation profile by allowing you to apply different modes to each frequency band.

 

Exciter features

  • Choose from the circuit-modeled Triode and Dual Triode modes or the updated Retro, Tape, Warm, or Tube modes.

  • Apply targeted processing with simultaneous multiband and Mid/Side processing options.

  • View excitation by frequency with the Saturation Spectrum display and sculpt the Exciter's frequency output with a post filter.

  • Add harmonics without drastic gain changes with natural-sounding Peak Saturation.

  • New per-band Exciter modes allow you to choose a unique distortion mode for each part of the audio spectrum.

 

Vintage Limiter

Vintage Limiter takes the "Tube" mode that we introduced to the Maximizer in Ozone 6.1 and expands it out to its own module and adds both a faster and slower setting. Glue a mix together and add character with the Vintage Limiter’s analog-sounding final-stage limiting. Retain the ease and precision of digital maximizing while bringing a natural feel to harsh and digital-sounding masters. Get the silkiness, body, and nostalgic vibe of classic recordings. 

 

Vintage Limiter Features:

  • Inspired by the Fairchild 670 hardware limiter, famous for its silky smooth compression.
  • Fine-tune the Vintage Limiter’s response to perfectly fit your source material with the Character control.
  • Get visual feedback to inform your limiting with the Gain Reduction Trace meter’s scrolling waveform display.
  • Backwards-compatible with Ozone 6.1 presets that made use of the "Tube" mode in the Maximizer. 

 

Track Referencing

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.
